On Sunday we enjoyed the first snow of the season. It was beautiful to watch the lovely flakes fall. George had a much different response to the new falling snow. As many of you know George is a bit obsessed with trains, and at this moment the fascination has fallen to Polar Express. He loves to watch this movie several times a day (if he could get away with it)he loves to run around and dance to the music and laugh hysterically at the train worker with the really long beard. On Friday I bought him a Polar Express shirt for the Christmas season. He wore it proudly all day on Saturday, the shirt came with a golden ticket, just like the one the little boy in the movie has. George has carried this around with him all the time, he stores it in the side of his diaper.
Fast forward to Sunday morning, we open the curtains to see the fresh falling snow, George runs grabs his ticket and stands at the window, he is screaming "Ticket, train, ticket, train, Polar Express, ticket!" Needless to say he thought because it had snowed, just like in the movie the train would be coming to get him and take him to the north pole. John and I spent the day watching him run from window to window waiting for the train to arrive. It was so adorable and just a perfect start to my Sunday!
