Christmas Train Ride

This past weekend, our family took a Christmas train ride at the Bluegrass Railroad Museum.  An old-fashioned steam engine pulled four antique passenger cars for an hour’s drive through the countryside.  The cars were decked out with lights and streamers, the conductor punched letters into our tickets Polar Express style, and merry music played in the background – all of which made the trip very festive!  Top that off with a visit from Mr. and Mrs.  Claus and a conductor who led us in Christmas songs and hymns, and it was downright fun!

All Aboard!
Santa arrived in style….
much to the excitement of Eli!
Everyone got to visit personally with the big guy in red.
Mrs. Claus led us in songs.
The conductor led us in songs and talked to us about the REAL meaning of Christmas!
Our family wishes yours a blessed time celebrating the real meaning of Christmas as you remember and praise Him for the birth of Jesus who saves us from all our sins!


  1. Oohh.. the blog is looking pretty, pretty, pretty. I love the warm tan background. It suits you better than the gray. The train ride sounds magnificent. I wish you a Merry Christmas too! May many come to know the true Reason for the season.

    Oh wow, what a great field trip! Wish I didn’t get horribly sick on trains, we have two little boys that would love this trip!

    The new look is great, very soothing. Have a Merry Christmas!!
