You guys, it’s the Christmas season. I really do love this time of year! On Saturday, my amazing co-worker K treated me and Piglet to a trip on the Holiday Express. It was such an awesome gift. Match had class, and was super bummed to miss out. I didn’t tell Piglet where we were going, just that we were having an adventure. When we arrived, he saw the train, and said, “Oh wow we get to look at the train!” Can I just say how happy it made my heart that just looking at the train would have been enough for him? But I was able to make that little boy’s day when I said, “Oh no buddy, we’re going to RIDE the train!” His little face lit up with pure joy.
When we boarded, as we were driving past the Portland waterfront, he turned to me and said, “Great surprise, mommy!” My.heart.
Icing on the cake of a perfect day was when we discovered that Santa and his elves were on the train! He got a candy cane and he even got to hold Rudolph for awhile.
I love making memories with this little bug. What an awesome experience, and now we are hooked on the Holiday Express. I can’t wait to go back next year!
I’m so grateful for my co-worker for bringing such joy to my little boy’s heart.
