Polar Express

During our weekend of marathon holiday events we also got to ride the Polar express! We had a blast with our friends...things get a little crazy with 9 adults and 8 kids but we managed ok!

Our Fam!
They had a show before we boarded the train. I was trying to get a picture of the girls  with each of  us...but this was the best we got. They were just too excited!
Kinley and Mama!

Madelyn and Sav noticing they are wearing the same P.J's...yes we planned it!
Sav and Kinley
Madelyn was so excited!! They are really excited about trains right now.

 Just like the movie Santa walks around and gives each child a silver bell. Kinley wasn't sure about Santa but did better than last year. Madelyn was more excited about seeing Santa and they both LOVED their bells.

This was the best we could do with the picture though...sad!



Ashley and Sweet Sawyer
Benny Boy!
The Hoag Family
Ok, so this picture is of this elf asking the three younger kids (Carter, Kinley and Madelyn) what they want for Christmas. This entire Christmas ALL and I mean ALL the girls have asked for were towels and cake. Not lying that is it. That was exactly what they told her...she looked at us like we were crazy. Yes the girls have towels already, and I have NO idea where they came up with that.
trying to get one of all of least Carter was paying attention.
About the time we took this picture the people behind me what kids go with what kids...I explain there were a set of quads and twins and Carter! (ashley and I have gotten asked before if our kids are triplets) She said looks like they are busy and you have your hands full (common response). She then tells me she found out this week that she was having twin girls and she had fun watching our kids play...ha, I think she looked more scared to see what her life would! I wished her luck and told her to enjoy the baby stage before you have to chase for a living!

Melts my heart...I love that our girls are Bff's!
Most of the time they are friends...we have to break up fights sometimes. Suz I think...err, KNOW we are raising three STRONG willed little girls...Lord help us all! 

Better attempt at the 7 kids...
Thank you SO much Hoags and Steeces for letting us tag along on your Christmas fun. We had a blast!
