Train ride to the north pole!

We had a blast celebrting the magic of christmas this year. We started a new Kangas Family tradition, the Polar Express Train Ride. It was amazing to see the magic come to life before my childrens eyes. Can't wait to go next year and take the whole family!

Chritmas Lights with a Disney themed twist!

I love t make new traditions with my family. Each year since my son was born I have tried to instill a sense of family and "home" in him; and now with my daughter as well. No matter if we are 100's miles from home on vacation or nestled by our fire drinking hot cocoa this is important to me, and will be one day to my children too. We love to wonder around at night this time of year finding the best neighborhoods with the most Christmas lights. This year is especially fun. My son is 3 and in full comprehension of the world around him. We visit the "Disney" land of Christmas lights right here in Rocklin off of Pebble creek Road. We had a great time with the kids, as cold as it was, walking the streets looking at the lights. I can't wait to see my children's reactions of Christmas morning when we wake up and Santa has come!!! My son is so excited that Santa is coming down his chimney! We saw Santa at the mall and we also saw him on our Polar Express Train Ride! He believes and it is so magical to watch!!! I can't wait until next year when my daughter is old enough to believe too!!!

This is a picture of my son in front of one of the many decorated Disney themed houses.
