Choo-Choo Christmas

Since my boys love trains so much, Honey Daddy decided that this year we should get out the electric train set that he got when he was a little boy. We decided that the boys were probably old enough to understand that they can look, but not touch the train without help. So Sunday afternoon he got out the train set and got it all set up.

Needless to say, there were a couple of little people at my house that were pretty happy about that decision!

Eli LOVES the train too. Every morning he gets up, walks to the tree and asks, "Train, please?" Who could say no to such a cute request?!

Well, if I am looking for the boys anytime in the next couple weeks, at least I know where to find them!
Right here!

  6. What is it with boys and trains? They all seem to love them, don't they? The pics of the two of them together are adorable. - Sherean

  7. super adorable. we built a thomas & friends track around the tree for the 3rd year in a row. we bought an electric one but little hands refused not to touch, and broke every piece. it's all in a box now, and we'll wait until he is 7 or 8 to bring out the electric set again. happy WW and take care.

  10. Aww, what a great idea! Our tree is huge and sits way down to the floor, but maybe one year we can do a train too. Such handsome little guys too!

  12. How cute is that!! I wish that my boys were so well behaved...I bet if we put a train under our train they would take it apart and have it wrapping around the couches or something!!

    Your pictures are so cute!! What great memories they are going to have of Christmas and their Dad's Train!!

  13. Oh so cute... I don't think we could do that with Buddy... He likes trains too much, it would be too much temptation!!
