Although this is one of the toughest years I have had in a long time, it has made me more grateful for all that I do have. But, let me tell you- I am sure ready for the new year!  We took a train ride up to the North Pole and then headed to Las Vegas over the Thanksgiving weekend. 

I was really impressed with the whole North Pole experience with the Grand Canyon Railway. The hotel was wonderful with delicous food. It was really an impressive system they have for such a large number of people going on the train!

 I'm not gonna lie, it was sure nice not to have to worry about putting together a Thanksgiving dinner! Everyone got to pick what they wanted, so I chose pizza for the meal:) Now it's time to deck the halls...


  1. Such a pretty card thanks for sharing!!!

  2. Sooooooooo love your card!!! LOVING the apples!!! And we have always wanted to go on the Polar Express!! hopefully next year!! So glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!! And I am pretty sure I told you ... but we will be there on the 9th! YAY!!

  3. I am so glad to have stopped by your blog today, I had never heard of this wonderful train ride and I went and watched the video. What a wonderful family thing to do! I will be coming to Arizona on Jan 28th but it will be over by then. What a shame to miss it. Even thou I am a grandmother I still believe!
    I hope things turn around in the new year for you and your family.
    Thanks for sharing your wonderful experience and your great card.
