Christmas Train

This is where I have found my boys a lot lately...


Growing up, we always had a girly Christmas tree, just for me and my sister Kristen. So this year my mom wanted to do a boyish tree for Gavin. She came up with a transportation tree... It has trains, police cars, school bus, boats, airplanes, and more! Mitzi has a train that she let us borrow. It goes around and around the tree, it is complete with smoke, lights and sound effects! Gavin loves it, the child could sit there all day and watch it go! When he woke up from his nap today, he said "TRAIN, CHOO-CHOO, PLEASEEEE!!!!"

This Christmas will be so much fun!!!

How cute! It's so good to see Gavin enjoying the holiday season. You are right; you are going to have a fun Christmas.

I'm so glad that Gavin likes the train! I didn't remember that it did all of that! I can't wait to see the tree!!! Love you all, Z

What a great idea! I love having a theme tree for the kids also. And what better than trains and cars, etc. for a little boy. You may have an upset little guy when it is time to take the tree down :)

My mom passed my ornaments along to me once I got married. I had so much fun unpacking them this year and walking down memory lane. It is exciting to now in turn get to make memories with/for our kids.

So, is Gavin really into trains? Brady is SOOO into trains. Anytime someone asks him what he wants for Christmas he says "choo-choo train!" Makes it easy on Mama---I mean Santa...

I LOVE the train and tranportation idea!! I've always wanted a train around the tree... maybe next year when Owen actually gets into it!
