{Polar Express Train Set!}

So, for the last few years, I've wanted to invest in a real-deal train set to go around our Christmas tree.  Considering I have a 3 year old train-loving boy...this was the year!  I researched a lot of options, and in the end purchased an official Lionel brand train, O-gauge Polar Express set with remote. 


It's pricey, but super heavy duty... the engine car weighs a ton!  It fit nicely around our Christmas tree too.  I was so excited to have the kids open it up on the day we set up the Christmas tree in the front room.  

A few videos to remember...

Hoping it's a treasure for years and years! 
A great way to start the Christmas season!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion pictures...it is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?
