I actually got to open one of my Christmas presents early! Can you believe it? I had a hard time believing it too.
After a long ride down to Portland to check in at our hotel we headed over to the Mount Hood Railroad. I watched the Polar Express movie in the car on the way over. We got to our destination right as the movie was ending (perfect timing), and Mom handed me a present and told me I could open one present early. It was a ticket like on the Polar Express but I didn’t really get that. I knew we were at the train station so I was more focused on that than the ticket in the box.
We rode in a train car named Katharine. I was pretty excited about that because I thought it was a pretty name.
