Last year, Santa was having trouble finding coal for the kids stockings. We came across a place this weekend that has coal for sale pretty cheap that we didn't even think of - the Prairie Dog Central. They have souvenir bags of coal in their gift shop.
We had taken the kids on a train ride last night. It was pretty cool. They thought it was going to go much faster. They had put plastic over the train windows to keep in the heat but it obscured the view a bit. There was a Christmas party out in Grosse Isle. We even sang carols on the way back.
All-in-all, it was a fun time on the train.
