After decorating our tree, we all sat down to watch The Polar Express. This is a yearly tradition at our house. The boys get their pillows and blankets, and we have hot chocolate (of course), and fall in love all over again, with this film.
Before this movie was ever made, I acquired the book, while working at the grade school. I love the book, and truly feel that the movie does the book justice. My favorite line in this book/movie is: "The most real things in life, are those that you can't see..." Isn't that true?
I also have "the bell", that we add to our tree every year, before watching this movie.
