While the others in the house were very excited about new electronic toys, JJ was pleased with his new train.
We watched the "Polar Express" on Christmas Eve, and after the gifts were opened on Christmas morning JJ went up and down the hall with his own "Polar Express" on a trip to the North Pole.
The flatbed car had two little cars that could be removed, and they were taken on many a journey away from the train and back again.
The best part about this gift for me is that it was all hand-made by our neighbour, Al. The workmanship is absolutely amazing, and long after JJ has outgrown it as a toy, it can grace a bookshelf as a piece of art.
