Our church held a Polar Express night for the kids recently. The kids had a blast and the parents had some peace and quiet at home. It was a simple idea filled with lots of grand ideas! The kids came in their pajamas, brought blankets and pillows to lay on, ate finger food for dinner, watched the Polar Express and had a visit from Santa.
I can laugh about it now after seeing the joy and excitement of the children. Rest assured I was not laughing then! :)
