Polar Express Christmas Breakfast

One of the things I forgot to mention on our busy Saturday morning this past weekend was our ward Polar Express Christmas Breakfast! Let me tell you...we love our ward! As I mentioned, the theme of our Christmas breakfast came from the movie and book, "The Polar Express". When we arrived, one of the brethren stood at the door to hand us a 'train ticket' and before we "boarded" the cultural hall Ü, there was a conductor checking our tickets and punching a hole in them. The tables were so cutely decorated! The activities committee were dressed as railroad engineers and each table had paper train tracks running through the middle adorned with acorns, sticks and snow flurries. Yep, so creative!
We filled our tummies with scrambled eggs, sausage, pancakes, fruits and washed it down with milk and apple juice. After breakfast, a few of the young men came out with chef hats and served everyone hot chocolate while the "Hot Chocolate Song" from the Polar Express Movie played (without the fancy choreography of course lol)! Yep, so cute...again! Ü Here's a video clip of the scene from the movie. Ü

We had to leave early to in order to make it to Build & Grow but just as we were leaving they had all of the primary children gather around one of the brethren as he read the Polar Express book. With all of the busy'ness that was going on that Saturday morning, I'm so glad we took the time to make it over to our ward activity. What a treat! Ü
