Our visit to see Santa for the first time in Oregon was a success! The kids were eager to see him again and were very brave! Harper wasn’t keen on sitting on his lap but this may have been the first year with no tears!
We waited to start our Christmas tree tradition until we got to Oregon! There is such a large variety of tree farms here that we had so many choices! We landed on a farm that is close by to our house and the same farm we visited with the kid’s class in October. In true Portland fashion, our first experience was in the pouring rain and we quickly pointed to a tree to get dry as quick as possible!
We took our first ride on the Polar Express to the North Pole! The kids were so enamored with the experience and we were lucky to have Ollie & Papa join us! The snow and mountains definitely made the experience much more realistic! We packed a picnic to share when we finished and found a local park! It even started snowing on us while we ate!
