Considering our 5 am departure from home, it was a long time till our midnight arrival.But everyone except Nathan waited up for us; Matthew even came to the train to meet us.
The next morning it was pretty obvious why we needed to get here. As you can see, Santa came right down Santa Claus Lane on the Randolph fire truck, handing out candy to all the good little boys and girls. Wow! Not since my days in Yoakum have I seen Santa ride a fire truck.
Definitely this was the place to be for Christmas. See the snow shoveling? We don't get that in Texas, no siree.
Of course if you are seven, shoveling can be a good place to burn off some energy.
