this weekend we started transforming our home into a christmas wonderland. ok, not really, but we set up our tree and train. this lionel set has been in matt’s family for a long time. it was his as a boy and he grew up playing with the little people and train cars, and making the tracks wind all the way around the tree. it was a christmas tradition that matt and his dad started and it’s the sweetest thing to see him carry it on with our son. plus, bonus, the cat is terrified of it and it keeps the cat from eating the tree.
