Love this surprise Christmas tradition! Start your bedtime routine as usual, while Dad makes bags of popcorn and hot chocolate drinks and place them in the car, dont forget to have Christmas music playing too! When the kids climb into bed, they will find the ticket hidden. The kids are instructed to grab their slippers and head for the car. Upon entrance to The Mommy Express, we hole punch the ticket, and we travel around the city looking at all the beautiful lights. What an awesome idea!
Aww, I should do this with the boys hospital hats and bracelets since I still have them
