Last weekend was the annual Lunch on the Train with Santa outing in Monticello, IL. This is a fun event for the whole family. Everybody gets to have lunch on the train while Santa comes around to each child for a little chat. Trains, Santa, and food -- a winning combination.
Here are a few shots of Kel next to the train before we got underway. Wearing his current favourite Lightning McQueen winter hat.

Posing for some photos with Mom.
And goofing around with Dad.
Santa!!! Actually, Kel said that this Santa had "mad eyes", so he wasn't terribly impressed this year. Santa wouldn't look at the camera, so I can't prove it, but they certainly didn't have the usual Santa glint in them.
On the return journey, Kel took this photo of me and Nic.
We then set him loose with the camera for a few minutes. He took these as well...
