I don't know exactly what my fascination is with the Chattanoogo Choo Choo... But I absolutely love that place. It brings back so many memories. I was trying to think about how many times I have stayed there but I got lost after about 20....
The hotel works with local colleges and provides a wonderful Christmas service.... They have Elf Tuck In. The college students dress-up like Santa's Elves and come by appointment to read to the kids, bring hot chocolate, tuck the kids in bed and take a message back to Santa about how good they've been and what they would like for Christmas.
I think my youngest (now 16) was 5 or 6 when we took her. She was memorized by the elves and also a little timid around them. But all in all, I think she loved it and talks about it to this day. (or wait.. I may have been the one so amazed and I KNOW I still talk about it!!)
Well, two of the GRANS are what I think about the right age and I've made reservations for this weekend. Yipeee!!!! (who do you think is the most excited??) We (probably just the two oldest GRANS and I are going--- hubby and 16 year old are not interested) will get to participate in the Elf workshop, have a picture with Santa, swim in the in-door pool, and have the elves tuck the children in bed! On Sunday we may go to the IMAX and see POLAR Express in 3-D!
