When we all get to be kids

I got together with one of my best friends tonight and this is the Christmas card I made for her.  Her husband worked for the railroad for many years and now is a consultant, he also spends quite a bit of time playing with his hobby trains.  I thought this image from Mo Manning was perfect for them.  The sentiment is from a wonderful set from TLC which also has a Christmas image with a train.  I feel fortunate to have such wonderful friends, and Teresa and Greg spent Thanksgiving with our family this year.  She has been my supportive rock with all the grief that I have had, and is more like a sister that I never had.  She chucked when she saw the card and yelled for Greg to come see it so I was happy that they enjoyed it.
