Santa Express

Seattle to The North Pole:


Nothing's more magical 
than a smile on a child's face
Last night was Santa Express
The Airport was the place 

Twas 21 nights before Christmas
When all boarded the plane
Headed for the North Pole
Come wind or come rain


Bags were stuffed with goodies
From, Boeing, Wings, and Pilots galore
Presents and Gifts, Mc Donalds, Clowns,
Santa and his bride and so much more


There were Christmas Carols
Streamers, Ribbons and Bows 
Hot Cocoa, Balloon animals
Only thing missing was the snow


The lights did shine 
The snowflakes they glowed
Kids took a tour on the plane
And played with Santa below


Thanks to the team
That put this together, 
Despite the work, the effort
and even the weather 

Thanks to a flight attendant named Kim
Who said, "We need a Santa Express"
Together they created some magic
The night was a huge success  

Happy Holidays from your Delta Team 

We want YOU 
to have a Great Holiday Season!

    1. Cathy, Thank you so much for the Parent to Parent program. This was amazing to bring these children to such an event. The ARC of King County is awesome!

  4. What a wonderful event! I love that you guys did this. And the pictures are fantastic!

    1. Thanks Heather, I am truly honored to be part of it. But all the work that everyone did was incredible.

  5. What a wonderful initiative from the employees of your airline. That Santa hat looks great with your uniform :)

    1. Thanks Cecilie, one of the little guests and I decided not only should we keep the hat, but pink tennis shoes too. :) It was a great thing. Thank you!

  6. Awesome! I do Pilots for Kids every year at the Phx Children's Hospital (as shown on the front end of my Santa vlog.)

    Doing it next week--can't wait, it's always such a blessing!

    1. Oh... so cool! Can you send me a photo? I'll add it to the Friday the 21st fabulous post. I do pilots for kids too. We'll be at Children's hospital on the 18th.


Thank you for your comment! If your comment doesn't appear immediately, it will after I land. Enjoy the journey!
