and this year it was weird…no Santa at the North Pole…so we didn’t know what the heck was going on….

aaaw, jess, this is so great!! we did this exact same type of 'antique railroad' ride to the north pole when my kids were exactly the ages of yours, it was like a dream come true for them - we traveled up to north conway to do it, they still talk about that special year! lucky you - enjoy the magic of it all :)
