**NOTE: I accidentally hit "publish" rather than "save post" at first, so if you read this between 9:00 and 9:20, it likely made NO sense, there were a ton of misspelled words, and you wondered what the hell I was doing. Sorry. There may have been wine involved.....***

So, in honor of the FREEZING weather we’re experiencing, Brian and I took the kids to the Gaylord ICE show this weekend.

Since it’s REALLY cold at the display, I dug out all the hats, gloves, and scarves I could find.

As you can see, I couldn’t find the girls hats. Luckily I have a plethora of Santa hats.

So that's what they wore.

The theme was “The Grinch that Stole Christmas”.

As you are herded in (kinda like an amusement park) there are walls and walls of Dr. Seuss lithographs, poems, and other artwork.

Horton Hears A Who – My favorite :)

049 - Copy

Then there were plaques about how the display is made…

Seriously – I never imagined it was this complicated…

050 - Copy

My little Eskimo.


Even though we had winter jackets, gloves, hats and scarves, they provide you with these beautiful blue parkas.

We wore them over what we already had on.

And we STILL froze….


And now, I’ll let the pictures talk.

Everything you see is carved from ice….


Except these.


But these are!

Yes, that’s a fake, fur, black hat standing high above my head.

Don’t judge.


I was the warmest one there.

The highlight – the ICE slide – So. Fun.



Liv coming down.


Look how big her parka was!


Sydney. She wasn’t in a picture taking mood.




Very cool ice tunnel we had to walk through….

Again – no judging about the hat.

Or the fact that with 10 layers I look like the Michelin Snow Tire man.

A gorgeous Nativity scene we saw once we got through the Seussification…

My gorgeous, VERY BUNDLED UP, girls....


And an entire tree – made of PEEPS!!!

115 117 118 119

Can I get one of these???

We got lost in DC as we left (stupid GPS). So Liv took the camera….

120 122 123 124

Not quite as pretty.

This is “Foxy” – Sydney’s beloved Fox stuffed animal.


She also has a “Kitty”, a “Jaguar” and a “Pup”.

She’s very original. I can envision my grandchildren in the future:

“Girl” and “Boy”.

We had a great time and the girls loved it (once we thawed out and had some Mexican food for dinner)

WOW! This is in DC? The hubs is from Falls Church, and he's never heard of it! That looks like such a total trip- we'd be in!
