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.
The theme was “The Grinch that Stole Christmas”.
Then there were plaques about how the display is made…
Seriously – I never imagined it was this complicated…
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….
Everything you see is carved from ice….
But these are!
Yes, that’s a fake, fur, black hat standing high above my head.
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!!!
Can I get one of these???
We got lost in DC as we left (stupid GPS). So Liv took the camera….
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)
