We had a great time as a family checking out the local HUGE hotel and Christmas display. You know the kind of hotel that has a boat ride inside and a GIANT Christmas tree. It has been so long since we just did things like this for fun. Not packing, not cleaning, not working in the yard...just having fun together as a family.
Then we splurged and got tickets for ICE. It is a beautiful ICE display that takes months to make. One part of it was dedicated to the true Christmas story with a Nativity and a narrator that tells the story of Christ's birth.
The main ICE display this year is the GRINCH. These large ICE sculptures are larger than we are. And here at the end, the GRINCH's heart grew 3 sizes that day.
The girls next to the ROAST BEAST...Notice that wall behind the display is all of ice too.
The highlight was the huge ICE slide. Chuck and the girls waited in the cold to go down (you sit on your coat to slide).
Tissy on the slide.
Tally on the slide (she was the brave one who went first).
Entering WHO-VILLE. Good thing they loan out the jackets to keep you warm.
One of our favorite parts...the ICE tunnel. What incredible work. This was a COOL treat for our family. I just love this picture.
