Yep! Another bug bit me!!!!! YUCK! I have missed all of you but, have been under the weather with another stomach bug. I am so tired of this! I am better now. Mom has arrived from California for her Christmas visit. She got here Friday & we did have fun with the little ones on Friday & Saturday. I wanted to share a few more Christmas photos with you. First I wanted to show you two of my Fitz & Floyd cookie jars(that didn't make it into the home tour) that I love...one is Santa in a plane & one in a motorcycle with a sidecar. There is a third one that is not out, it is a car. They are so funny. And so big, oh the storage delima of all the treasures. How do you all store yours???? Maybe you can give me some ideas.
Also, I am showing you a few of the photos from a previous year of the ice sculptures that are done at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine Texas. This year our whole family will go to view this treat the day after Christmas. In the past it has only been my myself, my husband & oldest grandchild that has had the pleasure of this event. This year it is our gift to the family. These sculptures are done in ice carved by artisan's from China. They use over 3 million pounds of ice for this event & all of this is viewed in a chilling 9 degrees. I am showing the animals (note that the bridge has LED lights inside the ice)on the pond, a couple of the colored ice images with my six foot tall husband next to them to show you the size & scale of these huge carvings & then EXTRA HUGE nativity. They use three types of ice #1 clear ice which has no air in it( for the nativity) #2 colored ice #3 regular ice which is white & dense (because there is air in it). I hope you enjoy these photos & I will post this years version later. Hope you are having a Happy Holiday Season.
