So, how do you top a great Thanksgiving dinner at Disney? How about snow tubbing and ice sculptures in sunny Florida? This afternoon we visited the Gaylord Palms Resort for ICE! Featuring Christmas from Around the World. It was a great afternoon, but first, we had to pick-up some caps and gloves for the boys…

Then, we were outfitted with parkas for what was to be an 9°F winter wonderland experience (and underneath the parka, I was still wearing shorts!)

And to cap-off the afternoon, there was snow balls…

and some ice sledding!

What a blast! (an icy blast, but still a blast!)

The finished product…

Nice job! It’s a good thing this home is a giveaway, because we sure would have a tough time selling it in this market!! I hope those elves keep the yard up…

Now that the house is built, it’s time to bake some cookies for Santa…

…And with a cup of milk, the biscuits are placed in front of the fireplace, so Santa doesn’t miss them!

Cookies ready for Santa

I hope he doesn’t trip over them! How would I make that claim on my homeowners insurance?
