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…

Naturally, I was wearing shorts, which in the end was really short-sighted…

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!)

It was fun at first…

but, it got colder…

and colder…

and we didn’t even WORK there!

Still, it was pretty amazing and the ice sculptures were beautiful…

especially, the Nativity scene!

After the ICE! display, we took a minute or two to warm-up, then visited the Ginger Bread Room…

where we built a ginger bread house…

ICE! ICE!
ICE! ICE!

TA-DA! (although I’m not quite sure how much candy went on the house and how much went into Adam’s mouth!)

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

and some ice sledding!

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

Okay, so I’m not complaining about the snow anymore!

I’ll take snow any day over ice and freezing rain!! This morning the driveway was pretty much a sheet of ice:

and my truck was literally encased in it:

Fortunately, the world famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, did NOT see his shadow this morning, which means we’re going to have an early Spring!

And statistically speaking, Phil has been right about 50% of the time, so you couldn’t do any better if you flipped a coin! 😉
