Texas Crossley Christmas

It is always nice going home to Tejas this time of year: family, warm weather,
BBQ, Brandi (our Boxer), Hilton's, fireworks, and Blue Bell!
Mahana Christmas Party
Aunt Mitzi's famous cow ride

Kelsi loves entertaining Annabelle!

Gaylord Texan
         Every year the Gaylord Texan, an amazing resort in Dallas, does an ICE! exhibit that features different magical holiday scenes. All of the sculptures are hand-carved by 40 visiting artisan from China. This year Gaylord partnered with Dream Works to produce Shrek the Halls. It was absolutely amazing and the scenes were created with TWO MILLION pounds of ice! The tent was kept at 9 degrees, so it was freezing inside! 

Annabelle fell asleep before we could even get in the tent!

Solid Ice Slide!

At the very end, they had the Nativity Scene completely carved from ice as well!

Warming our toes after 9 degree weather!

Look at that jump shot!

Rivalry still continues!
Ya can't let the Hilton's leave without an intense game of basketball!

Brandi is starting to slow down but is still as sweet as ever

Typical scenario between these two...
Brandi ignores Annabelle
Annabelle works up the courage to poke Brandi!

The Cozy Coupe!
THE best present from Grammie & Grandad
Annabelle would ask anyone & everyone to push her around all week:)
