ICE 2014 {Frosty the Snowman}

My friend Abby, and her ever-growing brood, always stop by on the way to her family's Christmas.  For the 3rd time, we enjoyed the Gaylord Texas ICE exhibit this year.  The theme was Frosty the Snowman, and I thought it was really cute (better than The Nutcracker, not as good as Peanuts, because who can top snoopy?)

Abby and I went with her two older kiddos, while her husband Brian waited out in the warmth with the babies.

The ice slides are always fun

This year, they had a section called the "frostbite factory" where they showed you details about how they turn this 2 million pounds of ice into a display. 
Complete with carving demonstrations

The end of the exhibit is always a big nativity scene.  This year they added a big angel to the mix...

Outside of the exhibit they had a picture made of legos, and a tree decorated with lego ornaments.  Brooks came up with some ideas for a lego tree next year.
had to get sis Emery in on the pics too

the big kids did several runs on the snow tubes.  here are the babies while we waited...
and then we went to the atrium to check out the decorations before we left
