I heart my new lamp.

Look at what Craig brought home for me last night:
(from Restoration Hardware)
He was doing a plumbing job with his dad, and there was this lamp laying out on their back patio. The lady said they were giving it to Goodwill because it was broken. Craig told her he would take it because he knew I liked to fix stuff like that. So he brought it home and all he had to do was screw the post back into the base. Seriously. So.... instead of buying it new for $299!!! I have a new (I'm pretty sure it's brand new) lamp for FREE! Thanks Craig!

Our family got to go and see Ice! at the Gaylord Texan. (Thanks Grandma Charlotte!) It was so neat. Of course all of the ice sculptures were really cool, but also, the whole place is so amazing at Christmas time. Starting from when you turn onto Texan Drive. All the lights, and decorations... the kids loved it all!
The Grinch greeted us at the door. Paige had to give him a little smooch.
Hee hee, her hood makes her look like she has Marge Simpson hair. :)
Even being there and touching everything, it was hard to believe it really was all ice!
The kids really liked this ice tunnel. Carys takes pictures just like her momma! :)
The nativity was sooo beautiful!
(all of our red noses can give you an idea of how freezing cold it was in there. I told Craig it would have been perfect if they could figure out a way to make it 75 degrees in there ;)
After, we had a yummy dinner at Texas Roadhouse. In this picture, I can really tell that my kids are growing up. Don't they both look like they are getting so big!?
