6th Anniversary Weekend

I think that for our 6th wedding anniversary we did the most fun thing that we've ever done as far as anniversary celebrations go. We went to the Snoopy Ice show at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine, TX. Everything is made of ice that is hand carved by Chinese stone sculpture artists. The whole thing is in a tent turned freezer & they give you parkas to wear. Snoopy was one of mine & Jon's favorite cartoons when we were growing up (back when it was actually worth it to get up & watch cartoons on Saturday mornings!). What's funny is that both of our favorite was Garfield... you never know maybe they'll do a Garfield Ice show some Christmas, since they have a different theme every year. It was really fun, & we've already decided that one day when we have kids we are going to take them as many years as we are able to as a sort of family tradition.

Jon getting up from the big ice slide. He almost didn't do it, but I made him... you can tell from the look on his face I think he was glad I made him. I did it first, & being the kid at heart that I am I would have done it over & over if I could have :)

The Nativity made out of ice was enormous, and the pictures just don't do it justice! It was beautiful!

I thought the Christmas tree made out of wine bottles was really neat. It was so big!
The little house is actually made out of 800 sheets of real gingerbread baked by Duncan Donuts. It smelled so good, just standing near it!

Here we are eating our dessert at The Oak Room restaurant inside the Gaylord. I had a delicious creme brulee' and Jon had these little chocolate muffin things with raspberry and chocolate sauce.

We also got to visit the Dr. Pepper museum in Waco before we went to the OU vs. Baylor game!

It's Football time in Oklahoma!!

On my birthday weekend we got to go to one of my favorite places... Norman, OK to cheer for my Sooners. My cousin Paul who's actually more like a brother got to come with Mom & me to the OU vs. Colorado game. We had a lot of fun, & of course you know we had to eat at Ted's Escondido. If you're ever in the OKC or Norman, you've got to eat at Ted's. They have excellent Fajitas & Queso :) I've been on the road a lot lately, & we're off again this weekend. We're going to see the Big 12 Championship at Dallas Cowboy Stadium, and Jon is taking the day off so he can come too! Jon works 6 days a week, and very rarely takes off. He did take off 2 days for our anniversary, he was off on Thanksgiving day, & now he's off this Saturday... I've been very happy getting to have him with me lately.
