A Texas White Christmas!

Oh what fun we had traveling to Texas and seeing family and friends!!! It was Everett's first trip to Texas and he even got a cowboy hat as a souvenir (see adorable picture below). We ate TONS of amazing food thanks to my parents and Uncle Richard. We literally had a smorgasbord of gourmet food for every meal all week. Adam and I even got a date night in downtown Ft. Worth! Of course, we didn't miss our opportunity for some Tex-Mex cuisine and ate at Chuy's twice. Everett had a fun time too trying new foods, meeting new people, and being the star of the show the second a camera was turned on. And if we weren't having enough fun already, it snowed on Christmas Eve and stuck around til Christmas day....it was actually a white Christmas in Texas!! What a memorable Christmas this year was!!

Random fact from Adam: "The new $1.5 billion Oasis of the Seas is the largest cruise ship in the world -- 40% larger than the next biggiest. The ship:
* Is about 20 stories tall
* Is 5 times the size of the Titanic
* Has an ice rink, a small golf course and a 750-seat outdoor amphitheater.
* Has 2,700 cabins
* Can accommodate 6,300 passengers and 2,100 crew members.
* Has 4 swimming pools, volleyball and basketball courts
* Has a 750-seat outdoor theater that doubles as a swimming pool by day and an ocean-front theater by night. The pool has a diving tower with spring boards and two 33-foot (10-meter) high-dive platforms.
* Has an indoor theater that seats 1,300 guests
* Features an 82-foot long zip line, the first zip line on a cruise ship
