The Mall of the Emirates
Besides all the shopping, there were chess piece performers.
But, the real reason we went was for Leoni to build a snowman.
She was pretty positive that it would snow for Christmas, even after we tried to explain that it wouldn't happen in Qatar. Luckily, it does "snow" in Dubai at the SkiDubai snowpark.

Afterward, we enjoyed an American meal at the newly opened Cheesecake Factory.
Leoni enjoyed Mom's shake (a REAL shake made with ice cream is hard to come by).
Even after a long day, everyone was all smiles.
