What you can do with a little snow...

It snowed...a little bit...last week and Sam was pretty desperate to build a snowman.  We really didn't have any measurable snow last year so I don't think he remembers making one.  On Thursday, after I picked him up from preschool, he asked if on our way home we could stop somewhere and build a snowman. That really didn't fit our schedule and we were busy the rest of the day.  By Friday, most all of the snow had melted.  But the kids got home from school and found a small patch of snow outside and went to work.  This is what they were able to build. 

Yes, Anna is building a snowman in a fancy Christmas dress and tennis shoes.  And it was probably 50 degrees outside and beautiful so Sophia's gloves and a short sleeve shirt, well, that worked too.  That's just how we roll around here! 

Yes, a baby carrot nose, and we couldn't figure out what would work for eyes.  Nothing would stick.  So we ended up sticking two chocolate covered marshmallows (on popsicle sticks) into the snow.  Nice!  The kids had fun though and we're expecting another small snow on Christmas!  I LOVE a white Christmas! 

We have had a wonderfully blessed year with our family and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and an amazing New Year!   Love, The Moons
