Building our First Frosty...
This morning, we woke to this...
T Rex has been asking and asking to make a snowman and today he got his wish. While Bebe Sister napped in the warmth of her bed, T Rex and I suited up in his new snow gear and went outside to select just the perfect snow balls to build our Frosty. Actually, neither of us has ever made a snowman so it was a first for both of us.
Here is the process we followed...
What do you think of our finished product? He's not very fancy, not like some of the others going up around the neighborhood. But he's our first Frosty, and that means the world to us.
Poor T Rex Dad was stuck, literally, at work so he just gets to enjoy the photos while we hope by day's end he'll be able to get home and meet Frosty in person.
A few other fun things associated with waking to 6-9 inches of snow...
Footprints in the snow:
T Rex's boot prints
Anya's paw prints
Running in the snow:
T Rex's new snow boots are so comfortable he can easily run in snow and ice.
Anya also decided to get into the running action. We like to joke that when it snows she's in full camouflage - can you see her?
Do you remember your first snowman? Or first snow? Or have a memorable snow experience? I'd love to hear about it.
