Mission Accomplished

So I promised the young'uns that we would make a snowman. Well snow has fallen and melted, fallen and melted, and June in particular has been wondering when this snowman making would actually happen. (I'm not a big fan of the cold so I don't go out and 'play' in it often) I myself was starting to get worried. What if it didn't snow again, or at least enough to make a snowman. So when this last deluge of snow came, I knew I had better make good on my promise. So here is our snowman.

I actually had a good time because I was dressed appropriately. Apparently if you wear the right clothing, it isn't terrible to be out of doors. Growing up in Washington near the coast, when we did get some snow, we didn't have the right gear for it, and I remember coming in freezing in all my wet clothes. Our girls don't have proper snow attire either because their mom is too cheap to buy a whole bunch of snow clothes that they are going to grow out of soon. So here's to passing on the tradition.

Seth and Liam loved the snowman. Though you know Liam and how he likes to eat, he asked if he could eat the snowman's nose. I told him no because that would make the snowman sad not to have nose. Your girls looked like they had fun. I probably should do that but it's hard when I know if I go too deep I'll mud instead of grass.

I'm so impressed! My attempt at a snowman was not good. I may need snowman lessons!

What a good mommy. I know I should get outside with Puddin' but then I think, "It's too cold. And I don't want to deal with the mess we'll bring into the house." Me lame mommy.

Way to go Maleen. I still haven't brought myself to get out in the snow yet. It looks like the girls loved it. :)
