Over the past few weeks, we’ve had multiple sleet/ice events. I, in no way, count that as snow. I refused to take our Moonpie out in that mess and declare it his “first snow”. No. Just no. All I wanted was to have one good snow that would cover the ground and for us to be able to make a snowman. Is that too much to ask?! I didn’t think it would take until today for that to happen.
Elsa raged at our front door all afternoon yesterday. It literally sounded like she was building her castle…in our front yard. We woke up today to a cozy blanket of snow. I couldn’t have been happier:) Although, not snowman building snow, I did get half of my wish and I’m okay with that.
I personally think it looks hilarious when we do have snow that will stick we are able to make a snowman. Rolling the sections around in the yard is the easiest way to get your snowman built quickly. However, because we get so little snow, it also gathers up leaves, sticks and dead grass. When we are done making those kinds of snowmen, I stand back and imagine them saying, “Argg! I just woke up and I can’t find my comb! I’ve got all of this junk in my hair! Arggg!” Not the prettiest snowman but he gets the job done:)
