There's no business like Snow Business

We were surprised with an inch or two of snow last night! It was 60 degrees yesterday, so I knew it wouldn't last for long.

We skipped breakfast and went outside first thing. We haven't had appreciable snow in three or four years, so we had to take advantage of it immediately!

Hannah worked on a miniature snowman family.

Then we worked together on the real deal.

I didn't realize how precariously s/he was assembled until I stood back to take the picture. He collapsed about 10 minutes later!

We made the most of every flake!

What a great snowman. We have a ton of snow but it has been so cold out I have not gone out to build a snowman. I like your house.

Looks like you all had fun in the snow! Yes, what a beautiful house!

Thanks! The house is terrific (but lots to vacuum and sweep, or so the kids say!).

We have just gotten flurries for 2 days but I am glad we don't have that I think my pear trees and crocuses would be very confused.. AND I WANT TO THAW.......

Although the girls do not share my opinion
