Sno-more SnowmanYesterday it snowed so hard that we had almost two feet or so of beautiful powder out in the cul de sac. The girls wanted to make snowmen so we headed outside and made two HUMONGOUS snow beasts in record time. Our lovely neighbor came out to help, and generously donated coal for the eyes and buttons. I must admit that at four feet high they were magnificent!
At 6.15 this morning, we were woken by the sounds of a snowplow mercilessly destroying our creations....five minutes later he got stuck...not just stuck, but REALLY stuck! He sat for over an hour waiting for another plow to come rescue him.
I wanted to take him a cup of coffee, but I didn't...call it retribution.
Paisley was DEVASTATED to see her snowmen gone...thankfully there is no shortage of the white stuff, so today we will head back out and make more. This time we'll take photos! I lost a scarf in the process of the above massacre, it will be recovered sometime in April.

Darn those plowmen!! Ruining all the fun!

Prior to that, though, sounds like a spectacular snowy Christmas!!
