Snowmen at Night

Are you familiar with this fantastic children's book? It's a favorite at our house. And it sort of came to life for us. Here's the snowman Troy and the kids put together on our snowy Saturday night:



And here it is the next afternoon:



What did that snowman do at night? It must have been doing the limbo. It certainly looks a little worse for the wear, anyway. We put green water in the spray bottle so Stomper could color the snowman green (and work on his fine-motor skills at the same time, unbeknownst to him...) but I'm not sure what he was up to by impaling the snowman on a watering can. I'm so glad the kids are starting to play more outside, despite the chilly temperatures. This household is in need of some fresh air!

This late winter/early spring weather is killing me!! Last Monday I was out raking my yard in a T-shirt, today all I want to do is curl up in a blanket, sip hot chocolate, and read a book, or watch a movie. But what I really want to do is ride my bike to a near-by city lake and watch birds.

We just found this book at the library yesterday. Now I understand. What a darling story, thanks for the recommendation.
