With all the snow we had, I would've loved a row of cheerful snowmen across the front of my yard. But I have a hard time convincing the boys to build snowmen at our house. Where's the thrill in that?! Sledding down the big hill is just so much more fun.
I finally got them excited about making a huge pile of snow in the front yard for a project, but we had to let it sit overnight to settle, and that was when it warmed up and began to rain.
So much for the 'dig-loo'.
But, when they had an overnight at Aunty Tami's (who lives in a very flat space), making snow sculptures had more appeal!
The traditional snow man requires a lot of snow and a lot of work.
This little snow sentry, "with a leaf-pike, Mama", is guarding the house, behind him.
What would Christmas be without a snow tank?
To the right of Tate is his snow alien. See the eye, on a stalk, on the top of his head?

I think Tate has been reading a lot of Calvin and Hobbes...
Then they needed to warm up inside, and give some attention to their Webkinz friends.
