We went up North to visit the “little rascals” last weekend. We took Kyler with us to visit his cousins. Although it was quick we did enjoy it….except for the weather….
We woke up Saturday morning to this…a bit of snow coming down.
My son got up and immediately started a fire in his stove to warm up the house…this is not good I thought, not good at all….I was thinking, “OH DEAR, looks like we are in for the long haul, the weatherman said it was suppose to be in the 50’s and PARTLY CLOUDY!!!! HELLO??? Notice the “SPRING” sign… wishful thinking….
Within 30 minutes even the volunteer fire dept truck was left abandoned, apparently they knew what was coming even if the weatherman didn’t!
It didn’t take long for the “little rascals” to bundle up and show Oma what fun it can be….yeah right………I didn’t bring any snow clothes,
I got rid of them when I moved to the desert.
It didn’t take long for little missy in the cute green snow suit to abandon the boys, and for the boys to start a snowball fight, good thing I was in the kitchen looking out the window at them…they have a pretty good arm!
After a little coaching on how to make a snowball and begin the rolling process for a snowman, (I did actually do this when I was little even though I hated snow)
The 2 cousins Owen and Kyler began the ball rolling…..
8 inches of snow fell in less than 6 hours
After several attempts of getting one ball on top of another and it falling apart….
The MASTER stepped in
Until it is just the right size…………then you
Pat, pat, pat, pat, pat to make it nice and flat on top and pat, pat, pat the sides to make it nice and stuck together before adding another piece of the body…
Look for just the right twigs and weeds for the hair and arms….
Be sure you have it just right…give him some eyes from coal, a carrot for his nose and add a scarf and wha---la---
THE PERFECT SNOWMAN
Thanks Mikie, daddy and Uncle Mike for making such a fun snow day out of a what could have been a very dull Saturday!
Rosy cheeks warming up by the fire, warm hot chocolate waiting to sip on and a warm hug from OMA made this day a fun day.
Sunday always is a special day…don’t they clean up nicely!
