Snow Much Fun!

Thursday, February 03, 2011

After four days of warm(ish) weather last week, the snow was soft enough that the boys were able to make a snowman.

The Construction Crew

Jude was the foreman of the project, but all three boys participated, and had a total hoot doing it!

When they were done, they informed me that it was supposed to look like Daddy (whom we were expecting home from a five-day business trip the next day).
"The straw is his hair, see?" Jude pointed out.

"Ah." I replied.

"Can you take a picture?" he asked.

"Of course," I replied.

This Wednesday morning, we noticed that the cats thought building a snowman was a good idea, too.

On the day of the snowman-building, it was warm enough that I had instructed the boys to leave the chicken coop door open for a few hours so the chickens could enjoy the sun. Noah got a little over-exuberant and hauled a couple birds all the way over to the house and set them in the snow. Jude promptly put them back, but not before I snapped this photo of one of them.

This stunned look says, "What the heck am I doing over here?!! And now what do I do?"

Poor girl.

  1. Great job your boys did!!! I can relate to your chicken - I feel that way when standing in a snow bank. But maybe that feeling is more of a longing for spring...

  2. That comment there, was mine, I typed the word ver. thingy into my name spot...doing too much at once makes funny things happen! ;)

  3. Dawn, this made me laugh out loud. I know the feeling--on both the longing for spring and doing too many things at once! LOL!

  4. Ha! Oh yes, that looks exactly like Jason - too funny! Although I can't say I've ever seen him with a cat on his head ....

  5. I'm with the cat!! It's an awesome snowman. The boys did a super job.
