Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes...

Yes, these are a few of my very, very, very favorite things. We don't get snow here very often, but when we do, like what happened just before Thanksgiving, it takes me back to a childhood of puffy coats and moon boots, inner tubing (Is it "inner" or "inter"? Anyway, you know what I mean) and hot chocolate, thermal unders and the familiar *crunch*crunch* underfoot.
Between waking up from naps and the early setting sun, we didn't have much time for playing, but here are our cute little snowballs out for some fun.

I must have forgotten most of what I know about building snowmen, because for the life of me I couldn't pack the stuff into any recognizable shape. I think throughout the day, the moisture melted through the cracks in the deck and what was left on top was dry powder. Ever try making a snowman out of powdered sugar? Doesn't work too well. No matter. Seth was perfectly happy making a snow mountain, as seen posing next to his Mini-Rainier.

I hope we haven't seen the end of the pretty white stuff this season! We even built a fire in our rarely-used wood-burning stove and enjoyed a toasty evening all together. That's one of my favorite things too!

I loved the snow! Even with the ridiculous amount of problems it caused on my property, I got really sad to see it go!

You have to roll snow men, that's the only way to get them to work. Start with a small ball and then just roll it around everywhere until it gains. I think your snow mountain is fantastic.
