We Interrupt this program…..Snow Break!!!! (Pictures)

I have to take a break from our D.C. trip to post snow pictures. Sorry….but it’s a fact of life when you have children. They like to see their creations posted for viewing.

Before I post pictures, I must tell you that it wasn’t supposed to end up this way. They wanted the snow man to be as tall as their father. After it fell over twice they decided as tall as they were was sufficient. They were somewhat stymied by the choice of eyes, nose and mouth. They raided the kitchen and could only come up with those little hard candies….the cinnamon discs and the cinnamon sticks from my spice cabinet for a mouth….or what ended up being teeth.

Do you know what happens when you stick cinnamon discs in snow to make them look like eyes? You get eyes all right…..but it turns this innocent snow man into Frosty’s evil twin….Evil Snow Dude….who happened to be talking on the phone to my very dear friend Heather. ( I told you I would post it…)

I give you……Evil Snow Dude and his creators.








He looks like he walked off the set of one of the original Star Trek Episodes…..They liked him…till he fell over again….I think he was too top heavy.

  1. Great pictures!!

    I’ll have to see if I can get a picture of my daughter’s snow fort/tunnel that she began this afternoon.

    Ohhh….The boys would love that!! They wish we would get a snow like that. We haven’t had one in a few years. I told them about the ones I grew up in Ohio.

  3. He looks great even for a frosty’s evil twin. Nothing worse than working really hard on a snowman and he falls over.

  7. The whole red eye thing started out as a matter of convenience….Mommies candies are round. I certainly wasn’t thinking about how they would look. But the boys thought it was pretty funny. They put that thing together so many times……

  8. LOL That is so funny. They did a great job and they were very creative. 🙂

    It was funny! I just felt bad for them when it fell again…..but hey…maybe the next snow will last longer.

  13. You boys did a great job. Sometimes you can use buttons for the snowman’s face. You would have to a lot of help to get it as tall as your Dad. Good for you both, creating a snowman takes hard work and good communication between you two.
