Snowman Building 101

Winter arrives to central Iowa! 

Big and wet fluffy flakes...
the kind that look
like goose feathers
falling from the heavens.

Get out the snow pants,
get out the
mittens and boots...
let's go build a snowman!
Roll a big snow ball on the bottom...
Roll a little bit smaller one for the snowman's tummy
&
a baby-sized one for it's head...
Add a carrot
for it's nose...
Let's keep him warm
with daddy's 
ISU
stocking hat...
add a few corks 
from momma's 
cork collection
for eyes
and
a happy face...
 Say "hi" 
to
Mr Snowflake!
  A snowman...
shaped
from the warmth
of a little
ones hands...
that melts
this grandma's heart...

And there you have it,
Snowman Building 101.

Grandma B gives the little one an A+,
passing with flying colors!!

 
Have a good week everyone,
Brenda

Hi Brenda, You got more snow then we did. I have three grandsons who are wanting to go coasting so bad with the new sleds that came Christmas. Your grandson is so cute building his snowman. Those bring back memories of the generation of being a child, watching a child, and watching grandchildren having fun in the snow. Have a great day. Your Missouri Friend.

Snowless in cedarburg wisconsin. For the first time in a long yime there was no snow for The Winter Fest and temps in the 40's. Bed races usually held on the creek were held on the street and the ice sculptures were melting fast! Love your snowman especially all those corks!

These photos are so much fun! My granddaughters are too far from me to do this sort of thing with them so I'm a little envious.
