First Snowman

The snow packed wonderfully, but we picked up lots of leaves, so we had to top-dress it with some clean snow. With a lack of raw materials (charcoal, carrots, corncobs, branches, etc.), we had to improvise with what we had on hand, which turned out to be cattails, Oreos, and a Twizzler. Ryan had a lot of fun rolling, smoothing, and poking, but seems a bit frightened of the finished product. Nika is equally as disturbed as now each time I let her out, she barks defensively at the "intruder" in the back yard.  We call him the "AbominOreo Snowman".

Awesome! I'm still in denial it's even December, let alone almost Christmas. It's hard to think winter when it's 45 degrees and raining and the grass is still pretty much green. :op Can't wait to see you guys again!
