first snowman


Last weekend we got a nice amount of snow on Saturday morning. It wasn't a TON of snow by my standards (I grew up in MN). But, it was the perfect kind of snow for snow balls and snowmen. I wasn't really sure if Fay and I were up to the challenge. I can't remember the last time I made a snowman. Perhaps never.

We went to our "backyard".....wait this deserves a little explanation. Our co-op consists of 4 buildings -- 2 sets of 2 buildings separated by a street. Each set of 2 is separated by a couryard with grassy circles and winding sidewalks. The grassy areas are mostly fenced off so as not to let little feet mess up the lawn or the flowers. But last summer my co-op decided to to a "trial run" of de-fencing ONE of the grassy circles. This is where we decided to make our snowman.

Fay helped find the sticks for the arms and helped stick them in. She also helped push the balls of snow a bit.
