A Rare Opportunity

When it snows in Loa with a snow that is suitable for building snowmen, then you have to hurry and get it done!! 8 days ago we got one of those snows. It's gone now, but, Boy, Oh Boy, Chance and I were on it. As soon as we got home from dropping Aubree off at school, I grabbed some gloves and sat Oaklee in front of the french doors where she could watch. Chance watched with her for awhile, while I ran out back and began rolling snowballs. It took about 30 minutes for me to quickly whip up this fellow. about 20 min. into my project Chance came out with his cowboy boots on, no socks , and his Jacket on upside down. We hurried to finish up snap a picture and run inside before Chancee's toes froze. Less then an hour later our poor snowman "In the sun he melted" just enough to slowly lay down on his side and by the time school was over all that was left was just enough snowballs for the two older boys to smash up in a pile.

That's where they still lay. See, that's what happens in Loa, We will more then likely have remants of those snowballs in the yard until April. And more then likely all the next snowfalls will be those teeny, tiny little snowflakes that won't stick together. Somethings you just can't put off when your living in Wayne County.

I'm glad somebody gets excited when it snows. I never do anything after it snows but run outside and shake my fist at the heavens

Awesome snowman!!

Way to be on top of it. I probably would of ran inside and curled up in a blanket and drank hot cocoa!

I remember Daddy helping us build roll and lift balls that were way to big for us to get home. Maybe that's why at least once a year I build a snowman with my boys.

Way to seize the moment.
