Once There was a Snowman...

It's been snowing like crazy these past few days so we decided to take advantage. While Nate was shoveling the driveway, the girls and I started a snowman. It was rather shabby looking at that point. Nate came over with his tooth scuplting skills and created this masterpiece.

The girls and I decorated with carrot, black rocks, scarf and hat. We may have taken a few baby branches off the tree but they went to a good cause. Afterwards Nate went after the sidewalk and we girls made ourselves some treats. First we made snowballs from the falling snow and added lime and grape flavoring for some homestyle snowcones. Next we (read Katelyn and Sarah) ate all of the chocolates from the windows of our advent calendar. We finished off our sugar indulging with a frothy cup of hot cocoa and marshmallows. It was quite the morning to be sure.
Sarah couldn't part with her carrot (we found a suitable replacement). I guess they didn't just have straight sugar for breakfast.

I love your snowman making skillz; he is one dapper gent :). So glad you guys are enjoying the weather as it should be enjoyed. And that's why we don't have advent calendars around our house: all "advents" would be eaten in one straight shot. Those are girls after my own heart :).

That has got to be one of the cutest snowmen ever!! It was fun to see you guys, hope things are going well. When we came home, Brayden looked in our backyard and said... Do we ever get snow? he was so sad to hear the answer no. He loved the Utah snow. What a fun time.
