You can only be young once.
But you can always be immature.
Those of you of a certain age will remember the Calvin & Hobbes comics. I bought my kids the complete Calvin and Hobbes box set, big honkin’ red hardbacks, and they love ’em. I flipped through for some snowman inspiration and man, I was in tears.
Want to feel young again? Go get yourself some Calvin & Hobbes. Seriously.
Anyway, I was looking for something to top last year’s creation:
and here’s what I came up with:
Imperfect, I know (I’m particularly bummed about the one the sled went through), and I missed one; I was working from memory and trying to beat the ice & rain ready to blow in.
I had to take the pictures individually, because every time I stepped away to snap a photo this happened:
Yes, I know, I’m a child. My husband thinks I’m embarrassing. I don’t think he “gets” snowmen— he made the kids bring in all the hats and scarves we left “lying all over the ground.”
My children, by the way, find this to be completely normal behavior for me.
But we’ve got all this snow outside… may as well amuse people driving by. Am I right?
How’d you spend your snow days?
