It doesn't really snow here......not usually....and last year....not at all. I think! I do remember Sugar Bear being confused because she just wasn't sure if winter had really happened because it didn't snow. It is always my hope that we'll get just a couple days of the white stuff to satisfy our yearning, and this year....it came earlier than ever.
And there was MUCH excitement! woo hoo....it snowed!
Being that our area just isn't all the used to snow and ice, the schools usually panic and call it a "snow day", even if it isn't all that bad. I think the adults are just as excited as the kiddos, and want to stay home as well.
This particular day, Sugar Bear's school decided to close, but I felt that it wasn't bad enough for me to miss work, so we just had a delayed day. We stayed home for a few hours so that we could have a little fun before it melted.
I have to say.....there is something just so endearing about watching a child make a snowman. ♥
Of course, my girl needed a bit of instruction as she doesn't recall ever making a snowman before. I'm hoping that this memory lasts for her.
She gleefully searched for the perfect nose, and carefully inserted it in our snowman's head. A curved blade of grass was the mouth she chose. I had to help her push it in so that it would stay.
He definitely needed a final touch, and Sugar was more than excited to share her hat with him. She took great care in getting it on him JUST right, after giving him a bit of grass hair on the very top of his head.
It doesn't really get much better than that!
