Snowman #1, 2013

I don't know if we will make other snowmen in the future this year, but I thought that I'd be optimistic. We've had a whole weekend of snow on and off. Our earlier attempts failed because of our snowicidal children who would stomp any snowball larger than hand-held size. Any time my wife would get a bigger ball J and L came along and tromped the ball with their boots. On Monday, L was inside for the early construction and J was less snowicidal. So he and Mommy were able to make a snowman.

L's contribution was much more positive than earlier in the weekend. Instead of giving the snowman the boot, she gave him a hat.

Then the children went back to the swing set. While J was going back and forth, he wanted to catch a snowflake on his tongue. He said it didn't taste very good.

"Help out!!!" L shouts.

It was another fun snow day in Yorkshire. All the more so for J, whose school had posted at 7:45 a.m. "Probably opening on time." He wailed and moaned like he was undergoing the torments of Hell. The school must have heard a lot of wails and gnashing of teeth from all over town, because at 8:00 a.m. they posted "No school today." There was much rejoicing.
