Head, shoulders, knees, and toes

Here's the rest of the snowman we made this morning.
You can see a close up of the head in
the post below (minus the pine needle hair).



Bearing no hard feelings after his night in the basement,
Houston stayed warm on my shoulders while the kids went sledding.


Both kids, but Julia especially, liked adding snow the snowmen.


Over and over again Julia would get down bend down and pick up snow to add.




Once we pulled out the sleds Sam was done with snowmen. He tried all variations of going down the hill. Feet first, on his belly, and my favorite as a kid - on his knees.





It wasn't really that cold out (I didn't have socks on inside my boots and my toes were plenty warm), but hot chocolate seemed appropriate with snow piling up all around us. I didn't get an argument out of the kids. :) We had a snack and watched Jack Frost (after the part where the dad dies). While it might have been nice to sleep in this morning it was also nice to have the house cleaned, two snowmen built, the sidewalk shoveled, a movie watched, a toy sold on Craigslist, and a meeting with a client all accomplished before lunch.
