When D got home from school, she gathered the snow from the top of the picnic table and made a little snowman named Chillie Willie. . .
Chillie Willie's eyes are chocolate chips, his nose is a bit of yellow bell pepper and his mouth is red bell pepper. He is about 8 inches tall.
THEN IT BEGAN TO SNOW AGAIN about 8:00 last night and it snowed all night until D came into our room this morning at 4:30 to tell us it snowed!!!! So we looked out the window and I sent her back to bed, but she never fell back asleep. So we were out and playing in it this morning about 6:45!!
We got about 5 1/2 inches. This is a HUGE snow for us. The last time we had anywhere near this much snow was New Year's Eve 2000/2001.
C didn't really love the snow first thing this morning, so Daddy took him on a ride in the wagon while sister worked on Chillie's Mama, Mrs. Willie!!
Here is D with our completed Mrs. Willie.
Mrs. Willie's close-up. Here she is decked out in her apron, snow hat and a friendly smile.
D decided to see how it would be to jump on her trampoline with it covered in snow. She didn't jump long.
C warmed up to the idea of the snow a bit more as the morning went along, but he still preferred to look at it from his window.
