Building a Snowman

Building a snowman is something my kids don't get to do very often living in Memphis, especially in March. But on Friday it started snowing about 2:00 and did not stop until that night. We had several inches of really pretty bright white snow.

We waited until Saturday morning to go out and play in it. The kids had fun throwing snow at each other.

Kaitlyn liked to eat the snow and Kyle found a patch of ice and said he was skating.

Then they started building the snowman, at first we could not get the snow to stick together but finally Kaitlyn just packed the snow together very well and we could roll it. Here is the finished product. Luckily I had won this scarf at bunco in January and we used one of Kyle's hats for him. I cut out the eyes, nose and buttons out of paper.

I am so jealous. We move to East Tn expecting large amounts of snow. Well we never get it and now Memphis is getting it :) It isn't fair :( Glad your kids got to have fun. Sorry Kyle got hurt. He looks like he was a real trooper though!
