Do You Want To Build A Snowman?

Greetings to all - it's me, Maggie!  Our mom started singing that song yesterday.  You know the one - right?  Check the title of this post.  Yep.  That's the one.  And if our mom was singing it, yours might just as well start singing, too.  Spread the ... joy.  But I digress.

Mom was all "Do you want to build a snowman?!?" and invited Cam and me to join her on the deck.  I thought it was an unusual place to build a snowman, but what do I know?  She was working away and before we knew it, she said, "Hey, girls!  Look!"

Mom's snowman

How do you like that?  Corncob pipe, carrot for a nose, and charcoal for his eyes and smile!  Oh, I know what you're thinking --- didn't Cam and I help?  Well, of COURSE we did!  Here's a shot of us hard at work!

"Girls!  Look!"
"Yeah, uh huh.  Good job, Mom!  BOOM!"

Did I mention it was a mini snowman?  Her friend Bonz sent her everything but the snow for Christmas!  Isn't that cool?  She made the stuff herself. Here's another look at our snowman:

Our snowman

Oh, I know, I know.  He's missing a few chunks of coal, isn't he?  Before anyone makes any wild accusations, let me just say that the same woman who broke the lamp when she was "puppy-proofing" the house broke them.  That's right -- MOM.

"How could you even THINK I ate them?!!?"
"This calls for a cookie!"

Mom's putting the pieces back together with some waterproof glue today.  Ahem.

We didn't name him, but now, as I look out the door to the deck at him, I'm thinking "Slushy" might be good.  Or more appropriately, "Mr. Puddle".  We were supposed to have an ice storm then more snow, but instead, it's over 50 degrees out there.  Yep.  "Mr. P" isn't looking too good.

Have a great weekend -- and many thanks to Bonz for the cool snowman stuff!!!  We can't wait to build another snowman!  ... once we get more snow.

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
