a snowman kind of day

Yesterday we got a few inches
of beautiful pristine new snow.
This is my backyard this morning.
Doesn't it look like it's been
frosted with buttercream icing?

 so this afternoon I went out to shovel the snow off
our deck and the snow rolled up like ice cream does and... 
if you're a kid at heart like me, you know what that means!
It means you have a yard full of snowman snow!
~there are only so many snowman making days
each winter- let us not waste them.
(let us not!)

 the head takes shape

before I settled on a patriotic stocking cap in
honor of the upcoming Olympics,
I tried a few other options.
Giddy Up Snowman
I've Got a Large Wreath on my Head Snowman

and this guy?  Adios Amigos Snowman.
and here's my best idea yet...
a two faced snowman.
I decided that since his cute little face faced the street,
I'd give him a second face, facing my kitchen so
I wouldn't just be looking at a faceless head.
face it. it matters.
it's better this way.
It's only January and I'm still loving the snow,

* I have one more tip for you snowman lovers out there.
In the winter don't buy those cute little bags of mini carrots.
Always keep some old fashioned
long carrots in the fridge.
If you get a wild hair to build a snowman, those 2 inch
babies just don't cut it.
