Another Christmas tradition…

Well, not so much a Christmas tradition, but more like a winter tradition. And that is: making snowmen. As soon as the first flake of snow arrives, my kids are jumping in their ski pants, snow boots, and five layers of everything else, in the unrealistic hope that they will fill the garden with snowmen of all sizes. We have been living in New Jersey for seven years and have had a fair amount of snow over that period of time. Let’s say that on average, it snows significantly enough about four times a winter. That’s twenty eight opportunities to make snowmen. Not bad! You would think that we would be totally pros at snowman designing and making after such a long time. Especially when my kids have been planning the whole snowman business since birth.

Well, let’s see, shall we? This year, this is what our snowman looks like…

Pretty good hey? Well, that’s the closest to a snowman it ever got.

These are pictures of our snowman projects from previous years…

Hard to describe what that is…

I think that might have been the head…

One of the main issue might be the lack of concentration on the job…

 

 

So it comes down to this: either my kids have no idea what a snowman looks like, OR they think snowmen are barbapapas and can adapt to any shape they want (If you don’t know what a barbapapa is, you should read my blog more often. I went through A LOT of trouble to educate the world about barbapapas…)

Either way, I think its fair to say that we are totally lame at making snowmen.
