A Dozen Snowmen and A Dog


 What to do with a yard full of snow 
that you never really wanted...

 Make a snowman? 

 I had two snowballs rolled and then I was pooped out.  

(old.age.setting.in)

  But as I'm building these 2 big snowballs I'm thinking,  

Snowmen.  Not one.  Not two.  But a yard full of snowmen. 

 Good advertising.   "Look at all those snowmen!"  "And the ear"  "Huh!  They must sell hearing aids here...  Let's stop and buy a hearing aid."

Then I thought.  But I can't even build one snowman yet alone a yard full of them. 

 Then the lightbulb!

I called my unemployed son and asked him 
if he wanted a job.


He worked hard into the night.  
I went out and helped him off and on.  It was bonding time for mother and son.  Today after church Gary and I visited the $1 Store and then put the finishing touches on the faceless mounds of snow.

And now, we have a dozen guests living in our front yard and they just might be here for a while....


Meet Perry the Party animal...

Your snow men are adorable and to think you even gave them names. We have lot of snow but no snowmen. Enjoy!

What a clever idea! Your son did a great job, too. My favorite was the last one (Gracie), lol. ;-)

Very cool!

Nellie said...

That is a LOT of snow! Will it be cold long enough for the snowmen to linger?

I would suppose that you had more than the average fun time doing these! Very cute idea!

Gracie looks a tad bored (or cold?)

When I saw these on Facebook, I wondered who made them all. What a GREAT idea!!! I bet people will be driving by taking pictures. I can't make up my mind which I like best, it will be so sad to see them melt!!

Disgusted Gracie we hate to say but we think they are brilliant. At least you can go pee on them.

I had to laugh at Gracie's obvious opinion, and then while thinking of how Woody would react to all those snow people. Let's just say they wouldn't be snow white for long!

Theresa said...
