Frosty the Mini Snowman

When we had our snow day last week the kids were going crazy wanting to make a snowman.

Unfortunately, that day the snow was just too powdery and dry to stick. However, over the next few freakin' butt-cold days the snow actually froze making it much more pliable. So finally, Alex was able to scrape enough snow together to make a snowman.

Frosty, the mini snowman.

With teeny little acorns for eyes and buttons and a little baby carrot for a nose, he's pretty cute.

Almost as cute as these two.


(Anyone notice Jack's pink mittens? Despite the fact that he has several pairs of gloves in a wide array of boy colors, he opted to wear Melody's extra pair of pink mittens. Yes, you don't have to tell me that we've got some issues there...)

Very cute 'mini' snowman!!

Kasey said...

HA-HA! Pink is so his color!

Great snowman- I'm super impressed! we tried to make one too and we ran into the same problem with the whole too powdery and dry thing.

Is the snowman wearing a tire hat? Don't worry about the mittens- he was just being sensitive to his sister. :)

That is so funny! I love Melody's face in the last pic...she looks so proud of herself! And real men can totally wear pink!

Jessica said...

Yea, it looks like y'all got a little more snow than we did. We definitely didn't have enough to build even a mini snowman! Which is so cute, by the way!

No, we are not close to Atlanta. We live in the Memphis area.

I wish we would've thought to drip ours, but it just didn't cross our minds that they may freeze...even after it was all over the news to drip them! ha!

They look so proud!

Hayden would be all about the pink mittens too.

Cute snow man.

Carrie said...

He's almost as cute as those two sweet faces :) Love it! And 'men' can wear pink, too...right? haha!

Bethany said...

He's so cute!!! I love the little bit of snow you got- wish we'd only get that amount.

Rachel said...

That is one scary sense of determination (to make a snowman no matter what!)

And everyone knows pink mittens are better at snowman building, right? :)

Heidi said...

Haven't you heard that pink is the new black?
That is the most adorable mini snowman I've ever seen, but the kidos are by far cuter.
I am such a lazy mother, we have finally had above freezing temps and I still haven't gone out to help my kids make a snowman. One day this week I will have to make a point to do it. Thank you for the inspiration.
