Eli, Daddy and Frosty Snowmen...

Eli has been waiting so patiently this winter to make a snowman. It seemed like whenever it would snow it just wasn't the right kind for a snowman. He watched Frosty the Snowman several times over the holidays and was convinced that we could build a snowman who would come to life and walk around with him. Finally, we had a wet snow, but we didn't get out in time. It got so cold that the snow wouldn't pack very well. We still took Eli out, but these little wee snowpeople were the best we could muster...the snow just wouldn't stay together. But here they are, the first Frosty Snowmen of the year as Eli would call them. Ours don't have any hats, so they didn't walk around.

A few weeks ago my DH promised the papaya he would help her build a snowman. Unfortunately the snow was too cold & dry. But he would not be deterred. He was a man possessed. A few hours later, with our yard having been thoroughly sprayed down with the hose papaya got her snowman.

The wee little snowmen are adorable! I love the heart on the front. We are having the same problem with getting just the right snow to go out and play. We are getting so much ice/sleet and such. It looks like snow and Ella is begging us to go out to make snowballs, but it has been mostly icy stuff so far. I am sure we will see some snowball snow soon!

Cute snowmen. Maybe you'll have more opportunities to build some more? Expand the "family".

Frosty needs to go melt into a puddle somewhere. If I have to watch that movie ONE MORE TIME with S&D I'm gonna do some damage with a carrot!

Those are gnome size and cute though.

It's official you're Norm. I didn't say Normal, just Norm.
