A Snowman for Grandpa...


On the day after Thanksgiving, we decided to make a snowman so that Grandpa could look out of his window and see it and smile after we were gone. Grandpa is a widower and lives alone, so we wanted him to have something he could see to remind him that we love him.

Eli, Mommy and Daddy made the snowman together, the snow was perfect and it was a lot of fun. Eli donated his hat, scarf and gloves to add the finishing touches.

Later that night after Grandpa got home from work, he called to tell us we had left one of our kids in his backyard...too funny!

Oh!!! Snow!! Would you believe,.. I have NEVER made a snowman?! Snow Angel.. YES! & I loved it! We just don't ever get any snow.. & if we do.. it's just a messy muck & not enough to stick to the ground.
Love the pictures!

That is the sweetest little snowman and the idea that it brings a smile to Grandpa's face is the best. Nice that he can look out his window and see the love..

Love the snowman! I am so jealous. We NEVER get snow in Mississippi. Enjoy it! Too funny about what your grandpa said. I am sure he enjoyed it though.

Love the snowman. The last one we built was barely 1 foot tall...just not the same amount of snow here. What a sweet gesture for Grandpa!
