Frosty The Snow(wo)man!

I don't think my kids have ever seen 'proper' snow; I know Xander certainly hasn't. So when a couple of inches of the white stuff dumped itself on us in the early hours, there was a lot of excitement all around! There was even more when Emily's school made it onto that magical list on the radio: 'schools shut due to snow'.

I have never known her get dressed so quick, it should snow every day! So, by 9am we had a couple of very giddy kids out in the back garden:

Of course, the first order of business was to build a snowman, which Emily got started on straight away:

With a bit of help from Daddy (not that he needed much persuaion!):

Xander helped pat down this strange white wet stuff that had appeared in his garden:

Poor Frosty nearly ended up without a nose:

But eventually, Frosty was complete and was renamed Mrs Frosty due to her girly hat and scarf:

And then, what snowy day would complete without the obligatory snowball fight:

Which Xander thought was hilarious:

Anyway, everyone's now back inside, drinking hot chocolate and watching the snow melt. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted!

OMG I'm so jealous of all your snow - not that I'd be venturing out in it. All we've got is piggin' rain :(

hehehe looks like you had as much fun as we did!! We made a 'snow dwarf' though, we got bored of making it after about 30 seconds and so they made him vertically challenged..I worry about my kids y'know!
