More snow pictures

Is there something so wrong with me that when I make a simple typo when I type the word "snow," using the letter "t" in place of the letter "w," it makes me GOL (giggle out loud)?

Oh, sorry...back to the subject at hand.

We took several pictures of the snow that came Saturday. Sound Man and Kiddo had a blast being silly in the snow. Windi and Shadow couldn't have cared less about it, but Jonathan loved to sniff it, getting some of it up his nose in the process.

Look how big my dog is getting! He's looking more and more like a grown up Retriever. It makes me kind of sad. I mean, just seven short months ago this is what he looked like:

WAAAAAHHHH!!!

Oh, sorry. Again. Anyway, Sound Man and Kiddo got out in the front yard and built an awesome snowman.

Being the safety man that he is, of course Mr. Snowman Couldn't be a normal, scarf wearing, boring snowman. No, this dude is ready to jump in and help where needed. Sounds like someone else I know...But I digress. We had to give him a name. Sound Man said Safety Sam. Nah. Too cheesy. My choice, and my idea I might add, was Fluorescent Frosty. Sound Man loved it. And it's not cheesy AT ALL. Hee hee.

They were frozen popsicles by the time they were finished, but it was worth it. I love watching them do stuff together.

Sometime after it got dark, however, Mr. Frosty met his demise. We can't be sure it wasn't the wind, but Sound Man really thinks some punks knocked him over after our curtains were closed. I asked him why someone would do that and his reply was that their dads didn't build one with them when they were nine.

In spite of being sad Kiddo would be upset, that made me smile.

Oh, well, it's gonna be 60 in a couple of days. Mr. Frosty wouldn't have made it anyway.

Morning Heathahlee,

My sick computer is going in the shop this morning....we will wish a speedy recovery for it! I hopped on hubbys laptop before he leaves.

What fun to have all the snow on the weekend. I can't believe all the blog land areas that don't normally get snow that had snow this weekend. The snowman looks great and I know they had a blast building him. Too bad some punks had to ruin it :( I can't believe how big Jonathan is...he does look like a full grown retriever now. Hope you all have a great Monday.

I guess you know you're older when your kids aren't playing in the snow but worried about driving in it! So glad my nephew and grand nephew had a blast! Your puppy pic reminded me of our lab! They're so cute as puppies! When you have boys all the bodily functions become easy game for laughter!!!! Love and God Bless! Aunt Lauralu

Man, that's so sad. Poor Mr. Fluorescent Frosty. That's just another reason you should move down here with us. No snowman vandals here ;)

Too funny. All our snow from Saturday is gone and it's going to be in the 70's this week. I'm looking forward to that. :)

There's nothing wrong with you-- when girls live for a long period of time outnumbered by boys, they start to giggle at things like snot and farts. (I had four brothers!)

LOVE Mr. F.F. He reminds me of the sort of sad, half-snow, half-dirt men we built when I was a kid. There's just never quite enough snow to have a snowman AND snow on the ground! lol...
