After the sunshine

came the snow. I couldn't believe it when we woke up to an inch or two of the white stuff on the ground yesterday. Benjamin was overjoyed, and had a few minutes before school to start on his snowman. This is the first good snowman snow we have had, everything up to now has been too powdery for packing.

Frédéric helped with the assembly.

And when he got home from school, I helped him with the head, arms and face. The snowman was a pretty good size for the small amount of snow we got!

Noah admired our work, and I think he was contemplating knocking it all down here.

Sadly, the snowman was slightly unbalanced and thus met an untimely demise when the snow began to melt. Reminds me of some of the Calvin & Hobbes comics, except of course that this didn't happen on purpose.
