Oh yeah, it's winter

We woke up this morning and guess what?! It was snowing! How wonderful! It's a winter goddamn wonderland! Yahoo!

Anyway, the kids and Mitch decided to make the best of it and make a snowman. Kira went out first and rolled the bottom ball until it was so big she couldn't move it anymore and needed help.

You can't really tell from this picture, but the ball is way bigger than you think. It is so heavy that most of it is underground, but they had to move it to a better spot so they got into position:

That's Sam and Mitch pushing this enormous ball up hill and that little black spot by their legs is Kira. Her job was "door stop." She was to prevent the ball from rolling back downhill by putting her body in the way and heaving with her legs.

Next they put on the torso ball which must have been hard. I don't know how they did it and I was busy scrubbing the toilet so I didn't get to watch.

Next was the head ball and the finishing touches.

And here's the finished product. Mitch made the snow arm on the right and the kids wanted to make the left one but gave up and just shoved in a branch instead. I like his hair. The stick in the back is his sword. This is a horrible picture because there is too much white. You can't even make out the little tiny snowman on the big snowman's shoulder.
