|Our new friend. No-Man. (Andrea doesn't do "S's")|
Guess what? If snow is too cold snowflakes don't stick to each other and it's impossible to make a snowman. Crazy huh? Who would have thought it would get TOO cold for a snowman. Yes, it's been that cold here... well, it was a while ago. :) It's just taken a while to post pictures... I've been a teeny busy with that crazy big move coming up in just five short weeks!
Ever since the snow first hit the ground Andrea had been asking for a "no-man". The only problem was that, with the snow came -15 degrees C, and I learned really, really cold snow doesn't stick together ...like my Canadian husband had said... but now I actually believe him. :)
So Andrea and I were happy to have it warm up enough to actually make a snowman. We rolled and rolled and rolled and she loved it. She was so excited to see the snowballs getting bigger and bigger. She pranced around the yard singing "no-man, no-man, no-man". :)
...and we all know what happened next.
The following day all the snow melted and No-Man's head fell off. Luckily I saw it first and was able to fix him before she saw her new best friend ohne-a-head. I quickly stuck his head back on and shoved the carrot back in. Phew.
...but of course it got warmer and warmer. Then I started wishing I didn't put No-Man right next to the driveway that we walk up every time we enter the house. As No-Man kept getting smaller and smaller, Andrea's tears got bigger and bigger. every. single. time. we walked inside the house.
Now there is no snow left, it's all melted and only a little pile of leaves and twigs are in a pile where No-Man once stood, but every morning Andrea still runs to No-Man's spot ...just in case. :)
