Perfect packing snow

Snow fun

I've been waiting and waiting for the perfect packing snow all winter. Finally, it fell!

So I borrowed the neighbor kids for sledding, snow-man (and -dog) building, and (their top choice) ornamental snow-cupcake creating. Despite being slightly derailed by a snowball fight, fun was had by all for the cheap price of a carrot (for a snow man) and a brownie (for the kid whose nose was hit by a snowball).

If spring absolutely must come, I'm now ready. I wouldn't mind another few white-outs in the interim though....

I'm so glad you took pictures! I was hoping you'd share your snowman/dog with all of us who haven't got to make one this year :)

By the way, I'd take a hit to the nose with a snowball for one of your brownies too!

Wow you did get much more snow than we did. We had maybe 1/2 an inch. Looks like you had fun with the kids. And brownies yum.

That looks awesome. :) Snow is great when you don't have anywhere to be, and when it's just the right type of snow it's even better!
