White Christmas?

So its days before Christmas and here in Michigan we haven't had any significant snowfall. A part of me loves this, because i dont have to deal with the horrible roads and such, but the inner 10 year old version of me really wants it to snow for Christmas! Turns out Grey really wants it to snow too. Any time the mention of snow is heard, he immediately brings up the fact that he wants to make a snowman. We both repeatedly explain that there isn't enough snow outside to make a snowman, it needs to snow more...he's not buying it. So this past weekend we got the smallest amount of snow and Grey convinced us it was time to venture out and make a snowman.

And so it began, the clothes, the braces, the snowpants, the long sleeve shirt, the jacket, the hat, the gloves, the boots...i recall Leigh saying something like, "you better stay out there for at least 2 hours!"

Heres Leigh, getting him ready.

Ready to Go!

As you can see there wasn't much snow...at all. :) But we scrounged up as much snow as we could and made a snowman!

Here we are just adding some final touches (arms) to the snowman. So we didn't stay out the full 2 hours as Leigh had hoped, however the 2 of us sure had a great time!

Oh and someones getting excited about Christmas!

Love to all,
and a Merry Christmas from Andy, Leigh and Grey

I want snow too! That was the one perk of living in Michigan. Snow at Christmas! It can melt immediately after Christmas, though... I'd be ok with that!

WE WANT SNOW!!!! last night the biggest flakes started to fall and they didn't stick! Wait till Grey sees "the big puppy" in the white stuff - he loves it!

My girls have been aching for snow as well! Rachel has made two snowmen that look just like Grey's. Kids are persistent! :)
