With only 11 days left in the Countdown to Christmas, I hope you’re staying warm & dry.
My girls love the snow—they love to see it, and they love to play in it. They even love to shovel it. Which is lucky for our family, because I? Am not a fan of the outdoors. Especially when it’s cold and wet.
Every year, I swear it will be different. This winter, I’ll help them build a real snowman. I’m so determined to get out of my comfort zone, and out in the snow, that I actually put it on my 40×40 list. Yet, each time they play in the snow, I wait inside with the hot cocoa or hide behind my camera, snapping pictures of their adorably pitiful attempts at Frosty.
Yesterday, my girls were thrilled to wake up to a snow day. Yet, I once again avoided the cold & wet. We spent the afternoon at the Eiteljorg—taking advantage of 12 Free Days of Indy Christmas to see the Jingle Rails exhibit I’ve heard so much about. The trains & landmark replicas are amazing, but I’m left feeling a little guilty about skipping the snowman.
So, we’ll build snowmen later this week—and I’ll still never have to leave the warm house. We build snowmen out of styrofoam balls. We decorate marshmallow snowmen. I’ve even made a snowmen cheese ball. Our favorites are the edible ones, of course—I think we’ll try Renae’s snow globe treats next.
All of these snowmen are a lot of fun to create, and instead of waiting for your hard work to melt in the sun, you get to eat yummy treats!
