Once There Was a Snowman...or Two

Yesterday we woke up to a little more snow, though it still wasn't much. But we were able to get outside and play with some friends, and David even successfully built his first snowman (that he can remember). Don't judge...he's from California!

The first thing Molly hit when we were outside was our neighbor's sledding tube. Molly thought it was great fun getting pulled around everywhere.
By the time we got outside, our neighbors were finishing up their own snowman, and Molly quickly joined in helping them. Her "helping" consisted of adding little snowballs around the middle, and on the top. We lovingly call it the Mickey Mouse Snowman. Molly had a lot of fun with her friend Lydia.Off to make some snow angels...Lydia helped teach Molly how to do it.
And of course, once David saw Mike and Heather's awesome snowman, he had to show us how he could make one, but first he quietly leaned in and asked me "Kim, how do you make a snowman?" I gave him the sound advice of "Gather some snow and start rolling!"
Once again, Lydia and Molly were a big help!
I can't take any credit for the snowman, except for maybe the nose, eyes and mouth, but we had to get a family picture (with a little friend in the background). Thanks to our neighbors who helped David with the other finishing touches.
More fun with the sledding tube.

We're so lucky to live next to so many members of our ward, and such great people to call friends. It makes moments like this so much fun, and worth remembering!

Sorry about little Evan ruining your family picture! I love the snowman and I am sad that the snow is already melting. I took two cute pictures of Molly... I'll have to send them over to you.

David did a great job with the snowman! I hope it will snow some more for you all.
