What Do You Do When it Snows?

So we have some snow.  A lot of snow. 

A few days ago we had no snow on the ground and now we have almost two feet.  For a while, the snow had been light and fluffy, which was helpful for shoveling, but not great for playing.  Finally, one night Tom came running into the house.  I'd been napping, and he'd been out shoveling. 

"IT'S SNOWMAN SNOW!" he announced. 

And with that, we raced outside to build our new home's first snowman.

Our snow friend is a little fat bottomed, but maybe if the snow keeps up, we'll have a chance to make another one.  Until then, we'll see how long this one takes to melt!
