What an amazing way to kick off 2011! SNOW! Yes, it really snowed in Los Angeles! It wasn’t just a little dusting, it was a solid 8 hours of snow! The kids were out in force and the snowballs were flying. It was a fantastic day, but what ended up being the very best part for me was the snowman my sons and the neighborhood kids built. It wasn’t huge, but what it lacked for in height it more than made up for in personality. Every kid had a part in its construction. It was great! We were hoping there would be more snow to wake up to in the morning, but instead we woke up to sunshine and wet/muddy lawns. Fortunately “Mr. Frosty” survived, and it became the quest of the neighborhood kids to rebuild him, which meant cruising around the streets with a wagon and boot-legging parts from other falling apart snowmen. While they hunted, Mr. Frosty was shielded by umbrellas. Surprisingly he didn’t melt and by the time the kids came back to the house with more ‘body parts’ he was still in pretty good shape, sans the eyes that had fallen off. After his bionic rebuild he looks even better, and far more fashionable with added accessories! I’m sure he’ll be gone in the morning. Such is life, but I will forever remember this incredible day! Happy New Year everyone!
Now I think I need to start working on some new Snowmen designs! :0)
