our day in the snow

The conditions were perfect for building snowmen today, so after lunch and naptime, we all headed out back and went to work. River followed us around as Thom and I rolled three little balls of snow into three very sizable snowman parts. River kept falling into the foot high drifts, and every few seconds we'd hear, "Stuck! Stuck!" and have to go pry him loose. The going was slow, but the effort worth it in the end. We made the face from a lemon, a parsnip, and a handful of blueberries. It's been over ten years (perhaps 20) since I last made a snowman - a fact that is just astonishing to me. All in all, it was a pretty perfect afternoon.
