Today was sunny and warm. There used to be a time in my life where 34 degrees was cold. Nebraska has changed that.
All M has been asking to do the past few days is to go outside and play snowballs. She got this from watching Charlie Brown Christmas almost every day for the past month. Remember the scene? All the kids are throwing snowballs trying to knock a tin can off the fence and then Linus uses his blanket to nail it. M thinks this is very cool.
We’ve had a good deal of melting and the snow is really wet. Perfect for making snowballs! We threw them into the snow, at each other and on the ground. We squished them with our feet. We used a cup to make snow bricks and snow castles. We picked tiny icicles off of the car. And most importantly, we made our first snowman. (Snowperson? Snowcreature?)
M insisted we make him a snowdog.
He has an icicle for a tail and sadly has no ears. The snowman seemed happy to have the company, though. Especially since shortly after I was able to convince M to come inside for some hot cocoa. 34 degrees is warm, but not that warm!
