Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

Well my friends, we awoke to a blanket of fresh snow Christmas morning and it continued to snow all day.   We certainly could have built a snowman outdoors.

But here at the Olson house we decided that it would be fun to build a few indoors on Christmas Eve.


I had participated in this fun snowman building adventure at a Club party a couple weeks earlier.

Wasn't sure what my family would think when I handed them all a sack with 'snowman' building supplies:
a roll of toilet paper
hat
scarf
carrot
black cardstock circles

Tape and glue dots were available to aid in the building.

They are all good sports and merrily went to work.  The model was chosen and then they started to 'roll' with it.  lol!

Of course our youngest son lucked out and got the bag with 'snow woman' supplies.

His son, Jack was having fun wrapping daddy up.  With moms help.


When he was all dressed up the boys didn't quite know what to think.




Our daughter, Karrah had to work a while longer so she wasn't able to help build their snowman, but our youngest daughter, Kylee helped Jayson and Sadie dress Taylor up grand!




Paityn had lots of builders working on her.


And Jordyn's mom and dad were more than happy to keep her under wraps.
Her silly eyes brought back memories of one of our favorite moves,  Goonies.


All in all it was a fun activity with lots of laughs!  

Hope your Christmas was filled with love and laughter!
hugs,
Jann

That may be the only way we build a snowman as there's not a flake of snow to be seen on the coast of Maine?
