Day Old Snowman

They built him in a hurry because they knew we were going to have another warm snap. It's been the oddest winter here, just dustings of snow with only one medium-sized dumping. Jacky, our snowman friend, named by Oliver, lived for just a day and then he melted away. And so we wait for more of that white, fluffy goodness. I just know it's coming.

The Family Gathers 'Round
