MORE Snow Pictures

Okay, Okay, I know that I have posted alot of snow posts this winter, but this one is especially amazing. Bennett built this snowman by himself! I showed him how to make a snowball and then roll it around to make it bigger. He made the biggest ball, the base, by filling up a really big red bucket, like a sand castle, and turning it over. He then made the middle and the head with the rolling method. The middle one was so heavy that I had to come out to put it on the base for him. He couldn't get rocks or a carrot to stick into the snow for the face, the snow was really dry, but he was pretty proud of himself.

Bennett rolling his snowball, and Rachel rolling the bucket instead of the snowball. I don't think she really got what he was doing.

Inserting appendages.

Bennett and his snowman buddy.

Every snowman needs a sword, at least every snowman built by a four year old BOY.

Rachel asked Bennett to build her a snowman, but he built her a snowdog instead. I think it looks like a gremlin or an ewok. They lovingly referred to it as the snowdog though, probably because of the ears.
