Our pathetic excuse for a snow...

Every time we get this little hint of winter, Chowder starts looking for jobs back up north. Look out Canada! He's focusing his sights on Ottawa. or Buffalo. or Vermont. or...

Here's our dinky snowman.





And you know, I can take the occasional stolen car. The periodic smashed out window. Even the random mugging. But today when we got home 2 hours after building our snowman, some little buttholes had knocked it down. I can't begin to tell you how this filled me with the worst kind of rage. My kids were crushed. We are building another one...in the fenced in backyard.

Ok you HAVE to come to Buffalo. i have lived here/there my entire life, and we have snow every winter, i remember making IGLOO's when i was young. We are in the middle of a snow storm right now, btw this AM and tomorrow AM we should have about 15-20 inches on the groud. Should be goos snowman weather for my little ones.

How rude of them to knock over your snowman! I hope the new one lasts longer.

BTW, you've got an extra little one in that picture!

That sucks someone killed Snowie. I hope you made an even better one out back. Great photo..too bad skaterboy wasn't in the picture, that could have been your Christmas card.

Very nice snowman...very cute kids!

I'm late on this but I assume you'll get a notice of my comment? LOL at the rubber boots (especially the beautiful lime green!). I guess it's not too cold where you are. If you decide to come to Ottawa, we'll give you a warm welcome. Or maybe a chilly one if you come in winter, LOL. ;)
I posted a few new pictures and videos - some of our recent snow dump to make you envious...
