We made our first snowman of the year yesterday! It required almost all the snow in our yard and he does have some unsightly sticks and leaves sticking out of him, but he's pretty cute nonetheless. It does make me slightly sad that we built our last snowman of the year on March 9th, a mere eight months ago, and we're already building another one. This means that we apparently get to enjoy five months of "winter" in Iowa instead of three, which is hugely out of proportion with the other seasons! This also means that long before the snow is gone, we will be very tired of building snowmen! But yesterday, at our house anyway, the snow was welcome, and it was too beautiful and fun to pass up. Here he is. "Our HUUUUGE snowman, just as big as Iain!".
