Happy Snow Day!

So, we in the DC subs are in the middle of a winter storm ...B's school was closed today,  and it probably will be tomorrow as well.  I decided to work from home, which basically means taking a vacation day, but checking email and being available for anything that comes up that I can handle over my work laptop and a remote server.

The early snow was the perfect snowball/snowman snow.  We built this guy in record time!  Not sure what B was going to use his pool toy for?  That's my cool chenille hat on the snowman's head...I forgot the scarf.  Rocks for eyes, half-used carrot for a nose and for a mouth...holly berries!  Those things wouldn't stay in...I kept having to add fresh snow around them!

He is a bit leafy and dirty, as there wasn't much in the back yard when we built him, but it is really coming down now...

A few hours later, he was playing on the back porch...

Wow, I love this face!

Look at that face...wish I still had that outlook on a "snowed-in" day!  Instead of worrying about what is not getting done, all he is thinking about is the "here and now moment".
