The Well-Outfitted Snowman

Children standing happily in front of Mr. Snowman

But the toddler sees something vaguely troubling about this snowman.

Could it be the machine gun Mr. Snowman is wielding?

The perp skulks off. (It’s always the mild-mannered ones who surprise you.)


  1. LOLOL!!!!

    Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

  2. FUNNY! Thanks for the laugh!

  3. eldest daughter says:

    I don’t know why, but Mr. Snowman’s right arm looks remarkably like a piece of bacon. Very strange. That’s all.

  4. Halarious.
    Enjoy that lovely snow. Wish we could have at least one snow day out here in California. I miss the seasons so much.

  5. LOL. Your children must have had to use ALL the snow in town to build that guy! A great job, though!!

  6. Mr. Snowman looks like he could use a good exfoliator! Y’all look like you’re having fun!

  7. That’s EXCELLENT! And his right arm DOES look like a piece of bacon.
    We have tons of snow, but it’s not SNOWMAN snow. Too cold!

  8. Hi!
    I was directed to your blog today by one of your faithful readers…a friend of mine. She told me that I would appreciate your writing. She was right. I have enjoyed your writings.
    I am Sherri. I am an Occupational Therapist who set my career aside and started homeschooling last year. My husband, Jeff, and I decided to pull our children out of the public school after the first 6 weeks last year. There are many reasons why we felt convicted to do so, but our main reason was to have more family time. We just hated our children sitting in school all day only to come home to a few more hours…or more…of more school work for homework. By the time they were finally finished with school, it was time for bath and bedtime. We were living for the weekends and holidays. Now, we find life to live in every day. Homeschooling has changed our lives.
    I wanted to introduce myself and tell you that I am enjoying your blog.
    Drop by OurPlace and visit us sometime!

  9. how fun!

  10. Lovely…enjoy the weekend!!!

  11. Well, you clearly have been a better mom today than me (as evidenced in my sad blog post today).
