The Life and Death of a Giant Snowman
Published on Thursday, March 5, 2015 by

My children have the chance to build a snowman about once every two years.  And on the rare occasion we get several inches, all of the guys go out to build a giant snowman.

This year with a sinus, ear and chest infection, I stumbled outside to take pictures of the “Building of the Giant Snowman.”  I couldn’t imagine how they would get the giant heavy snow balls on top of each other.  Now… I know!

The base is ready.

A first attempt is made to lift the body.

When at first you don’t succeed, come up with a Plan B.  Their Plan B was to use a skateboard ramp to roll the body on to the base.

Every giant renegade snowman needs a face mask.  The boys used a camo dog scarf I found in the road.snowman nose
