Living in a Snow Globe

Later Saturday morning, the kids recruited their tall and strong Daddy to help construct "Frosty II".
They always name their snowmen "Frosty II".

Not to be confused with "Frosty I", who is the original Frosty, the one remembered fondly in song, and never to be duplicated, apparently.
This version of "Frosty II" didn't last long, due to a flaw in his construction, we suppose, as he was found face down and broken into bits a mere 45 minutes after birth.

Sometime during the next day, a break in the clouds brought some sunshine while it was snowing.
Which made me comment on just how much I love it when there has been a snowfall, then the skies clear and it gets cold enough that the snow doesn't melt and the whole world turns all bright and sparkly, like the inside of a snow globe when its not being shaken.
And that's what I awoke to this morning.
Everything dusted and glittering and sparkly and bright.
A happy infusion of Vitamin D five inches deep.

I have to remind myself it is still Winter and I really missed the snow this year. We did not even have two inches here in Kentucky where it made it to 60 degrees today. Beautiful photos! Angela
