Snowman Mickey

Yesterday and this morning, the mitten got hit with a huge snow storm that left us with heavy snow. You know the wet, heavy snow that sticks to your tires? The slushy kind?? That is what we got!
This kind of snow is perfect for snowman making! I have been wanting to make a snowman for about 2 years, but the snow has been terrible!! It hasn't been the packing kind. Every time I go to make a snowman, it doesn't stick, but NOT this TIME!  

I was determined after school yesterday, to get on my snow pants, mittens, hat and make a snowman! I was so excited when the snow stuck as I began to create the bottom half of my snowman! 

Of course, my snowman had to be a Mickey Mouse! He was pretty easy to make one I got the bottom part on. .The hardest part was lifting up the middle and top half of him..

I realized I need to do more weight lifting because my arm muscles aren't as strong as I would like them to be.

Who said adults couldn't have fun??? I had a blast making this guy! 

I was so thrilled to make this snowman and even more thrilled to wake up to a snow day this morning!!!

 Although the cold has been bad for my running, it has allowed my body the rest and recovery it needs. I cannot wait for warm weather ahead, but I sure had a good time making this snowman!

Question: When was the last time you did something kid like???
