Sunday when we woke up, the sun was out. Well, not exactly when we woke up at the crack of dawn (thank you, Jaxon), but it came out soon. The snow was melting!!! Our church was cancelled due to the weather, so we had a very leisurely morning.
I decided that we had one more shot to get outside and play in the snow. But this time it did not include building a snowman. We decorated him instead!
By the time we got out there, mr. snowman was melting. Poor guy lost his eyes and all but one tooth! At least his nose was still intact!
I pulled out the food coloring, added water and….. we had a color palette to work with! I love how you can see the reflection of the branches in the water!I wasn’t quite sure which instrument would work best, turns out the medicine droppers win hands down!
Super happy boy! He kept saying “this is awesome mom”
An “I love you” original
enjoy the sampling:
Jax was getting thirsty so he took a break for a bite of clean snow…. gross!
We were thinking of cousin Zoe (her dad blogs here)
and of course, I was thinking of Joey:
Once we were done, we were of course freezing. While Jaxon rested and Joey cleaned our carpets, I whipped up some homemade potato soup! Recipe coming soon!
I’m so thankful for my little boy!
