Snofu Baby

SNO 9238

Early in the afternoon on Friday, snow started to blanket our little Athens town, which is atypical for the South (thanks, Global Warming, for messing up the weather system). Missy, quickly used the opportunity to take photos of her BLYTHE DOLLS frolicking in the snow, not knowing if it would stick, let alone accumulate...

By Saturday morning, the storm had dumped four inches of fluffy snow (compare that to the 20+ inches of snow Missy's family got in Pittsburgh last week HERE!). Being the Pittsburgh-born-and-bred Northerner that she is, Missy couldn't wait to go outside onto our front yard and build a SNOWMAN. She started by rolling up huge balls of snow, KATAMARI-STYLE, picking up dead leaves and other yard debris along the way...

This is actually the first of several snowmen that Missy ended up building. This one fell down while we were outside talking to our neighbor, Ben. Undeterred, Missy built a brand new one in it's stead (see previous post) and even built a mini one for her Blythe Dolls (post forthcoming)...
