The Snow Beast

"Snowpocalypse 2012" is upon us, resulting in something like 6 inches of snow piling up around our home.  It'd been probably about 6 years since I'd really played in the snow, so while Charlie was napping I indulged my inner elementary schooler and made a snow man just her size.
 After she woke up, had some snuggles and a diaper change, I took her out back to meet her new friend.
 It went well.  (Sarcasm, p.s.)  She freaked if I put her down, so these are my attempts at pictures.
 From above, while she clings for dear life to my leg.
 The horror. 
Sigh...maybe next year.  For now we'll hunker down inside, eating mashed potatos and listening to Wicked...not a bad alternative, really :)

 Admiring the first snow of the season before church

After church, lunch, and a nap, we bundled up and headed out.  Charlie immedietly face planted, but bounced back with minimal whining.

Grandpa came out to join in the fun.

Charlie started to enjoy herself, even if she didn't quite understand what was happening.  PS - look at her mittens.  So cute.
