ever since harper helped to build a snowman at school early this week, she can't stop talking about him. big snowman! i see him? has become a favorite phrase lately. so, what's a mom to do, but build our own little version in our yard. the snow that day wasn't nearly as packable and rollable as it was during our snow day on monday, but we managed to create a pint-size version of her school friend. knowing he'd get lost in the deep snow, we set him on our porch. harper lent a helping hand with the twig hair and filling in the holes with more snow by patting it with her mittens. after we finished, she kissed him adieu and bid him goodnight and went inside.
and then she stared at him out the front door, checking to make sure he wasn't going to move.
