Our Canadian Snowman

Campbell really hates the cold and everything that has anything to do with it: coats, hats, boots, mittens, you get the idea. So, while he was taking a nap we thought we would get out and make ourselves a snowpal.  It is so cold the snow won't pack so we made more of a snowpile than a traditional snowman.  Then we dressed him up with milk caps for the eyes, a carrot nose, straw for a mouth and the top of our bird house for a hat. Logan's favorite part was using the water bottle to make rosy cheeks. 


Excuse the hat hair.




It is amazing how much fun food coloring in a water bottle can be in the snow!




Unfortunately our snowman, I mean pile, lived a short life and then he died.  It was a gory mess. 
But seriously this is Canada and he will be in our backyard until May atleast.
