Go on a snowman hunt


Snow is starting and accumulation is predicted. School may dismiss early and that means I have to go into school early.
I love the pictures being posted of the snow in the South. Other than the ice and outages, it must be fun dor those that usually don't get snow.
This snowman was carved from wood from a local person that carves Santas and sells them all across the country. I "think" he is still doing this. The arms are sticks and should be longer. One broke so I split the one left for both arms.
Lisa.......I tried to pull your email up to answer your question about the other snowperson. I have a computer that used to be owned by a friend. When I disabled her internet server I can no longer pull up other email address from my blog. So, send me your email and I will find out if the lady still makes those puff balls.
What is a SNOWMAN HUNT?
After a big snowstorm, when the roads clear......I would take the "littles' in the car and drive around looking for snowmen.....snowpeople. It is so much fun. Of course, I would take pictures. We would drive up close and check them out. The kids loved doing this. The pictures make for a really cute scrapbook page as well. So, if you are bored and the roads are clear.....go for a ride. Post your pictures so we can see what you find.
Happy Hunting.......!

The snowman, snowperson hunt sounds like lots of fun. Wish I had thought of something like that when the kids were young and still at home...I will pass the idea on to the grands.

I would have to go far away for a snowman hunt, so I'll have to come here to look at photos! I do love snowmen. They are so cute.

I've never thought to hunt for snowmen, but that sounds like fun! It's coming down pretty hard right now. Hope it's only a few inches.

Debby the envelope came yesterday and I thank you for thinking of me. I was so surprised to received that with the little pin you made and the stamp along with the Alaska stickers. Thanks for thinking of me.

How fun does that sound! Our prediction for snow has passed and not even a flake! I think hot chocolate would be in order after the hunt!

Hello honey
I had to laugh about how your cured the broken arm on the snow man. It seems we think a like. lol
I know you guys have it a lot worse than us but like your post says before this Baby It's Cold Outside. Our 25 this morning at 10am is very unusual and with 80 percent humidity it felt much colder. Oh well I am a sissy with cold weather.
Love you taking your sweeties around looking for snowmen. That would be fun to do.
Thanks for entering my giveaway.
Good luck
Maggie

Now that sounds like a great activity in the snow!!! I'm sure it was a thrill for the kids.
I wanted to thank you for your well wishes. I am doing great now. Still a teeny bit sore, but doing well.
You message was lovely to get.
blessings,
June

Hi Debby! I have been loving your snow memories! So sweet to take your children on hunting expeditions! I would love to send you my starter kit of extra supplies. I think I have your address, and my TSG is headed to the post office. I'll catch her! Always fun to visit! Elizabeth

I CANNOT believe I did not have my name listed as one of your followers. Boy, was that ever a boo-boo which I just now corrected. Now to your post. Not only did we have to wear dresses to school and COLLEGE...I had to wear uniforms with the nuns. Oddly enough, as I look back on it, it really simplified my life. Only if teachers had to wear uniforms. I could just drag out of bed, shower, put on the ugly thing, and off to work I would go. I think that is a good idea FOR ME!
