Fun in the snow

Today was a perfect snowy afternoon and hubby & I couldn't just sit around inside.  

The snow is higher than our car in some places!

So, we bundled up & went out with the intent of sliding.

But then we got distracted by our nephew's snow ball maker

and set to work creating a Calvin & Hobbes inspired snow scape.

The snow outside was perfect, packy, snowman snow and it really wasn't that cold outside, I think it was hovering around 1 degree C.

We decided that Snow Sharks are a very dangerous foe that are sorely under represented.

See dangerous.

that poor guy didn't stand a chance

Run snow people, run!

Run for your little snow people lives!

Then hubby wanted to build a big tunnel behind behind the mountain of snow from the plow.

I built a snow staircase to the tunnel.
Can you see the steps?  They even go down the other side too and beside them is a slide!

Isn't it a good tunnel?!

I had to check it out for support buttresses, but it will do.

Now, if you'll excuse me, my neighbour just got an xbox 360 kinect.  I have more playing to do.


  1. That snow shark is scary. Shows where your creepy little minds are at!

  2. Hey, you bought me Calvin and Hobbes books, I blame you ;)

  3. That looks like so much fun! I wish we got snow once in a while around your snow shark. Very creative!

  4. Snow sharks!! I've heard they tear through padded snow boots like there's no tomorrow!

    Those little snow men, women and children all running towards the wall of the house where they'll be trapped!

    The humanity! And then you make your escape through a tunnel. Clever. If you dig long enough you could come through into our backyard!

  5. MMMC: True story, your snow boots would never survive an attack.
    And, the snow people are running toward the door (poorly photographed, I admit) and I will let them in as soon as they reach it ;)
    You will have to come visit some winter with all the young 'uns so they can tunnel through our giant snowbanks.

  6. I love Calvin & Hobbs and your rendition is fabulous.

  7. Thanks Charming's Mama! It was fun to do!

  8. I saw your post at Flower Patch Farmgirl about bravery. Yours was above mine and so I am acting on her challenge to pray for you. I am also a new follower of your blog. I give you credit for playing in the snow. I hate it. I will pray for your spirit as well as your bank account. ;)

  9. Glad you're enjoying the snow! The tunnel is pretty cool and so are the snowmen, but I like the shark the best. Awesome.


Quips & Queries all appreciated!
