Nature Awakens You

Our Bleeding Heart Snowman :)

This snow we’ve been dumped with reminds me of my New York girlhood.


Maybe part of the reason I never made many snowmen was because we were so accustomed to snow, we didn’t appreciate it for what it was πŸ™‚ Anyway, snowman crafting was never my greatest talent, so when I bundled Kobe up and set out to make a snowman, it went about as usual πŸ™‚ I am always glad when a kid helps me so I can at least pretend that a kid built the snowman.

Β  On a whim, I grabbed the red food coloring in hopes of making a valentine snow man. I went a bit wild with it, and afterward realized if I had used an art paintbrush, it would have turned out much neater. Needless to say, we made a heart that immediately began bleeding. It was actually quite appropriate πŸ™‚


By the time Steve came home from work, the head had fallen off, and the whole front was one solid pink snow hump. He was hoping there was not a drive by shooting involved πŸ™‚ (No, that would honestly NOT be funny!)

Since we had SO MUCH snow, Kobe kept getting stuck. Since it was his nap time, he was tired. Since he was tired, he was grouchy. Since he was grouchy, he cried. Since the snow and sun were extremely bright together, it hurt his eyes. I’d say he was doing pretty good at giving me a kiss! πŸ™‚
