Snow Day-Hurray!

We finally got the first real snow of the season and school was cancelled. Up until now, the total accumulation has been less than an inch! The neighborhood kids had a great time with the snow items they hadn't used yet this winter. My daughter built this Upside Down Snowman from an idea posted on Pinterest! It lasted long enough for the pictures and then came tumbling down.
