Lots and lots of wet snow today so we made snowmen. The snow was so sticky that the snowballs grew much faster than planned – I started my first ball around the corner of the house and hadn’t even reached the spot where I had planned to stand my snowman before the ball was too heavy to move. The same happened with Ingrid’s ball which was going to be the torso – it turned into the next snowman’s bottom ball instead. We were more careful with the next two balls.

Adrian’s collections of sticks and stones came in unexpectedly handy.
