We have wanted to make a snowman this year but have not been able to get out during the "right" kind of snow. Last week when we got about 6 inches, we tried to go out that very first day, hoping it would be good for building a snowman. It was not wet enough and we were only able to pat together a little snow mound. B had been wanting to use an ice cream cone for a nose all winter, and we could hardly even get it to stay stuck in the snow. I'm done with winter though, so if this is all we get for a snowman this year, it is fine with me!
