Snow aliens, snowwoman, fun in the snow!

 Felix helped me begin to build a snowman. Well, he was more moral support than anything!

He's more like the stupidvisors that stand around
for moral support!

Up to his armpits in snow!
See? Stupidvisor cheering me on!

Buster is hopeless. He took off to sit on the fence looking for mice friends.

I was disappointed with my attempts yesterday, the snow is very heavy and I made the balls too big! (I know there is a crude joke there - I won't make it!)

Real snowball snow!
Not to give up.

I went out again today, and sliced the snowball on the ground in half with my dad's saw. That meant I could just barely lift it up top in two lifts!

It was -10 C. last night and no longer snowball snow today!

I'm used to hauling the 40kg bags of deer food out of the trunk, so goodness knows how heavy the snow was when warmer and wetter yesterday- if I couldn't lift it!
Frosty and her deer friend, Olive!
And, yes, Olive, the other reindeer,
looked like a sheep with snow on her. I cleaned her off.

I gave her a paint job today, and feel quite creative!
You can see my Giraffalope in the background.

I was missing my grandkids in Bala, Muskoka, where we used to live.

This snow alien I made on the ice. Fittingly she had a life jacket on!

Clever snow people. I have never thought of painting on some colour. I LIKE that idea. :)

You are very creative with snow! I like Frosty and the snow alien. Like in any other form of craft, 'practice makes perfect'.
Felix and Buster are cute, and it's nice to have them around.
