Mark the Snowman

It's warmed up to 33 degrees today, so it's perfect weather for making a snowman. Rick and Neil just made this one above. Neil named him Mark. He's the brother of Rex, who was another snowman they made last year. I don't know how they keep track of all their names, but they do.

We got our tree set up last night, so now the house is scattered with clutter and boxes. Today we put up my nativities. I collect them, so it takes a few hours to put them all up. I line all my windows with them. Nichelle and the boys helped, so it went pretty quick today. We still have downstairs to decorate, but at least it's coming along. The ground is too frozen to put our little lighted trees on our walkway, so those might have to wait.

How are you spending your weekend?


  1. Mark is the coolest snowman ever! Obviously, Rick and Neil are experts.

    It sounds like a cozy, familial vibe at your house this weekend. The decorating sounds like a lot of fun.

    I have a cold so I've been laying low, watching a lot of movies. Really enjoying the down time.

  2. Look at that fine snowman! What a great way to decorate your yard!

  3. Now that's a snowMAN - giant guy. I'll have to share some pics of my little wimps from throughout the years. We don't get the snow you all get so our creations aren't quite so cool - in more ways than one. Ours usually melt within a day or two at tops

  4. Wow, look at all the snow! We don't have any yet. They're obviously great snowman builders. How cool to collect nativity scenes. I have one lovely one with the figures glazed with mother of pearl, but that's it.
