I'm Shocked!!!

We finally got a good sticky snow. I have been waiting ALL winter for this. Every snow we've gotten has been that dry fluffy stuff. And every snowstorm I was disappointed. But this one made my day. Or I should say evening. I went out to shovel around 10:30 pm and knew it was the most perfect snow for a snowman. Well, I couldn't go in and go to bed knowing there was ALL that snow waiting for me!!! I had all the "stuff" in the garage. We trimmed our black walnut tree this fall and there were some perfect branches so I saved them for this day!!! I took pictures last night but they didn't turn out so good, it's difficult to focus a camera in the dark.

When I got up this morning I looked out the window and the snowman was leaning backwards. I quickly got dressed and ran out there to straighten him up. I no more got behind him and he fell over. SO I just HAD to stay out there and make another one. I took pictures of this one too. I'll post them in a little while. After I got the pictures taken I went in to feed the poor kitties who were waiting for me to get back in the house. I wonder what they were thinking when they saw me leave and didn't come back for a while!!! Their little tummies rumbling!! Poor babies. See how important this wet snow was to me??? LOL
Most of the snow melted today. It was pretty while it lasted. And speaking of lasted. This snowman did not make it through the day. But that's ok. At least I got to make a snowman. I have waited since November to do this!!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by,
