Snow Magic

Our 6' 4" soldier came home from
boot camp right before Thanksgiving.
(My nephew)
It was a celebration!
We had missed him so much!
He is such an important part of my family & Bo's best friend.
The other day he came over just to play.
He took the boys outside to make a Boman.
But, apparently Bo was too tall & the snow was not sticky,
 so they settled for a Roccoman...
...not quite the same ring to it but cute nevertheless :)
I walked by my window & saw the business outside
& grabbed my camera.
This is FOR A FACT the longest Rocco has ever stood still.  Ever.
And he LOVED it!
I was the crazy woman running out to take some pictures,
and back in to check on Kit.
and in.
Kit and I thought we were the smart ones staying warm inside.
We also thought we were the best looking
& that we could crush them in a singing competition any day. 
Guess that makes us a triple threat. 
BUT the boys outside were pretty cute too.
And before we knew it branches were jammed in for arms
and Roo was sticking on the buttons.
They had turned my boy into a snowman.
There must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found.
Or maybe it was a cousin investing in the lives of my boys.
Either way...
It was magical!
