Determination

Cindy is breaking the rules a little with Show and Tell Friday this week, so I am too. I'm such a follower sometimes (technically maybe this counts as showing my garden since I live in Michigan and I have no garden in the winter, just yard).

We finally got some significant snow.

It's been a much different winter than last winter was.

My kids have decided to move up from snowman building this year.

Maybe they just feel like they've acclimated and should move even further north to Alaska.

The girls went out and did a lot of work to keep that side from falling in, but it did anyway. They had a hole down to the bottom three rows.

They built it back up. This is how they packed the plastic boxes tight for the 'bricks.'

Here it is following the recovery work.

And here it is the following night after a day with the high temperature slightly above freezing and the sun shining on it.

It survived the night. We expected it to go down.

This is what happened with a high of 39 on Thursday.


39!

What a fun time! Yup, it's getting warmer here in michigan. However, I must admit, I enjoyed the snow we got a few days ago. It was so pretty.

Very nice igloo. Next time tell them to sprinkle it with water in the late afternoon and it will freeze overnight. That way it takes it a lot longer to melt.

Blessings,
Mary
