Winter's here!

Today it snowed.
Although it did give our kids a thrill first thing Saturday morning!!
And I think we may have won the Evergreen Snowman contest again :) We have a contest on our street running between about 5 or 6 homes. First house to get the first snowman up during the first snowman wins. Sometime before Christmas we have a little hotchocolate party with just these homes and the winning family gets to take home a little snowman Christmas ornament for their tree. The box gets labeled with a Sharpie to commemorate the win. This year, it'll say: Schellenberg - 2009!

Ok, maybe it's more of a blob, than a snowman (the snow's not sticky). In fact, the kids have nicknamed it Blob the Tomato because of the plastic eyes I made for it.
