Currently the part of Wisconsin where I live is under a blizzard warning. It has been since 8 pm last night and it stays until midnight tonight.
So naturally, The Hubby who is a semi driver, had to go to work. At 5 am. They told everyone to go home at 6, thankfully. At least he got paid for the hour, right? He does have to work Sunday now but he still has off on Christmas Eve and Day.
Anyway, since there’s a blizzard happening, he&I played in the snow. We’re from WISCONSIN. It’s normal. ((they’re saying 18-24 inches before it’s done.))
I thought you all would like to see my snowmen. I make a snowman every year, but only recently have I taken pictures of them.
2009 we pretty only got snow on Christmas Eve. I started a snowman by myself because I woke up to an empty house. ((i had driven four hours to get there the night before)) They all went Christmas shopping….on Christmas Eve….in another town without telling me or leaving a note. I found out when they got home. I had finished the bottom by then. My little sister helped me and we ended up asking my dad to put the head on cuz we couldn’t really reach. He rolled it up a 2×4.
2010 I was working two jobs, mall open to mall close ((mall holiday hours are crazy….like 7am-11pm with a 45min drive one way)) everyday of the week. This little guy with bobby pins for arms was all I had time for. I even worked Christmas ((I ended up leaving at 10am because I felt like it. and I had a four hour drive home.))
2011 we barley got any packing snow. Plus I had the Bumble so it was more fun throwing/shoveling snow at him, letting him loose, and running around in the soccer field with him. My tiny handstand dude appeared. He has marbles for eyes and part of a Pepsi can for his mouth. His feet came up to my knees.
Their mouths are red food colour & water put in a spray bottle & misted. The eyes are food colour mixed with paint & straight shot at their heads. The Hubby told me to make sure I used X’s so everyone would know they were zombies.
What do you think?
Don’t you wish you had a blizzard too?
oh, and the youngest kid in the neighborhood is in like 6th grade.
The UPS lady laughed when she saw them.
I’m pretty proud.
