TIME: 8:09 AM
PLACE: Front yard
SUBJECT: StellaDella & a very leafy snowman
At 6:30 am, I was awakened by a loud, breathy whisper in my ear of “Mom!!! It snowed!!!!! Can I go outside and make a snowman?” Sure, SD, knock yourself out, just use what little snow there is in the front yard as opposed to the fenced in area where the dog does her business, m’kay? And with that permission given, she went out and created her masterpiece.
