Warming up

"Spring beckons! All things to the call respond!" (Ambrose Bierce)

Check out the snowman that Gabe and I made just three days ago! You can tell that the world is warming up, even in good ol' Wisconsin! My favorite part of this photo, (which is kind of hard to see) is the little pile of charcoal briquettes at the bottom of the snowman. One by one he lost them as the days went by ... an eye here, a nose there -- half a mouth! PLOP! Into the snow! Until finally one day, we pulled up in front of our house and Gabe gasped "MOM! The snowman's HEAD fell off!!" :)

Here is a shot of Asher playing with his favorite floor toy. The toys spin and play music when he bats at them. He considers it his mission to STOP them from spinning by grabbing onto them as tightly as possible, making the toy click and whir as it continues to try to move. He's such a strong little guy!

Awwwww.... poor Frosty.... but your text would make a great start to a kid's book.... something like Spring for Frosty or something! A fantasy about where the snowman can travel... via snowmelt and then rematerialize in a colder place or time... hmmmmm?
