Artist of the Week: Snow Guard

You would think with all the snow we have been getting that at least one snowman was made and you would be right. Max made at least two,  one of which was in a hidden spot that I saw quite by accident. There may have been more, he likes to make small ones and hide them, a very Max thing to do.

Thus with his snowman building Max is the artist of the week.

The picture of Max was taken Thursday morning last week. I'm not sure what he is thinking of, probably what a huge amount of snow we got and how it hasn't stopped snowing. Regardless, it is a could shot showing his more contemplative side.

Meanwhile the snowman, or rather snow guard, has a far happier seeming pose. Max constructed him while clearing the driveway with Rebecca. Max constructed a wall surrounding his creation so that it appears to be guarding the entrance to the front walkway. It is not a large, at most it was two feet tall, which is again just like Max. He loves making small snowmen, usually 8 inches an under, thus making this a big one for Max. It is hard to see, but the snow guard has a stick by it's right "hand." This gives it the look of being on guard. I like it's cheerful expression. Sadly it is long gone, snow doesn't last very long around here, even if it is on guard.

OK, it's been almost two weeks. Are you all snowed/iced under over there, or are you off someplace warm and sunny on vacation? I may not always comment, but I do always read :) Missing you.

Thanks for asking, we are alive, I just have to jockey for computer time and get motivated.
