In the spirit of doing all things childlike and silly, Matthew and I made a snowman together. Isn't Mr. Redbuttons the most handsome snowman you have seen in years?! We had a blast forming and shaping his body and searching the cabin's yard for appropriate decorations. Matthew found some fantastic twig arms and little red stones perfect for buttons. I added the carrot nose and the pine needle smile, and the scarf (which I took back and then actually felt a little guilty- he looked... cold without it!).
Here he is, all finished and happy:
