Xander and Mary started at 9 am or so. Two little snow angels, they lay on their backs and compacted the snow in a large circle. Using our weeding buckets from the side of the house they filled and packed and carefully created the base of an igloo.
Amazingly, Mary is the only one who worked from start to finish. She did go in several times however to change out her sopping wet snow pants and mittens. Shh, don’t tell anyone you saw Mary wearing boy pants.
Victory! As Stefan said on seeing photos, “It’s the igloo I always dreamed of building.” We’ll build another one and have wars or maybe tea parties. You never know.
Come on over. We have a tarp on the floor, buckets for chairs and hot chocolate any time.
