:LAYOUT: One Dirty Snowman

Although I create mostly single page 12x12 layouts these days, I do still occasionally add in a few double page spreads for good measure - especially when I have several 4x6 photos that I want to share.

Winter got REALLY long this year. Usually by the end of March we’re beginning to see the signs of spring, but at least something good came out of all our late season snowstorms - Justin and Kaitlin FINALLY built a snowman together!!

He sure ended up being a dirty old snowman! The previous snow had melted, but the ground was still wet. Then, a very wet, heavy snow came down so when they rolled up the snow, the whole layer right down to the ground came up and all the mud, leaves and dirt with it!

But Kaitlin didn’t care – she was thrilled to just be building a snowman with her dad and cheered him on when it came time to lift up the second ball (which was a bit heavier than daddy expected!).

The weather warmed a bit and 5 short days later all that was left was a tiny mound of snow, a soggy scarf and hat, and his wooden limbs and facial features.
