Let it Snow!

Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we've no place to go
Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!

Yesterday we received over 30 cm of snow! School buses were cancelled and it was perfect snowman making weather. Haakon, Elsa and I took full advantage of the sticky, wet snow.

Here is our snowman! Complete with a thrifted broom I found at ONS for $1 and a Lululemon scarf I got for free last year at their annual warehouse sale! I purchased the snowman making kit in Florida from the Target's Dollar Spot after Christmas last year for 30 cents. They had heaps of them (wonder why??).
Here are some snowman sightings in and around the city of Ottawa.

Love the button mouth!

Great idea to add straw for hair

Reminds me of marshmallows


Found this Snowman blow mold last week at SA for $1.99.

Wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday season!

For more outdoor decorating ideas head over to the Pickled Herring for the Scandinavian 12 Days of Christmas. I'm guest posting today about Nordic Ice Lanterns.
