Mr. Snowman.

Tom and Alice both LOVED the snow on Friday.

Friday was the day it was almost 60 degrees and all the snow mostly melted away.

But they loved it.

They could play in the snow remains without wearing heavy coats or gloves, and we could build a snowman out of it, and make snowballs that day.

It really was the best.

These kids?

They’re pretty smart.

And then Tom ran off to throw snowballs at trees for about an hour.

While the trees were enjoying that beat-down, a massive love affair took place in front of my eyes.

I give you: Alice + Mr. Snowman…

There was…hand holding.

And the fixing of his outfit…

And sweet nothings whispered into the place where his ear would be…

And then she just threw his hat off and gave him a hug.

The next day he melted and all that was left was the scarf, a carrot that had been nibbled on (Huck), and of course, our dear sweet memories of a love affair ended too soon.

We hope to see you again, Mr. Snowman!

(But maybe sometime next year?  That’d be great! We’re all kind of over it right now.)

Hope y’all have a wonderful, LOVE-filled week!
