A Snowy Adventure

We’ve had ourselves a bit of a snowy adventure this week…what with all the snow and being trapped indoors.
Little Z was completely fascinated at first and was completely persistent on “go outside, go outside, go outside, go outside….etc”.

He wasn’t quite sure what to do at first and stood very still in the snow for a while and then eventually got stuck in wanting me to make snowballs for him that he then threw at me. Which is always nice. He spent a bit of time helping me make a snowman but then declared “it’s collllld!!!” and then retreated back into the warmth and watched me through the window slaving away finishing the snowman off.

A Snowy Adevnture

It took me the best part of the day to finish the not at all scary looking snowman off. We still haven’t named him!

    What lovely pictures 🙂 It is great to get out in the snow. Your snowman is really cool. (See what I did there?)

    Sounds like me! My Boys watched from the back door whilst I finished their snowman.
    You have cool snowman there, you should call him ‘Mr Dude’ x

    Haha Iyla wasn’t really sure what to do either but got the hang of it after I picked up some snow and threw it at Dad2BabyInsomniac 😉 we didn’t actually make a snowman which was rather rubbish of us, yours is very impressive though! X

    Snow is perfect for a spot of adventure! 😉

    Why does it take so long to build these things in the snow?

    • Notmyyearoff January 26, 2013 / 10:46 pm

      I know!!!

    • Notmyyearoff January 26, 2013 / 10:45 pm

    What a great snowman! We didn’t get enough snow to make one like that!

  9. Suzanne January 23, 2013 / 12:07 pm

    Your snowman is looking pretty cool! So lovely when they experience their first real snowy aventure!

  10. Charly Dove January 23, 2013 / 1:23 pm

    Love the expression on that snowman’s face!

    • Notmyyearoff January 26, 2013 / 10:43 pm

      🙂 people kept telling me he looked scary!

    • Notmyyearoff January 26, 2013 / 10:44 pm

      We’ll have to rescue the shades soon I think!

  12. fivegoblogging January 23, 2013 / 7:52 pm

    I love a garden adventure 🙂

  13. A Patchwork Life January 23, 2013 / 7:58 pm

    Great to see the new wellies in action 🙂 Lovely photos. My kids are also really good at starting snowmen, and rubbish at finishing them!

    • Notmyyearoff January 26, 2013 / 10:41 pm

      He’s used them loads this week!

  14. The Fool January 23, 2013 / 8:55 pm

    We had the same with Matilda, once she worked out what it was we got ‘snoo, shoo, snoo’ 🙂

    • Notmyyearoff January 26, 2013 / 10:40 pm

      🙂 that’s really cute! Hope she had fun in it!

  15. HelpfulMum January 23, 2013 / 9:20 pm

    Love your snowman! He looks very cool. Looks like you had a brilliant time in the snow.

  16. Mags (Mummy's Space) January 24, 2013 / 9:08 am

    Fab pictures – very cool (no pun intended) looking snowman with his shades 🙂 x

    • Notmyyearoff January 26, 2013 / 10:39 pm

      Thanks. 🙂

  17. Penny Roach January 25, 2013 / 4:48 am

    Looks like you had a fabulous time. I’m so jealous…..mid January and no snow all winter in Chicago. 🙁

    • Notmyyearoff January 26, 2013 / 10:38 pm

      Maybe it’ll work it’s way over to you soon hopefully 🙂

  18. older mum in a muddle January 25, 2013 / 7:51 am

    Great pictures – your snowman is sooooooo cool!!!! Is there any of him left?

    • Notmyyearoff January 26, 2013 / 10:38 pm

      His head fell off today, 🙁 I think the coolness may be ending

  19. Mummypinkwellies January 25, 2013 / 8:20 am

    Popped over from the lovely Mummy’s Little Monkey. Fab snowman, loving his sunglasses 🙂 x

    • Notmyyearoff January 26, 2013 / 10:36 pm

      Haha is it the scarf?

  21. Damson Lane January 25, 2013 / 8:04 pm

    If we get more snow tonight I am definitely putting shades on a snowman tomorrow! Lovely to find your blog from Blow Your Own Blog Horn linky x

    • Notmyyearoff January 26, 2013 / 10:27 pm

      I hope you did 🙂

  22. Susan January 26, 2013 / 12:54 am

    it must be such a strange experience for a little one. There is a delicious irony in putting sunglasses on your snowman. Great work

  23. Nikki Thomas January 26, 2013 / 6:24 am

    That is a very ‘cool’ looking snowman! It has been great for the kids, but I’m quite glad that it is going now.

    • Notmyyearoff January 26, 2013 / 10:26 pm

      Me too!! I hate the icy roads more than anything

  24. wendy January 26, 2013 / 7:54 am

    fab photos, it looks like you had a lot of snow xx

    • Notmyyearoff January 26, 2013 / 10:25 pm

      We did, although I think it’s going to start melting soon.

  25. jenny paulin January 26, 2013 / 8:02 am

    your snowman is the coolest (lol) snowman i have seen so far wearing his shades lol – you did well to make it all yourself too. glad you both had some snowy fun x

    • Notmyyearoff January 26, 2013 / 10:25 pm

      Ahhh thank you 🙂

  26. Coombemill - Fiona January 26, 2013 / 9:12 am

    Loving the shades on the snow man. If we ever have snow then I am copying your idea! Thanks for linking up.

    • Notmyyearoff January 26, 2013 / 10:24 pm

      Ahh I hope you do get some soon 🙂

  27. mummy2five January 26, 2013 / 11:58 am

    Was the snow a little too bright for Mr Snowman? Great pictures.

    • Notmyyearoff January 26, 2013 / 10:24 pm

      Hehe we had no coal for the eyes but we did have a free pair of 3D specs 🙂

  28. OneDad3Girls January 26, 2013 / 1:19 pm

    Haha liking the look of the Blues Brothers’ snowman.

    • Notmyyearoff January 26, 2013 / 10:23 pm

      Ha! I never thought of that!

  29. Kate January 26, 2013 / 8:19 pm

    Your little lad is a genius; stay in the warm and watch mummy do the hard work! He’ll go far 🙂

    Stopping by from BYOB link up, lovely to “meet” you!

      Hehe I’m starting to think that myself!

  30. TheBoyandMe January 26, 2013 / 8:37 pm

    Aww, bless him! Snow is a weird thing for littlies; covering their recognisable world with a blanket of white. How come it took you a day, did you not roll a ball of snow?
