They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well. This is a slightly threatening idea to an aspiring writer and, come to think of it, seems mildly angry as well. You should probably forget you ever heard it and, while you're at it, consider throwing away your digital camera too. But, in the meantime, please feel free to enjoy the equivalent of 13,000 words of [BIG] snowball making fun! Fair warning: things may have gotten out of hand.
STACKING SNOWBALLS ~ 1/22/12
Last week, after a drought-ish sort of winter, we had our first 'real' snow. It was an AWESOME storm. I was standing at the sliding glass door, watching the boys play, when I noticed my oldest son having some difficulty making a proper snowball. He was getting frustrated, so, being that I'm an Africa-raised snowball-making expert, it only made practical sense for me to venture outdoors and help. I was just being a good parent.
