Yesterday afternoon, just as Cordelia was waking up from her nap, we got word that my brother, sister-in-law, and mom were on their way over. The purpose of the visit was to make a snowman with Cordelia. She was soooo excited.
Unfortunately the snow wasn't exactly cooperating. I don't think it could have been any more powdery than it was. Ben was not about to let that stand in his way. He pushed on...
Ben and Cordelia desperately trying to make the snow stick. Ben even utilized a spray bottle, to no avail.
Busy at work, Cordelia giving quite a smile to the camera
Sara resorted to drawing a snowman
She probably exhibited the most sense
Cordelia was quite impressed with the completed snowman
My beautiful mother
Cordelia rolling a snowball
My mother and I stood around being super helpful
Cordelia was pleased with the end result, a very tiny snowman
Mostly she was just so happy to spend time with her family
Sara said that I would regret making that face, but I feel only pride.
After the cold snowman making experience we headed indoors for a little hot chocolate.
Cordelia helped me finish up some last minute food gifts and spent some time having private tea parties with her Sara and Ben. A wonderful afternoon!
