There's A New Kid In Town!!

The Wonderful Neighbor children came and built a new snowman near my other snowman. They decided to build a "Stranger In The Woods" snowman. If you have never seen this short delightful video you will love it. It is also out in book form. Both the movie and the book have really wonderful nature photography. We have found that children of all ages love the movie. It really seems to tickle and delight the smaller children and keep their attention. There are links below to for the movie and the book and even a jigsaw puzzle. Of course, if you use those links, I get credit. :)

Here are 3 of the 4 builders of snowpeople!! The fourth got cold and went home. :)

Here is the snow man with his hat full of bird food.

He also has some bird food on the front of him. He is a bit messy with his food. :)

Here you see him up close and personal. He has several places with bird food on him and then there are pine cones with peanut butter at his feet. If no squirrels come quickly, these will probably be cleaned off by dogs or a cat. :)

They also found this in the dog's water bowl. It froze just like a bowl.

It looks like it worked!!! The birds are loving it!!

I loved the snowman--and the pics of the birds enjoying their snowman feast! LOL

What a cute snowman! Neat pictures. I'm sorry to hear about the little girl - I'm praying for a miracle.
