I've made 8 of them so far, but I have about 10 more cut out and more then that of the eyes and noses cut out. I love them. I plan to give them out when we visit friends during the holidays, and my friends at work. I think they are the most adorable snowman heads... they do take some time to make, but they are worth it. Maybe I can find a way to alter them for other holidays to. And maybe for next year I can even make enough of the faces to make one of these...
That would look so cute in my snowman house!!!

Here they are, all lit up, sledding on the side of my patio. They light up the whole side of my yard. Mind you I have two blow up snowmen in the attic that I have yet to put in the yard this year as we have been so busy with other things we haven't really had a chance and besides I do leave the snowmen out there long after Christmas anyways! They are pretty cute, aren't they? And just in time, as they say we are getting more snow tomorrow and possibly more on Sunday. We are supposed to finally get our tree Sunday which will be nice, to have all the holiday decorating done. Then I can finish shopping, wrapping, Christmas cards, and finally the Christmas cookies...aren't the holidays fun?!?!

This is our new houseguest!!! He arrived over the weekend with our first snowfall. He is quite large, isn't he? My husband, Dan, has been sneaking snowmen into my collection for years now. They just appear with the rest of the collection like they were always there. Except for this guy. He was too large to sneak in anywhere. He was sitting here at my dining room table Saturday morning like he was always part of the family. And just as he arrived, Sunday morning we were blanketed with our first snowfall. It was beautiful. I adore the snow...hence my love of snowmen...and so my new houseguest has a prize seat at the table. That is until we need it for a family dinner and then that seat belongs to Papa...sorry Buster!!!

Over the years we have been together my husband has surprised me with several snowmen. I just love snowmen!!! I had sooo many snowmen ornaments that I was able to have this skinny primitive tree in my dining room with just snowmen ornaments on it. Notice my snowman angel on the top? I have literally filled every branch of this tree with a snowman! But I love it. Last year he bought me these tiny icicle lights and they go perfect on this skinny tree. Now, my dining room is just about ready to celebrate the holidays. Just need to add my window candles and some greenery and I'm done in here!!! It really is the most wonderful time of the year!!! Now if we could just have some nice weather...maybe a flurry or two. It's time to get the bird feeders out to feed our feathered friends...I love to bird watch in the winter. The colors of their feathers looks so vibrant!!!
