Perhaps you’ve grown up thinking of snow as light and feathery. The kind of thing that drifts from the sky, breezes around a bit, then settles in such a way that heroes in a few winter-themed action movies or Christmas flicks could use it to break a particularly bad fall.
This really isn’t that kind of snow.
If someone skied Â through this snowman, they would beÂ effed up beyond easy recovery. A kid casually pushing this snowbeing over on a friend–if they could, I have my doubts–would be short a friend, and there would be little or no forced hollywood laughter, mostly a visit to the ER and some therapy for recurring yuletide flashbacks.
Cute scarf, though.

Wise Men Still Seek Him.

Poor Shepherd. Nobody told her. I mean, even MARY wears sunglasses when she changes the Baby’s swaddling (manna, if you’re curious, but no-one takes him up on it).

Cement snow man would make an excellent door stop, toe stubber.
I want to buy that poor shepherd and glue googly eyes on her. Actually I need to get a nativity set and enhance it with googly eyes! Another craft project for next Christmas! You’re posts are inspiring!
Whoops, I wish I could edit that. I meant to write Your posts are inspirational!
