Building a Snowman
It is so wonderful heading into winter and the Christmas season with a two and a half year old. This year, this season actually means something to her. She wants to play in the snow, decorate our tree and meet Santa. In fact, she keeps asking when Christmas is coming.
Last week, it snowed, not a lot, butt enough to cover everything, and make it a magical time. To see everything covered in a blanket of white was something that I haven't seen in early December, for a long time, it was wonderful.
Alara also thought so, all she wanted to do was play in the snow, throw snow balls and most of all, make a snowman. On Saturday afternoon, Seyfi and her did just that. There wasn't a lot of snow, but there was enough to make a little snowman- the first of the season.
After makeing their snowman- we sat down together with our hot chocolate and cookies, and watched the animated Frosty the Snowman. It was here that Alara learned the fate of snowman (i.e. the melting).
It sure is a good thing that she learned this important life lesson, because, in typical Belgium fashion, it RAINed the next day, and our beautiful white blanket, and our lovely little snowman were washed away... Until the next time.
