My just-turned-six-year-old son built these snowmen by himself. The one appears to have taken a softball to the chest – a most unfortunate accident. He’s reacting with a string of drool, which is represented by the stick coming out of his mouth. So my son explained. I’m not sure what the fir bough coming out of the other snowman’s mouth represents…

Wait a minute. Okay, I just asked my son about this. The snowman to the left is actually a snow dog. The fir branch is his nose. Now we are all in the know!

Our freak springtime snow storm in Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley was followed by two sunny, 60-degree days. The warm weather made short work of our five-inches of snow. So, this will be my last snow post for now.

Next I’ll revisit our trip to the Wildlife Safari and post photos I took of “wild” animals.

  1. What an imagination! Personally, I thought the one on the left was the pitcher and the branch was the tobacco or gum he was spitting out of his mouth, since it seems that’s what they all do. I prefer your sons interpretation, especially since it is his art!
