he didn't care that it was triangle shaped

Yesterday—even after being out plowing for 10 hours—JQ wanted to make a snowman for Gideon.

So I bundled the two of us up and we went outside to watch JQ.

It was cold and he was exhausted from being at work since 4 a.m. so we opted for a small snowman.

We don't keep a stock of coal in the house so we made eyes out of mushrooms. Add a mini-carrot nose and we've got ourselves a pint-sized, bug-eyed triangle snowman.

Gideon was less than thrilled to be sitting in the snow. So, the three of us went inside and admired our work through the front window. He loved it.

When we got up this morning and went to the window this is what we saw. The splattered snow parts and small shoe print was a dead giveaway that this was no accident. Savages.

I could not get over it, so I did what any good parent it would do. I went outside in my pajamas and snow boots and fixed our little triangle man the best I could.

I love that picture of Gideon sitting on the snowman, so adorable! But I can't believe someone smashed your little triangle guy. Whatever did he do to them? Damn hooligans.

What a cute story. That is so sweet of JQ to build a snowman while being so tired. I love the pictures. I agree with Christina; Gideon looks so cute bundled up. I bet he didn't like the snow. He was probably thinking, "What in the heck are they making me do out here!"

Oh, and I like the last picture. It looks like the (half of a) snowman is singing, "YMCA". ;)

That is a great picture of Gideon in the snow!!! Do you have any idea who the culprit is? Maybe JQ could plow snow INTO thier driveway?

Why are there such mean people in this world?? Ugh.

Your triangle snowman is ADORABLE and I'm sorry that savages tried to ruin it. Oh and of course Gideon looks way too cute for words sitting with it. :-)

I love it that JQ made a snowman even though he worked all day, and then you going out in your jammies to fix it.

Yall sound like GREAT parents!!

You must live in a rough town, for them to beat up Frosty like that and leave him for dead.

People can be so mean!

(P.S. Love your dad's comment.)

It was me. I took a helicopter to Ohio and stomped your snowman. However, although it seems quite the contrary, I'm not proud. I have this think about Ohioian snowmen. They must die.
