the snow man reminded me of my son's first snowman. There wasn't a lot  snow so the snow man was only about a foot high and kind of lop sided. I gave my 3 year old some sticks and rocks and told him to give the snowman eyes and arms. He gave the snowman nipples and a penis.

Hahahahahah Teddy. This was funny, because as an David Pintrest pinner, I love the ideas, especially the refrigerator one, but it never happens for me.
