Do You Want To Build A Snowman? #BRUMilestones [+ Giveaway]

I know what you're thinking. Another "Frozen" reference? Really? But I couldn't resist!

This was the scene in our backyard after the storm came in and blanketed everything in a fresh coat of snow. Our older two children and my husband built a giant snowman ... though we didn't have any suitably sized carrots or anything creative for the eyes and buttons.  So, I grabbed some craft foam, a few pipe cleaners, and a pair of scissors!

Everyone was ready to warm up and had already come inside, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to introduce our new snow friend to our little guy! I layered on the snow suit, gloves, hat and coat, so that he could get a proper introduction to his very first snowman. We took a few quick pictures ... then it was back inside to warm up.

It was a quick encounter for him but he was absolutely delighted.  As you can see from the picture above, he was all smiles!

Now, the next big milestone and his last "first" holiday before he turns one, is just a few weeks away. We wanted to commemorate the holiday in a special way, so we made a fun chalkboard plaque with his handprint and footprints last weekend (image below).

I think it's a sweet way to remember his fist Valentine's Day.
