Various "Artistic" Endeavors While We Wait Out The Snow
In case you are wondering what this first photo to the left here is, yesterday when Emily and I were exploring our neighborhood on foot, we spotted a sort of ice "stalagmite" about 3 feet high that formed when some good bit of water flowed out of release valve on the side of our building. So we picked it up and carried it to our backyard area to serve as our own lawn art for the winter! Emily was delighted and spent some time decorating it with snow.
Today, it is still visible above the snow and we peek out at it from time to time, as we work on our "paper people party" on the kitchen table. As you can undoubtedly see below, in addition to the dancing princesses and gingerbread boys, there is a gingerbread girl playing an accordion, while a whole fleet of tiny ships sail in the foreground, with their passengers of birds and seals. Oh, yes. And not to be forgotten, notice also the frog posing behind his row of tents!
