I'd ask for one too but I'm not ready to see snow yet. We had the first few flakes today but the leaves are still falling so we have a few more weeks before real snow.
Very fun and clever.

I LOVE your portable snowman! I sit here smiling and laughing. Thank you for sharing him. Is he a him? I want one, too. Does he need a friend over here? I can make him a friend.... In fact I am going to e-mail him to some friends and make him a friend!
Love B

Not enough snow down here in Ann Arbor to make one of these yet!

I came up with the "portable snowman" idea, but it was actually my daughter who came up with most of the "reasons".
Betsy: Thanks for sharing it with others! Yes, I say "it" -- but if you want it to be a "him" that's fine. That's another good reason to have a portable snowman: They can be whatever you want them to be. If you do make a friend for our little snowman, don't forget to take pictures and show us.
Ours is melting a little, but still pretty much intact. Hayley put it on our front porch, and -- so far -- our dog hasn't discovered it. If she does, it won't last long. Ari LOVES playing with snowballs, and three of them put together would be all the more fun for her.
