Snow Sandman






What do we do in Southern California when we get a hankerin' to play in the snow? We head for the closest thing we have to snow--the sand!

This was our first year making a sand snowman and in my humble opinion, it turned out pretty good. I can brag since I really didn't do anything except collect sea shells. There were lots of friends to help out -which is what made it so much fun. Some In-and-Out on the way home made it the true California experience.

P.S. For those of you who feel sorry for us, that we don't get to play in the snow, and make a REAL snowman, don't worry about us, we'll be okay. Sunny and 75 degrees in December does that to you.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

So cute! I love the sandman! It looks fabulous! I'm jealous. I'd much rather be making sandmen than snowmen!

I prefer sun and sand to snow. Oh how I miss nice weather in the winter! Merry Christmas!

I'd trade ALL of the snow in our yard for a day o the beach! ANYDAY! EVEN CHRISTMAS!
