Snowmen of 2010

On the south side of St Thomas, Ontario is a short cul de sac. Mostly mid 70's ranch style brick houses.... a quiet place... A nice neighborhood to raise a family in safety and comfort....

Imagine my horror to discover that the notorious Snow Family had moved in?
I mean sure... I've read about them in the newspapers... who hasn't? 
But to meet them in person? 

What's the neighborhood coming to! 

Call 911! Call the mounties! Call Somebody would you?

This was the meanest looking one. See? You can't even see his eyes!

Look! He's got that hat pulled way down over his eyes! 
Suspicious, don't you think?

The mother of the bunch is quite a piece too!

Is this a new trend in head gear or does she think this is summer?


Do I have to go shopping now to keep up? 

And then the child... Oh! The poor little thing!

So bow legged! Maybe they simply couldn't afford braces?

At least he has a muffler against the cold!

Hey Dick! Call the rental place for a steam cleaner and let's clean up this neighborhood!

On a more serious note: 

If any one wonders why I love and feature snowmen as I do?
They are sculpture. Pure forms of expression. 
And many of these snow people are the first attempts at sculpture by a child.

They are so wonderful and expressive and I love them all!

Someone was very creative with the family there for sure. Even using the dried flowers to cloth them. I love it. Thanks for sharing the SMILES today!
