I must say that when I wrote about the snowmen I did not expect them to last nearly this long. But I think they are finally dead, or will be tomorrow. Here is all that remains:
Don’t worry Rachel. I still love you, and I wrote you a poem (of sorts). I think it might even be chiastic (if you squint).
Avery’s Mom (and soon someone else’s)
Peerless among women
Sweet (and Steadfast)
Significant other (mine)
Maybe I should stick to Maths.

Yesterday there were several inches of wet snow on the ground, so we thought we should let Avery have some fun outside. She certainly did have fun, and she charmed the old lady next door.
On a lark I decided to make a snowman, and then I made a snowbaby for Avery to play with. She carried it around and tried to make it bigger. She killed one snowbaby, which is okay, but we told her she can’t treat her baby sister that way.
Since I wasn’t cold after making the first snowman (and snowbaby), and we still had plenty of snow I decided to make another parent. We ended up with Mommy, Daddy, and Avery. Also if you look closely you can see that Mommy is pregnant with a little snowfetus.
The next day we noticed that one of our neighbors had added noses to our family, but they had done it on the wrong side! This picture is taken from the back so that Daddy is on the left. He does have eyes though and you’ll notice the fetching mustache as well. And of course you can’t miss the massive aquiline noses on Mommy and Daddy. For some reason the baby doesn’t have a nose.
As I’m sure you also noticed the happy couple is holding hands. It’s a symbol of our undying love for each other. Rachel, I promise to love you for as long as these snowmen hold hands. And maybe even longer!
Update: After two days a fair amount of rain, I no longer am required to love Rachel. Whew! It was really starting to cramp my style.
