George the Snowman

Posted by Picasa
Here's George, our Perpetual Snowman! He was able to come out of the freezer and play for a while in the recent snow we had. The snow was too dry and powdery to make a big snowman, so we did the best we could. We keep snow from his head in a bowl in the freezer from year to year. It rained yesterday so one of the children ran outside and shoved his head back into the bowl and stuffed him in the freezer again. He's 8 years old, I think. I know we kept his melted remains through Hurricane Isabel.
Dead thing: I didn't smell it all night last night. Yes, I think it is probably a field mouse. No, I am not sending a cat in through a hole in the wall to go get it. That would be like the Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly. I'd have to send a dog in after the cat and so on... ;-)
Don't forget to lift up prayers for Luke and praise to God for his progress. It looks like he might be going home around the end of the week.
Hebrews 12:1-2 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset [us], and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of [our] faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
