If it snows only 1-2 inches as it often does in Eastern North Carolina and the sun immediately comes out to melt all the bounty of snow by the next day (as often it does in Eastern North Carolina) and the best you can do is to make a Mini-Snowman then so be it! Do it. I promise it will bring a big smiles all around. The picture to the left is of my granddaughter Alexis Jo and she was so proud of her Mini-Snowman with the mini-carrot for a nose. Her dad is holding the object of her delight. Good Job Lexi-bug!
