This year was a record setting winter in Wisconsin but not in the usual way. Snow falls and accumulation were extremely low and the temperatures were much higher than usual. The kids received a snowman kit for Christmas from Aunt Kristi & Uncle Matthew but only had the opportunity to use it once. Here Hans and a classmate used it in the first snow we had in January. He lasted less than a day before the sun did too much damage for him to stand. We hope that next year we can make some more of his relatives!
