After hours

Liam is not letting the fact that we don't get home til after dark most nights stop him. No, sirree. Tonight he had his swimming lesson, then came home for dinner, and then even the frigid temps and darkness didn't stop him - he had two important tasks to do.
First, he wanted to build a snowman... (yes, that is a celery stalk for the nose and dried cherries for everything else; we are out of carrots and don't usually keep coal in the house); and then he had to get his daily dose of shoveling in.
The snow is incredibly light and fluffy, which makes it perfect for pint-sized shoveling, but the snowman collapsed into a pile of powder right after I snapped this pic.
