It snowed all day today. The kids were so excited. They asked me to watch Frosty the snowman with them in between conference. After we watched Frosty. Jacob called Papa Reuel on his own. He begged him to PLLLEEEAAASSSEEE come make a snowman with him. I was working on the rag quilt for the baby when all of a sudden I didn't feel so good. I went to lay down. To my surprise Jake came and took a nap with me. We must have been sleeping real good, because we didn't hear the phone or the door. Marli was sleeping in the living room. She came in all excited. Papa Reuel is out in the front yard doing something. I was like no way. So we got up and opened the front door. Sure enough Grandpa came all the way out to our house to make a snowman with Jake. Jake was like just a second I'll be right out. I have never seen him get dressed so fast in all my life.
When we lived on Circle S Grandpa Reuel made a snowman with Jaxon. He always said he was going to make a bigger one with Jax. They never had that opportunity. I was so touched that Grandpa was inspired to do this with Jake. It meant the world to my little guy. Grandpa you are the best. I appreciate you taking the time to come out and spend this time with these kids. They needed this so much. I'm sure Grandpa had a million things to do after conference before Priesthood meeting. He didn't even think about anything, but making Jakey's wish come true.
Jake told me when we were laying down for our nap..."When I wake up Grandpa Reuel will come make a snowman with me"! I didn't say anything. I never thought Jake would be so right.
Jake thought it was just as much fun throwing snowballs as making the snowman. He would get a little too excited when he would throw the snowballs at everyone. He was having the best time ever.
Marli wanted a snow dog. After they made this humongous snowman they made a snow dog for Marli. The three of these kids were having the best time. I wish you could hear the laughter. What an amazing day. The snow was so wet. Grandpa is so smart he made Frosty a chair to support him. It's a good thing,because he was so heavy he was starting to lean to one side.
When I asked Jake what the name of his snowman was he looked at me like DUH? Mom! Frosty of course. Marli said my snowdog's name is Frosty's snowdog. Ok then!
Isn't he the cutest snowman you have ever seen? I told Grandpa, Jake and Marli that Jaxon was smiling. I'm sure Jaxon was so happy watching this.
