So this is one of the things we got up to during the days leading up to the wedding. There was a little bit of snow left in Helsinki and the temperatures hovered on both sides of zero. That may not be the ideal winter weather however the slightly wet snow is excellent for making snowmen.
Our children would be excited about a tiniest patch of white so this was heaven to them even though by Finland's standards this is very little snow for the time of the year.
Ecco boots! In Finland in the winter practicality wins when it comes to your children's clothing.
By the end of the week there were five snowmen in my mother's garden and very little snow on the ground surrounding them. By now I could imagine that poor them have probably melted to half of their original size and lost a few body parts in the process...
