Ho ho ho! Big Snow!
You probably know we had a BIG storm over the weekend.
Cornelius and the other resident bears simply can’t stop talking about it. Where’s the sled? Is the shovel ready? Should we go cross-country skiing? What about snowboarding?
Paddingtons engage in intense dialogue.
Some of them called friends in warmer climes to brag to tell them 300 feet 24 inches of white puffy flakes had blanketed everything in sight!
Aunt Lucy supervises calling queue.
Others gazed for hours at the winter wonderland, stopping every 15 minutes for refreshments not moving an inch or blinking even once they were so awestruck:
Snow in these parts, this much snow, will do that to a person.
Knock knock knock!
Who could that be?
Oh hello, Snowman! Go outside? Outside where it’s cold? Are you insane?
Brrrrr! Simply magical. Brrrrr! Do you like my hat? Brrrrr!
Hey, everybody! Look what I’m making!
Yeah, well, hurry up. We haven’t eaten in hours days! Should have worn my other coat! I’ve got something on the stove!
There, just need a few more finishing touches. Pretty handsome, if I say so myself!
Now, Snowman, let’s go inside and play. Do you like “Frosty the Snowman”?
Oh boy! Time for the best part. The cold weather makes me so hungry.
What a glorious day!
In all the world, I couldn’t have found a finer friend.
What? You know how to fly? Oooo! Show me!
Happy Christmas week, everyone!!
