We had a huge snowstorm this week, thoroughly blanketing our yard and even keeping Alan home for two days from teaching. It was wonderful, but the kids aren't used to getting that cold. (Plus, we hadn't unpacked our hats, gloves, etc. yet so it was hard to play in it.) Last year we built a snowman and went sledding, but this time we did neither; we only went out to enjoy it in short spurts.
At one point, though, I asked Skyler if he wanted to build a snowman. "No," he replied decisively. "We did that before. It melted."
