I love it! I always use a giant snow ball for the base. I have never seen a snow man with a conical base…That is awesome!!

Love it…the pipe is a perfect finishing touch!:)

There’s no way that ol’ sailor caught one THAT big!

Great to see you all enjoying the snow! Hope that means you’re all feeling hale and hearty again.
