The Bonnar family’s “Melting Snowman” was trying to beat the rain by getting out his rubber boots and umbrella!! He needed his sunglasses for the beautiful sun that was shining Tuesday. This snowman was made by the Bonnar family, Mason age 5, Maggie age 3 and Molly age 1. We will see how long he lasts, the umbrella is working great so far!! He was made today, January 26, 2015. Their goal is to keep him until the 2015 Canada Winter Games! Bring on the cooler temperatures and snow so they can keep “Melty” the snowman. it is also their entry in the Snow Daze snowman building contest as part of Mardi Gras.
Mr. Lawrence’s Grade 4 class at Ron Brent Elementary built these snowmen for the Snow Daze Snowman Building contest as part of Mardi Gras. Here’s what they had to say: “We had a fantastic time building snowman for the Mardi Gras’ Snow Daze contest. We made a snow sheep to go along with the Chinese New Year of the sheep. And we all had a great time building the tall snowmen which were about eight feet tall. We brought scarves out to put on all the really fantastic snowmen we built. We hope we do well in the contest, our whole class had a great time! It was really the best way to top off the beginning of a sparkling great weekend.”

Snowmama and snowbaby. Made by the Bonnar kids, Mason, 5, Maggie, 3, Molly, 1. They used all the snow in the front yard.
