Great idea!  Recycled snowmen!  I don't imagine a snowman made out of real snow would be possible in Texas.

Hey, Sara - Somehow I'm not getting a good visual on that there recycled carrot. LOL

That sounds like my kind of event. Hope you get to go and take some pictures to share with the rest of us.

Sara, feel free to head to Maryland and grab as much snow as you would need. We seem to have an abundance of it these past few days.

Thanks all for your comments, I appreciate them. The crazy thing that happened on that Saturday was a low temperature of 22 degrees . . . in the Houston area!! We are not in the habit of "winterizing" on any significant level, so there were sprinkler ruptures and other cold weather damage throughout the area. We are used to difficult weather in the summer with heat, humidity and hurricanes, but the cold this year was unexpected. I missed Winterfest because I was helping people with the sprinkler issue. Next year? . . .
