It's Not A Snowman...

The flu kicked my butt, but now I am back and ready to blog.

Thankfully mother nature and Marcus gave me something to blog about.

It's Snowing!

And Marcus got me out of bed to show me what he made...



What in the World?

I should have been curious that he was singing a patriotic song as we were walking to the front door.
I reminded him that our house was for sale and maybe a nice tasteful snowman would have been better. The rocket, or whatever it is, might have been a better backyard choice.
**EDIT UPDATE**
I was just told by the artist that it is a Freedom Tower!
And he used spray paint for the colors.
And here is Blue enjoying the snow.

We actually got 2 really good contracts on our house on Monday. We chose one over the other and they ended up backing out yesterday. So it has been a roller coaster. They wanted us out in 2 weeks though, and that put me in a little bit of a panic. So now we are back to square one.

On an unrelated note, did you guys see the Bachelor on Monday?!!! It really made my blood pressure go up!

The snow looks so pretty! I am impressed with your hubby's snowy artwork! ;)
Good luck with the house. I am sorry you are back at square one.

He cracks me up. Did he spray paint it? I really need to go out and take some pictures...but I'd rather be lazy.
And..the Bachelor.....oh it is so cheesy, but I just can't help watching it.

What a fabulous...er...rocket or whatever! haha He did a fabulous job!

Hoping that a contract comes through on the house very soon for you!

I saw bits an pieces of the bachelor but it is just too painful to watch. lol

I heard it snowed alot there. It's beautiful. I hope we see some of that when we move there for the kids. Love your hubby's masterpiece. Sorry your back to square one with the house. I watched the Bachelor. I couldn't believe Ali left and that Vienna is still there.

Hooray for snow in Texas!!!

What did Marcus put in the snow to color it? You put our traditional snowmen to shame!! I'd much rather have something "original" in the yard! :) Especially if it is for sale....it's his marketing ploy to get the attention of drive by lookers.

You know, all the drive by lookers who are out in the snowstorm shopping for houses. Those ones. :)

Lucky to have such a fun husband!
And the Bachelor....don't even get me started!

I think Ali is going to pull an "Ed". What about you?
Can not see Vienna with him at all. And I am so rooting for Tenley!!

I miss the winter so much.... We've been having a especially hot and humid summer. I can't wait for fall to gets here ; )

I love the "freedom tower"! So excited about the offers on the house. Hopefully one will stick. Ha, no pun intended!

The snow is beautiful! I wonder if it will make it Central Tx. The "rocket" is very clever..teehee!!! I was furious after The Bachelor on Mon.! Why do we watch that silly stuff?

Shana said...

Blue is hilarious in the snow... our old Golden used to do that too... she was such a joy to watch in the snow. Buying/selling your house IS such a roller coaster ride.... I hope that it will all work out wonderfully for you... 2 weeks notice is scary! Your house is so cute, I will continue to pray for you.... as far as the Bachelor... MY HUSBAND is the one who watches it in my house! Can you imagine?!

Dina, Kim R. mentioned that you had a contract and I was so excited. Sorry that they backed out! Tell Marcus his art is awesome. :)

April said...
