Kindergarten Snowmen. Made with socks, buttons and anything else in the bucket of goodies. The teacher knits the little scarves.

They look so cute in their little wonderland in the hallway.

Addie becoming an official Girl Scout at her Investiture Ceremony last week.
The lady in the red vest (Sally) was my girl scout leader when I was little! The leader pinning Addie is Sally's daughter, she was in my troop.

Before the ceremony the troop made gourd snowmen. They were adorable!
