Snowman Date: Just Add Snow!

Here's a great and simple date to do over the holidays...(and of course you can involve the kids if applicable). This can be thrown together rather quickly because how hard is it really to build a snowman? The hard part might be getting your spouse to participate...if that's your concern, then I suggest trying what I try. If that doesn't work, then you're outta luck. :)

Sometimes, when I just suggest doing something together, I get the "nahh...". But, when I make it a surprise date or put a little twist to it he'll see that I've put work into planning a date and he wouldn't dream of saying "nahh..." So, even though it's not on the top of his list of fun things to do, he'll do it with me....and then he actually ends up having a fun time. That's my trick. Nothing grandiose, but it works for me everytime!

Okay,
Snowman Date.
Here it goes.


Round up the necessary snowman items:
  • Rocks (painted black if necessary) to resemble the Eyes, Buttons, and Mouth
  • Scarf
  • Hat (any kind will do)
  • Pipe [if your snowman smokes, that is.. :) ]
  • A carrot
  • Put them all in a box with a bow on it (or wrapped)and inside have a note which says, "Just Add Snow"
Dress up in your warm winter attire (try to look cute...this could turn into a snowball fight...and proceed to a snow wrestling match...followed by, well, use your imagination). Gather all of his winter attire, too, so it's ready to go.

Then, when you're all dressed up and ready to go, give the box to your spouse to open. (imagine his look of bewilderment now...). Then give him his winter stuff. The more you look excited, the more he's gonna go along with it (generally speaking...)

Then...build that snowman, make a few snow angels, throw a few snowballs...
and then just when your toes are about to fall off.... head inside for some hot cocoa!

*Want to spice it up?*
(recommended for use with no kids around...)


Build "Snow lovers" – If you have a secluded back yard, gather your lingerie and boxers to dress up down your snow lovers. Then you can watch them melt into one big puddle of love!



Come on back on Wednesday for some romantic hot cocoa ideas to complete this date!!

Weird question, but how would you get the boxers onto the snowman?
