Carnival Time!

Who needs warm weather for a carnival?? Not us, we say! This week started the St. Paul Winter Carnival. And since Joe and I had never been to it before when we lived here, we decided to check it out.

Our primary focus was the ice carving area. These folks can do some amazing things with a bunch of ice blocks!The Wizard of Oz! I hope this one wins.

Even more entertaining was this pair of judges. I'm not sure what gives with their outfits, but they made me laugh:This one was pretty funny as well - snowmen sitting around a fire, with one of them melted.
It was titled "Where's Frank?"

And while it wasn't nearly as cold as earlier in the week, it was still quite chilly. Thankfully, I have my great new hat Joe got me for Christmas!!
I love this hat - it's sooooo warm! No heat will get out of MY head!!

Those strange coats are Hudson Bay blanket coats. The Hudson Bay Trading Company created them many, many years ago and the department store The Bay here in Canada still sells the blankets.
And here ends today's history lesson.
