After a recent snowstorm, Violet Alcott-Baker, daughter of John and Wendy Baker, sister to Brody Baker, visited her special neighbor, Brenda “Maka” Adams. At the ripe old age of two and half Violet decided it was time to build her first snowman.
Violet and “Maka” began this special project and later enticed Dad to lend a hand too. Violet’s snow man is the hit of Valley Avenue. Many are seen stopping by to take a photo.
