TOLEDO CHRONICLE - What can you do with all this snow? The family of Marvin and Carolyn Bohstengel found a fun use for it. On Saturday, Feb. 20, "Frosty the Snowman" was brought back to life and this time reaching a height of almost eight feet tall! 

"This is definitely the largest snowman we've ever had in our yard," said Carolyn.  Marvin and Carolyn's children and grandchildren worked together to build this impressive snowman. 

Their family includes eldest daughter Melanie Blocker, Toledo, with her husband. Tim, and their two children, Tyler and Avery; Charlotte Blocker, Toledo, with her husband, Ryan, and their two children, Conner and Clay; third daughter, Cheri Starry, Marion with her husband, Lester, and their two children, Brianna and Caleb; youngest daughter me (Marci Fish), Hudson with my husband, Paul, and our three children, Madalyn, Gavin and Olivia; and one son Corey Bohstengel, Ames. 

It was fun working together to build the snowman, everyone had a hand in it. This eight-foot Frosty resides on the front yard of the Bohnstengel farm located a few miles south of Clutier near the Vining corner. 

With spring approaching he won't last for long.
