GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Jan. 21 (UPI) -- Do you want to build a (12-foot) snowman?

A Michigan father-daughter team said it took them about 4-1/2 hours to construct a 12-foot tall snowman based on Olaf from Disney's Frozen.

Jess Lesatz and his daughter Samantha, 19, said it took nearly the entire day Friday to build the 12-foot Olaf in the front yard of their Grand Rapids home.

"His arms are basically a stick, his buttons are ice cream buckets cut in half with a black plastic around it," Jeff Lesatz told WXMI-TV. "His nose is basically a cone, his eyes are actually a Pam cap painted black."

Samantha Lesatz said she enjoys working on projects with her family that will elicit positive reactions from the community.

"That's the one thing I love about life is making other people happy and smiling, so it's really cool," she said.
