VIDEO: Family builds towering snowman in their front yard

ANKENY, Iowa (CNN) — That’s one big snowman!

The Peters family in Iowa got the snowball rolling on this 15-feet tall creation. An eight-foot ladder was needed to build him.

The mother, Karen, says her son came up with the idea, enlisting his friends to help him build it piece by piece.

But, if you can believe it, this wasn’t her son’s first go at a towering snowman. Last year, he built an 11-foot tall snowman in Ames, where he is a student at Iowa State University.
