Think your family tradition of making a snowman with your sibling is cute? Artistic, even, because you stuck a carrot in there, or pushed a couple eyes in? Unfortunately, the Bartz brothers have a Christmas tradition that'll show you just how pathetic you really are.

Every year for the past four, the three brothers Bartz (Austin, Connor and Trevor) have made a ridiculously oversized snow sculpture in their front yard. This year, it was a turtle; previous instalments have included a shark, walrus and blowfish.

The artwork is undoubtedly impressive, but even better is the fact that you get to see the kids growing up. Even with their newfound height, though, the sculptures still look freaking massive. [Facebook via Twisted Sifter]
