Even if you don't know the family's name, you know their snow sculptures.

Members of the Bartz household in New Brighton have created enormous (and very impressive) playful snow sculptures every winter for the past four years.

And this season's is coming along swimmingly.

The family posted the above status on Facebook Monday, saying it could be done this week. In the comments, they said it's another sea creature.

So what are they following up?

In 2015 it was a turtle:

In 2014, it was a big shark.

Prior to that, it was a puffer fish and a walrus.
