zird is the word [userpic]
It's the epitome of a winter wonderland here. We've had snow, fat and flurrious, white and wondrous, softly falling, whipping sideways, whiteout sifting, all day. Sometime around midday, I heard the thunk and swoop of the shovel; Anders was out futilely clearing the driveway as the flakes floated down around him softly and quickly re-coating everything. The kids bundled up and took off like rockets into the snow. I had been admiring the pristine...and trackless...vistas from the window and was suddenly jolted from my reverie by the knowledge that every soft white surface would shortly be a churned and stomped snow-mash landscape. Freelance kid sculpture was in progress as I headed around the front of the house, camera in hand.

Anders had abandoned the hopelessness of shoveling for the far more enticing activity of building a snow fort, using Clifford the Big Red Rock as part of the fortifications. They piled and molded and sculpted and patted for over an hour, perfecting Cliffordborg. Halfway through they abandoned the construction project for the far more satisfying giant snowball fight that roped in several other neighborhood munchkins against Anders, and I left for the mall (After! Christmas! Sales!)...and by the time I got back it was too dark to take a good photo, so hopefully I'll get one tomorrow.

It looks lovely...and cold. :)

Love the extra snow shots :)

I'm jealous!!

love the snow!! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!

I think I say this every time but your kids are so cute!

Brrrr! Good thing the fright adrenaline kicked in. :)

Eeeek! Whew! I needed a good scare!

I love the troll hats! The one looks a little more scary than that other.

Liz, I love the troll hats, as does Erik. :) How would we go about finding one over here in the States? Erik has got the ferocious growls, expression, and claw-hands, down pat... ;)

BTW, just got home from vacation yesterday, so Frohe Weinachten to you and your's, and a Happy New Year!


They're great, aren't they?? My brother and Simone sent them to the kids from Germany. I have no idea where to find them here, haven't seen anything like them. I'll ask him for you :)

Troll hats

Hi, Lizardeks brother here.
the troll hats are from a company called Eisbär - Austrian, they are one of the sponsers of the austrian ski team, they are everywhere here. there are several companies in the states that make all kinds of similar hats, just check out the local ski shop. (if you live anywhere near one, or check online available anywhere....)

We finally have a ton of snow here as well. It sure took its time coming this year. I was so jealous of the shots that gissa and blue_eyed_girl were posting in OCTOBER!

It's so pretty!

Karin cracks me up - she has such a lot of personality.

Love the shot of the kids, they have such great expressions. We've got a ton of snow here in Småland & both my kids have been busy building snow tunnels.

Great picture of the kids- and I love the hats. Karin looks like the older sibling in the picture though!
