  1. My children are madly jealous of the icicles and snow fort! We've a warm-ish wet Christmas. Very dull!

    1. This is our second real snowfall. Normally we also get more than this. My parents in northern Germany also have had a warm winter so far. I wish I could send you some snow :).

  2. I love the sock dog!

    I can't let Olivia see this post; she'd go crazy if she saw the snow fort! She wants to build one so badly, but we have no snow. I promised we'd take a trip to the mountains soon...hopefully they will have enough snow to make a fort. This brings back memories of vacationing in Switzerland(at a friend's place) one year. They had so much snow that I was able to build a snow cave into the back of a tree on a hillside. So much fun! I think I was in fifth grade at the time.

    1. Oh, I do hope you'll find some snow. I think it's so sad when children grow up without experiencing snow. Where did you go in Switzerland? My relatives in the Jura mountains are also getting lots of snow these days. I wish I could send Olivia some snow.
