Snow Day

3 Feb

Yesterday morning my kids woke up at 6:30 and stared at their school’s website, praying for a snow day.  And it paid off.  By about 6:45 the school put up the announcement that school was called off for the day due to snowy weather.  There were a lot of cheers.  I heard them from my bed.  So we spent the day baking bagels, learning to make traditional danish buns (from a Danish friend), going to the park with the sleds, playing in the snowy garden and then going out sledding for a second time on the grounds of a local castle.  By the end of the day the kids were red cheeked, happy and in need of a mug of hot chocolate.

Not a bad backdrop to admire while your kids throw themselves down a snowy hill.

Chrysanthemum didn’t appreciate the snow so much.  She has delicate feet.

    wow, what a view! sledding looks like fun, still have to give that a try. 🙂 and chickens?? awesome. never really imagined them walking around the snow. hehe how many do you keep? do they keep laying eggs even during the cold? I imagine them a bit shivery. hmm

      Yes we have three chickens at the moment. And they each lay a different coloured egg (white, blue, red). They’re not too impressed with this freezing weather and snow and the egg production is quite low at the moment. I can’t blame them though. Poor things are sleeping outside in -20 degree weather! Have a great (warm) weekend Kat!
