This year the snow is soooo very late - it arrived just 7 days before Christmas!
We suffered cold winds & rains for a fair number of weeks, which ended in a big storm on Friday with 50km/h winds.
Then at last, the snow came on Sat & has been coming down since then... today is the 4th day of snowfall...
i'm ecstatic as is Tobias! ;)
Here's a picture from Saturday's snowfall:
Here's one from yesterday (3rd day):
Today it snowed steadily from the wee hours of the morning till about a half hour ago. So i would say we have had a good 6 to 8 inches of snow :D - the kids are absolutely loving it - having snowball fights along the way to school & of cos at break time in school. It made Tobias & a few others late for school yesterday - the teacher let them off with a warning this time, next time they get a strike against their names.
While we suffered the rain storms before the lovely snow came, Tobias & myself went & made candles in the old hospital by the river in town. Tobias fell in love with candle making after he got to make one with our friends who live in Fribough. So this year he really wanted to go make more. But school timetables did not allow us to go to there again & make them with our friends there. Instead we made them here... which i feel is much better - not so crowded here as it's not in such an open place like in Fribough.
Have a look at our works of wax ;)
Tobias made the greenish ones on the left & i made the other two. We sent 2 of these to Singapore, one to each set of grandparents. Hope they will like it.
May the Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ brighten this Christmas season for you & May His Light shine on your path in the coming year.
PS: i sit here writing this blog, listening to the song, "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..." - it certainly does look that way :D
