We had even more snow!
But somehow the milk lady still made it to the house! We were very impressed.
Look how thick it was yesterday morning. It has snowed since and is much thicker.
Obviously baking HAS to be done :o)
And then we started on the igloo! First we built the foundations
We made bricks using a Tupperware box.
We had to stop due to lack of light....and we were hungry!
Today - more snow! There are steps there somewhere.
In the back garden the snow was thigh high!
The boys created a ramp on the hill :0D
and while they played in the back, I got on with the igloo. Here I am making bricks. The snow doesn't look as thick because it has been trampled down :o)
I cheated using a wooden board over the doorway. It worked perfectly.
Because I was working with a sloping roof, I shaped the bricks.
Now there is a gap in photos which makes it all look timeless and oh so easy...in reality it took me 2 days to complete it :o)
Ta da! The entrance tunnel still needs to be made...maybe tomorrow.
It is hard to show the size inside,there is room for many more children than pictured :o)
hubby coming down to admire the completed igloo.
After a lovely warm bath to defrost, we had baked rice pudding to warm up our tummies :o)
