Vegetable creatures!

The kids had a session with madam zucchini, a healthy eating workshop.
When we arrived madam zucchini was still setting up so the kids helped to chop up the vegetables.
Madam Zucchini then performed a little play whilst wearing a cardboard theatre and using vegetable creatures
stars of the show

The children then got to make their own creatures

Visiting friends/quad bike

We visited some friends who live two hills away (20 minutes). This is the view from their garden.
It was freezing! The kids couldn't stay out for too long.
B had a turn on their quad bike.
He is now saving up for one of his own :)

And while the kids played, I sat in front of the woodburner, drinking tea and chatting :)

Day of snow!

A day of fun in the snow!
Not many words are needed to explain what's happening in this post :)

After the sledging we made some snowmen

or rather one snowman and one snowlady

K made her snowlady a skirt of leaves
while the boys hit their snowman with snowballs :)
Hot chocolate break
Back inside after a lovely day, now dry and warm and watching a movie :)

We finally got some snow!

After waiting ALL winter, we finally got some snow!!
This picture was taken early evening when the snow had just started to settle. I love how blue everything looks.
The snow was thick enough for sledging at around 9.30pm, and because they had waited so long for the snow, Hubby said that B and K (the younger 2 were asleep) didn't have to wait any longer. The three of them got layered up in warm clothing and off they went.
The rest of these photos were taken by Hubby...

And there was still more than enough snow for the younger two when they woke up in the morning :)
