This is the craziest thing on earth. You should see all the snow here!! Here are some pictures so you can!! :)It was fun the first day when I was the only mom in Denmark who kept her kids home to play in the snow... Today I thought I should be a bit more responsible and send the kids to their last day of school before winter break so I drove through the blizzard to get them there. Yuck... 45 minutes later we arrived! It was not a fun drive. Several times I thought that there was NO way I was going to make it up the hill or around the corner or through the slushy roundabout... I am super cool though, I passed many weenies who got stuck. Not I! :) I shouldn't talk yet... it's supposed to snow for the rest of the week! I could be in a snow bank before I know it!Oh, snow tires? No, we don't have those... the guy at the snow tire store laughed at me when I called to ask for an appointment today. On December 23rd I can get snow tires... :) Snow is more fun when you don't have to drive in it. I can't imagine having to live like this every day... I thought it would be fun, but it's day two and I'm annoyed. Again, it's fine if I'm at home playing in it but things like grocery shopping, getting gas, going to the dump, driving kids to school... these are not fun things to do in the snow.

Today I had to unfreeze a grocery cart and try to shove my coin into the frozen slot and then drag the dumb thing through the iced over snowy bumpy parking lot... don't forget the freezing cold wind and blowing snow... and the poor little Andrea was involved... she isn't sure of all this cold white stuff. Of course, she does now that she likes to eat it. :) Today she was crying in the car and I had another 20 minutes... so I rolled down the window, took a chunk of ice off the car, and passed it to the backseat... instant happiness!Us going to school... :)It was cute to see Scotty's bornehaven's playground... covered in snow. The kids all brought sleds and went sledding all day. Scotty loved it!At least white snow everywhere makes it look brighter outside. I am getting tired of the blah gray sky. I did see some light blue sky today though... just for a minute

At least you now all have the right snow clothes to keep you dry and warm(which you didn't when you first moved there). It does look really pretty!
