J'adore la neige (This is what I said when I saw the snow the first time)

Exploring around the house where we stayed
 Ice breaking in the little dam
 Tabogganing in the 'nooooo' (as Evie calls it) with our friend 'Jess' whose family kindly invited us to stay at the snow

 Mum thinks this looks like a movie poster...maybe it could be called Men of the Snow....
 Ev using the 'snow slide' I deicovered
 Mum and Ev in the snow
 Tubing!! Super fun whether pulled along by someone of going down the runs :)
 Duplo 'seal shows' (complete with Laurence the seal) in my AWESOME thermals (amazingly 6 kids all ended up adding to this and working together in complete harmony for quite a few hours...bliss 4 the parents!!)
 Watching a helicopter take off at the schnapps distillery - where Mum and dad had a Schnappycino and Schnappy Hot chocolate Ev and I only got gingerbread face cookies though...
 My Skis :) i cried when I had to return them after my lesson - I REALLY liked the snow and all associated activities!!!
 MMMMMMarshmallow.....

 Snow chains - our first experience of fitting them, after a perfect blue sky day for tobogganing we had crazy windy snowy day to complete the experience on wednesday...

 So instead of spending the day out in the snow Ev and Jess hung inside with Mum (and Dad when he wasnt showboarding)

 My Skiing lesson
 I liked to use my hands to make my 'pizza slice' shape with my skis when it wasn't perfect
 After my lesson we made a snow man...



 Made snow angels....
 We spent a fair amount of time being assorted superheros at the house....I had my spiderman, superman and a spare cape so the 4 big kids spent time doing some superhero shows - includingan interesting beat box show by Stone and I......
 Enjoying the slightly chilly outdoors
 Sparklers to end the week....


 I LOOOOOOOOVED the snow!!!!!
