Here are a couple photos of our 'hood' all covered with snow.
Though Halloween isn't the dress-up occasion it is in the states, carnival is. I let the kids decide what they wanted to "be" this year. Simon wanted to be a vampire which isn't too surprising. I mean, with his almost translucent white skin and his naturally brooding self, it was a very appropriate costume. To be honest, I think he looked 100% gorgeous.
Jonas opted for the cat costume. I searched everywhere for cat ears and tales etc, but after hours of disappointment, I decided to knit them myself. I think they turned out really cute, and Jonas made an adorable cat.
It's been a very special winter so far. Apart from the bits of bad luck I've had, I've also had some really good, creative ideas which I will soon put to good use. Roel is sharing his computer with me when he can, which is nice. Hopefully I'll be back to writing soon and getting all those crazy words out of my head once again.
