Sinterklaas 2013 and fun in this year’s first snow

The past days have been pretty pretty nice here in Norway; first we celebrated the dutch tradition of SinterklaasΒ (two times! πŸ˜‰ ), Misha didn’t quite understand the concept behind it (neither do most foreigners πŸ˜‰ ), but wrapped gifts are always a hit and really, what can beat a rubber duck?? πŸ˜‰






On Sunday the (real) snow arrived, finally, and it didn’t take long for Misha to remember the fun we had last year…and start all over again!

This year’s bonus, he is now able (and more than willing!!) to help me shovel the snow in front of the garage, yay! πŸ˜‰






And today, the Xmas season began! It has been here for some weeks actually, but as a dutchie I can’t start until Sinterklaas is gone…Misha made pepperkake (keppekake according to him πŸ˜‰ ) in the kindergarten today…ho ho hooooo!! πŸ˜‰
