Happy new year!

You can see my card for you in the former post.

We were all very OK to say goodbye to the past year. No tears, no regrets, we just didn't look back at all and stepped into 2011 with the intention to make it a good year.

My brother had a fireworkarrow, or how do you call it?, where a written wish could be put in.
So mom worte a wish for all of us and he asked us to be present when he aired it.

That was after we wished each other happy new year.

He wanted the arrow to go to the left of him, but it went up in a bow to right above our heads and there it make a poof and a wonderful coloured umbrella was over us.

That was very nice.

For the first time in years we were outside right after midnight and we walked to friends of us nearby and brought them our wishes and went to another family of friends and brought our wishes too.

Then we went home.
It was misty and we had all those firworks above us. Very strange.

None of the neightbours were at home, so we were allowed to have the music louder than usual and we danced a bit, ate some traditional food and had some 7up.

Then we went to bed.
That was a very good start of the year.

Bye snowhut

Today the temperatures went up a bit and the sun was shining very bright.
So our snowhut started tp change a bit.

The 20 cm of snow that was on top became brittle.
It wasn't water, but it melted a bit and then went ice again.

The walls are much smoother and more compact.

So in fact the hut has become a bit better except on top.

We're not using it, so we're not in danger of getting the whole lot on top of us.
Mom warned us enough!

Today the shops are allowed to sell fireworks again.

I won't buy it, because I think it's a waste of money.

I think that one show of fireworks in a town is far more beautiful that a lot of noise and simple fireworks in front of every housedoor.

The past years people have bought more and more expensive fireworks, and even it's nice to see, I always have to think that many animals are very afraid of it and that many people don't even have a normal place to sleep or have problems buying food.

So it's a big "no" for me.

How about you?

Dangerous woods

The past week we've seen that not only snow was covering the trees and lanternposts, but also ice.

Mom already said to be careful not to stand under trees and other places where ice was on top of hanging from.

Today it was on the news that large parts of the woods are closed because of the same danger.

During a few hours today it wasn't freezing anymore and I saw quite a lot of snow and ice falling from roofs.
Inside the house it was a a strange noice.

It's sad we can't walk in the woods at the moment.
Today my sister and I arrived home again after staying with our oldest brother.
We now have to make other plans for the rest of the week.

An extra day

We had such a good day that we called mom to ask if we were allowed to stay another day.
She had to laugh, like she expected the call, and said we should ask that my oldest brother. It's his house.

Ofcourse we were allowed to stay.

Maybe we'll go iceskating.
There's a very nice near to where my bother lives and it's very cheap to go there.

I'll tell about that tomorrow.

We've had a very good time together.
We prepared gourmet, with lots of meat and salad and sauces and wonderful towers of grilled mached potatoes.

Every one was there and even though we had hardly enough place, we had lots of fun.

I gave presents to one of my brothers and he liked them.
And I got presents too.

After the others had left we tidied the room again and cleaned the mess and then sat down to watch a movie.
We love to stay over at my bother's.
