Almost a year ago, just before Christmas, we had a lot of snow in the north of the Netherlands (where E-beertje and I live!) In 24 hours there fell 50 cm of snow (20 inches)!!!
(December 18, 2009)
yesterday, E-beertje stayed inside all day..
watching the snow fall all day and watching the children play!!!
he never had seen something so beautiful, but at the same time it was a bit scary also, all those big snowflakes looked very, very big for a little bear like himself
But today, his curiousity won!!
The sun was shining and it wasn't snowing as much as yesterday!
He wanted to go outside!
If I went with him, he wouldn't be afraid, he said!
And well...who can say no to such a sweet bear...I know I can't!!!
First he wanted to go for a sleigh ride!!!
It doesn't show on the picture, but it was a very steep slope!!!
So I shouted "hang on!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
.....but it was already too late
Poor bear...luckily he fell soft!!
But the snow was very cold!!!
Let's think about something else to do....
A snowball fight???
Yesssssssssss...that will be fun!
First we made a stash of snowballs and then...
Don't tell anyone else..but E-beertje does throw a bit like a girl
After a few misses, I threw a snowball back to E-beertje!
But...euh....I forgot he's just a miniature bear!
I still hear him screaming..."M-tje, nooooooooooooooooo!!!!"
My snwoball was a bit too big, I'm so sorry E-beertje
What can we do that is a bit safer for you little one??
We could make a snowman, euh...snowbear???
And skating a few rounds on a private ice rink!!
E-beertje is using a chair for balance, but it is his first time skating!!
LO-bear (Little Orange bear) joined him for the skating, that was fun!!!
But after all the fun, E-beertje was very cold!
So I took him inside,
put a blanket around him,
put his chair with the fire and ther he's sitting now,
nice and cozy and getting warm again!
I think I will bring him a nice cup of hot chocolate!!
