Spending our days inside

It is COLD outside. So, we have been staying indoors looking at books, playing games and keeping warm.

I miss our big blue skies that we usually have here in the Jura.  The sky has been grey all day long in preparation for the snow we are to get tomorrow. 

Tomorrow…come rain or snow, I will host my first giveaway on this blog.  Make sure to come and join in the fun!!!  

Bring your mittens!

    Hello Pumpkin! Just wanted to let you know about a blogger who contacted me the other day. Her blog looks like something you might be interested in reading and maybe contribute to? It’s about children and outdoor activities. The blogger is a Norwegian woman living in Canada. I thought this would be right up your alley. Enjoy! http://www.activekidsclub.com/index.html

    Oh a give away – Ok it’s friday. I hope I remember to stop by! And staying indoors isn’t always a bad thing, but I’m sure it’s harder with 3! Really, I just love your new blog template (said it again)…

    I am dreading going back to the UK, I hear it is really cold there, well in my area!!

    We have been blessed with fantastic weather for our holiday in Liguria..it is cold now, but then it is 6pm..but today was so warm. :-)

    I want to snuggle up with a quilt, or throw, books, magazines, toasty socks !!

    I love the changing banner!
    How did you do it?

    Snow tomorrow?
    We need to buy snow gear, I feel my kids are under-dressed.

    BTW, I read your village has some kind of downhill skiing thingy. Is it nice?

    Torun,
    I really love what they are doing on the website. I would love to contribute to it but it is only about kids in Canada? I will certainly continue reading it though. :) Thank you for the link.

    Expatraveler,
    I have extended the entry time until 7am my time Monday. It has been pretty ugly outside with freezing rain so we haven’t had much chance to get out. I hope it snows soon and then it won’t be so ugly out. I prefer snow over freezing rain any day. I really likfe this template too. It is a good one and I didn’t have to do much work on it which I love.

    Anne,
    I am with you on snuggling up in a quilt with a book!! I love winter because it is perfect for that sort of thing. Oh and snuggling with children or even better husbands. :)

    Sissi,
    The banner is my favorite part of the theme. I didn’t have to do anything but resize and upload the images to my server. The coding for the rotating banner is written into the template.

    We are getting freezing rain right now but the snow should start tonight.

    We have a ski station right by our village. I have never been to it but I have heard it is nice. It is small and perfect for kids. Someone told me that you can rent skis for about 20 CHF a year but I need to find out where.
