Winter has arrived!

We had the first snowfall of the season last night.

The boys leapt out of their beds and were outside playing before we were even dressed!

When Alasdair saw out of the window he just kept gasping, saying 'Wow' and pointing at it.

The snow gave a very festive feel to the Christmas Fair at the boys' school this morning. We bought some lovely crafts that the boys had made at school as well as some children's books and a few wee toys.

Once we were out in the playground Alasdair had his first ever chance to walk in the snow. He absolutely loved it!


Gaelic word of the day:
sneachd (shn-achg) - snow


  1. So fun! I can't wait for our first snow this year! Your littlest man looks so cute enjoying his first walk in the snow! :)

  2. How wonderful! I am just a wee bit jealous - OK, a lot jealous! Our temps have gotten low the past few days (nights, actually), but no snow yet. I can hardly wait! :)

  3. Yay!!!! What fun for you and the boys! The snow looks beautiful!

    I am loving the Gaelic words ;D and *trying* my best to pronounce them :D


I love reading everyone's comments, so thank-you for taking the time to leave them! I try and respond to them here too, so do check back later on.
