More snow photos

Here are the usual "family playing in the snow" photos that I always take...

Snow in High Wycombe

The forecasters are getting better at this prediction lark, they said it would snow overnight, and it did. At 11pm last night it was snowing heavily but with very strong winds, so it wasn't really settling much, but the winds slowed overnight, and now the big, flakey, great-for-making-snowmen snow has fallen. Olga has taken the boys down to the vets for a scheduled appointment, but she's walking them there, and will see what the main roads are like. I'm staying here with Lara, listening to Terry Wogan's last show, and we'll go out for a play in the snow once Olga is back. Luckily, I don't think conditions are bad enough to prevent us going over to Reading this afternoon for Olga's passport interview, and my night out with the boys :- ):-)

More Nativity Pics

Here's an updated Nativity album, with some more pics taken today, and even a video. There's no sound on some of the video, which the more cynical of you might think is a relief!
There was a noticable domino effect today with the kids, when one started crying and was hauled off by a concerned parent, this tended to set another one off, who was then plucked from the floor.. Lara saw us early on - we were surprised and pleased how easy it was for her to pick us out in a crowded, darkened room - but didn't throw any tantrums and seemed to really enjoy the whole thing.

Playing in the park

Last Saturday we went to the park in Wycombe to play, some photos and a video have been uploaded to the "December 2009" album on the left of the blog...

It's snowing in Marlow

Woohoo, the first snow of the winter is falling. It doesn't look like the kind that will last very long, but that might be famous last words. The ironic thing is I'm listening to the South Africa v England Test Match on the radio. Cricket, snow, Christmas approaching.. wierd!

Nativity Play 2009

It's that time of year again! Lara's theme this year is Santa, after being a snowflake last year. She seemed to really enjoy joining in with the singing and clapping, and didn't come rushing over when she saw me or Olga (it brought a lump to my throat when she saw me and climbed to her knees shouting "Paa-paa! Paa-paa!" and waving at me!).
Here are some photos, and one from last year for comparison :-)
