The snow canons are working overtime to keep the slopes white, but they do the job.
We also had a very large moon. And I needed to take a picture of it.
As you can see, that is the village where we are staying. can you see where the slopes are?
DH and I decided to get our first applestrudle with vanillesause, and when we were sitting on the terrace of the slope, we saw our party skiing past us, so we called them to have a break. Wonderful time, the kids did a black slope. We are very proud, it was an accident, but they managed, very well done.
As you can see, there is still snow, during the day the temperature is between 10 and 13°C, but at night it freezes, so they can still perpare the pistes. Everybody is enthousiastic, not as good as normal, but still pretty good.
Yesterday night we went to see the opera The Magic Flute by Mozart. Great performance. You can more info here.
We definetly brought the average age down by at least two decades. I guess the average age was 70, grin. But we brought some champagne with us and of course red velvet cake... With little silver forks and napkins, all in style.
Today we made some home made Christmas present for the boys to give in school It has to be a home made gift, so we made some Christmas ornaments.
So today we decided to buy a new Christmas tree, as my dad killed our old one, because he said t was dead... ahay... We decided to do it so early as we are away next weekend and also with Christmas and if we wait any longer we dont have time to enjoy it. The result:
I think it is again a wonderful tree and it makes me happy to see it standing in our living room. I hope it will survice so it will be with us a couple of years.
Yes, we saw it. Got up this morning at 4.30 and went to check if there were clouds or fog, but there wasnt so here it is. We took a picture with our camera and I must saw the result is better than I expected..
Woke up the kids so they could see it also and they thought it was creepy and cold,so they went back to bed very quicly.
I am glad we set the alarm clock, because it was spectacular.
Fantastic weather this morning, so we went to the park, looking for chestnuts. Most trees were not giving eny yet, but our favorite secret trees, had huge ones, these are the biggest in the last couple of years.
And who remembers Niels Holgersson... Well we saw one white goose between wild ones...
The boys brought their skateboards, so they practiced a bit and we walked. Nice morning out.
