It snowed today... yep! Poor "Dedo" was stuck outside on our back patio, looking rather unhappy about it. heh heh

"Mom" stayed inside and sketched things on her desk.
These are some little "schuimpjes" (foam candy) for Sinterklaas (St. Nicholas). The "fun" is tomorrow night, but more about that tomorrow.

And I, of course, slept! Here I'm in my newest comfy spot, in the zolder (attic).

I'm just dreaming about what Sinterklaas might bring me tomorrow night!
Until then ...

The word list:
Sneeuw = Snow
Snoep = Candy
Slaap = Sleep
Schuim = Foam
Schuimpjes = Small foam candy
Sinterklaas = Saint Nicholas
Roze = Pink

Tot ziens!
