Rainbow Snow

We actually had some snow the night before last, of course Ebi-kun couldn't wait to get out there and play in it. By scraping all the snow off the car and stealing some from the neighbours we managed to get enough to make two little snowmen. We tried to use chalk to mark the faces but it didn't work so well.
So I got out the food colouring, I think I saw this on a blog somewhere but I don't bookmark snow activities since we rarely get any and I can't remember where or when I saw it! Anyway, I mixed up red, yellow and blue and we used pipits to paint the snowmen...
The end result was colourful albeit a little bit scary :o)
I am off to pick up my permanent residence visa this morning, it has only taken the 9 months to process it!

    And congrats on PR. 9 months, huh? You needed an extra long background check, maybe? ;P
