Come on it’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride …

Just hear those sleigh bells
Jingling ring ting tingling too
Come on it’s lovely weather
For a sleigh ride together with you
Outside the snow is falling
And friends are calling Yoo hoo
Come on it’s lovely weather
For a sleigh ride together with you

Giddy up giddy up giddy up,
Let’s go, let’s look at the show
We’re riding in a wonderland of snow

Last Saturday I drove out of town with part of the “D” clan to a farm down a road that doesn’t exist (according to the iPhone Map App.) The occasion was a sleigh ride that had been organised for a group of kids – who also got to meet and pet a few miniature horses and other ponies.

It was pretty cold, especially when up to my thighs in the drifts of snow to get better shooting angles. But our hosts laid on a warm fire and hot chocolate and the children seemed to have a ball.

One thing is for sure – this Christmas season is unlike anything this South African has ever experienced.

  1. Thanks for the wonderful pictures! It was great seeing you up to your knees in snow, you are becoming more Canadian everyday. The “D” clan eh? That is a fitting title or maybe Tribe D. So how do I get copies of the pictures? I know the other moms will want pictures too.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Please leave a comment with your (relevant & reverent) thoughts.
