It is now officially winter here in Lyckeby in Sweden! Because yesterday evening snow began to fall over Lyckeby, which resulted in me waking up this morning to a crispy, cold and snowy white view over Ekebacken Nature Reserve from my window. And the snow could not have arrived more perfectly, just in time to make this first Advent Sunday of four before Christmas feel extra Christmas like. In other words, Lisen and I had A Perfect Snowy Advent Premiere here in Lyckeby today.
And below are some pics from our first walk in the snow this morning.

The walk continues.
Fa la la la la - la la la la... :-)
Come on Alex.
The only thing Lisen finds annoying about the snow...
... is that it forms small snowballs between her paws, which she has to stop and try to gnaw away.
Lisen and I on the lookout...
... until Lisen remembers that with Advent and Christmas comes a lot of yummy Christmas treats and presents. Yuuum!!!
Which is true, December is definitely a fun and delicious month in Sweden indeed. So here's to the start of this year's Advent season, to a great start to this year's Christmas season and to a fabulous snowy December month! Happy First Advent Everyone!
