It's been a long weekend here as the Easter holidays start Wednesday afternoon before Maundy Thursday, and end on Tuesday morning after Easter Monday. This makes for a nice long Easter weekend in Norway!
And as you might know, Easter here in Norway is all about skiing, hiking, soaking up sun and read/watch crime mysteries.
Well, there haven't been any skiing and no sun, but a lot of snow and plenty of time for reading my mystery books...
This last week we have been out shoveling snow almost every day.
We have over a meter of snow no...Fun for the kids as they can dig snowcaves, but I, who had hopes for an early spring, just *sighs*...
Today we had to shovel the roofs because it's going to rain next week.
The kids was not hard to ask as they normally are not allowed to walk on the roofs ;) 
Despite all the snow we have had a great weekend after all with
Eastereggs filled with candy (trying to ignore the kids high on sugar...)
Cake
Hubby and I finally got the time to catch up on season two of Game of Thrones, so now we are ready to start watching the third season
Easter Bunny rolls for breakfast
Knitting
Påskeliljer
A lot of wet mittens, hats and outdoor clothes due to playing in the snow
And as usual, Endre is awake early when he knows he doesn't have to go to school... He's been up 6 am every morning. Just in time to watch Scooby Doo ;)

How's your weekend been?

  9. Sounds like an eventful weekend! Especially where there is candy involved. I hope that spring comes for you soon, it has been late arriving here sadly. I would love to know how to make those Easter Bunny rolls, they are so cute! I'm glad to see you have some pretty colorwork keeping you busy.

    1. Oh, well. Spring will arrive some day. Might be a little late this year though...
      You can bake the Bunny rolls from any dough you like, and you can find the how to in my food blog. It's in norwegian, but I've made a photo tutorial :)

  10. I am with you! We still have three-foot high snow drifts. And it is cold, too. A weekend of playing in the snow and reading mysteries sounds wonderful!
