.. where snow finally arrives and Ikea goes sledging

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

guess what! it’s a new year, 2012!! i’m sure this year will be even more fun than the previous ones. because, u know, finally the snow is here, in Kadriorg!! and this happened quite mysteriously, i might add, because it was suddenly all white just on Saturday morning – just like that! and i KNOW, this time the snow machines did not work..

so, once the snow was here, i was eager to test the new sledge that had mysteriously arrived in our home just around Christmas time. and i know it was not for me*, because we, giraffes don’t do sledging very much. well, until now that is!! because, apparently, sledging is lots of fun!!
so, here’s me checking out the seat belts and other things..

..before heading out in the WILD WILD SNOW, jei..!!!

apparently, there was more snow that had not arrived during the night. Instead, it was snowing on me while sledging, hehe. i could almost not see anything AT ALL!

luckily, i had help driving this new sledge, so it was OK. we did make a big round in Kadriorg, but i don’t have more fotografs, because we were little bit afraid of this wild snow getting into the camera – because it very much tried, i can tell u! so, needless to say, sledging is lots of fun, probably will be ranked quite high on my 100 most fun ideas to do (for a giraffe) list, once i have time to put it together. but it COULD take some time, because i am very busy, especially now that all this gr8 snow is here, jei! in fact, i have to go to a secret place right now. so, until then, let me know if you have already had snow and if u have been sledging or doing any other fun things with it! Have fun and cu l8r!

* disclaimer – this sledge is actually my friend’s, Pipi’s. But she is not using it ALL the time, so me Pipi and Sipsik made a deal that (reads): “Other people (or animals – very important!) can also use the sledge – for sledging purposes only – when Pipi, or Sipsik (or their friends) are not using it at the moment.” so, it means that even my friend Angel could use it. But he’s not much into exercising, so we’ll see..
