Hyvää itsenäisyyspäivää kaikille!
Happy Independence Day to everyone! My beloved Finland is 93 years old today and we remember all those who have helped us have the freedom we enjoy today. And we will light two candles in the window so that any soldiers who are stranded in the cold will know that they have a warm welcome here.

We were on the catio checking all is well with our kingdom. I told everyone to proceeed with caution when I saw this track in the snow.
And then I realised it was just from Stran-veli who stood in his own pawprints - not some multi-toed bear who was hiding in the garden.
Ruska and Mirsku-veli were on guard, with the snow falling thick and heavy on their furs.
Ruska is very vigilant.

And fast. He is worthy of sharing my toys.

I kept watch from my reindeer-fur lined hut. This is a good place for a king to be.
And look what word I had to type to leave my comments on one of my many friends' blogs. Hehehehe.

Happy Finnish Independance Day! We like the two lit candles for lost soldiers; that's very poignant.

Your outside snow frolicking photos are so much fun to see! We would LOVE a reindeer lined hut, it looks verreh cozy.

Happy Independence Day to you. You have lots of snow. We don't get much but we do get lots of frost and ice. We have a reindeer skin bed which our Beans brought back from Norway for us. I like to rip at it and bite chunks of fur out of it.
