Heffanutt is making a snow angel. Ant King wouldn`t join him, thinking it`s a childish thing to do and he is still a little grumpy about yesterday.  Heffanutt have a terrible headace and couldn`t eat his breakfast.  There is no way he will taste Ant Kings drinks ever again. Heffanutts hoping that a bit of fresh air would help. While laying there, Heffanutt`s thinking of the wonders of winter. Very pleased with the result he runs to get Ant King, telling him to come and take a look.

Ant King is a bit unwillingly, but when he sees the happiness of Heffanutts face he soon follows him to admire the angel.

They both look at the angel wondering, has the neighbor got a child visitor? But why would a child go into a stranger’s garden just to make footsteps all over an angel in the snow?  Little footsteps with something that looks like tiny clogs.

It`s freezing today, that type of cold when you have to hide your nose in a scarf to be able to breathe. Ant King and Heffanutt are almost running when doing their tasks. Every now and then they still have to stop and look, you see, despite being cold, it’s so amazingly beautiful. Snow crystals in countless numbers shining back at the sun, clear blue sky. At a distance, a red cabin in an all-white landscape, smoke coming out of the chimney, the boy`s neighbour preferring to be inside in freezing temperatures too.

Suddenly a snowball hits Heffanutt, he turns around towards Ant King and grabs a handful of snow ready to throw back at him. When he turns he sees that Ant King is hit by a snowball too. Both look at each other confused, who threw the snowballs? They seemed to be thrown from behind a pile of snow, but when they go around it to see, there’s no one there.

Heffanutt feel chills all over, not only from the cold outside but from a feeling inside too. As in silent agreement they both walk fast inside, wondering what invisible can throw snow.

The warm cosy house soon calms them down, Ant King has got one of his bottles from the basement.  Heffanutt is very curious what he is drinking, and in an unseen moment he smells it – it smells nice and fruity – and then he have to taste it too. Mmmm nice, and his tummy feels so good and warm now… Just a little sip more… ooohhh what`s that… he suddenly becomes a little gigly, and a bit dizzy too.. Ant King comes in, and he is so angry at Heffanutt for drinking his drink. Heffanutt can`t help it he have to giggle a little more… Ant King is fun when angry, he hasen`t seen that before.  The world goes round and round, and suddenly he`s in his bed, wonder how he got there… giggle.. And then the night comes with sleep…

Heffanutt and Ant King have forgotten the argument from yesterday. The excitement of Christmas has filled the boys with joy and laughter. They found a slippery path while walking to the grocery (to buy more sugar) and just couldn`t resist.  Heffanutt is usually a very careful creature, and don`t like to take any chances, but now he suddenly jumps into it. He runs after Ant King and starts to slide, weeeeeeeeeeeee…… how fun!!

It`s the 2nd of December already, where did the 1th go?

The 1st of December is finally here, and the month of Christmas begins. The month starts with a little bit of secrecy. Ant King has tiptoed down to the basement, hoping that no one will follow him. He thinks there`s no proper Christmas without his homebrew. Ant King is looking thoughtfully through all the ingredients.  But where is the sugar? He was certain he had a pack of it on the shelf.  Rather unpleased he walks upstairs to confront Heffanutt. Ant King doesn`t want anyone to disturb him while he is working and no one is allowed to interfere in the brewing process. So why have Heffanutt taken the sugar?

Heffanutt insists he hasn’t touched any sugar, not even walked nowhere near the brewing room.  Ant King is sure he is lying, who else could have taken it, it is only him and Heffanutt living here. A bit annoyed he grabs a pack of sugar in the kitchen and walks back to the basement again.

Heffanutt a bit bewildered, knowing he hasn’t done anything wrong, wondering why he was accused. Ant King must have put it somewhere else and forgot.

The moment you are just a little tiny creature in a big, big universe. All the billions of stars shining down on you, making you gaze back in awe and wonder…

It`s been calm a couple of days, and Heffanutt dares to walk outside in the dark, with Ant King close by of course.
