This past Sunday we got some snow. While everyone was excited about it I was not (Cold + wet = not a very happy mama!) But I also knew that this might just be the last snowfall we will get to to play in for a very long time as we are headed back to Hawaii this summer.
Sunday afternoon the snow started.
By midnight it was looking like this:
When I woke up I have to admit - it was beautiful outside.
Unfortunately for me the girls were ready to go out almost immediately. While getting them dressed I was quickly reminded of just how long it takes to get everyone bundled up. By the time both girls were dressed I was ready for a nap! But in the end it was worth it - the girls had a lot of fun.
Okay, maybe it wasn't fun the whole time. This is exactly how I felt:
While in the snow I remembered my father telling me about his mom making "snow cream" for him and his brothers when they were kids. I thought I'd try it out. Here's the recipe:
1/2 cup milk
2-3 drops of vanilla
1-3 cups clean snow (like I really needed to put "clean" lol)
Mix the first three ingredients together. Slowly add snow to desired consistency.
Ours ended up being more like a drink - I used two cups of snow. I think it would've been much better if eaten like shaved ice. I just didn't want to go back out into the snow to get more!
