In the picture above, Claire is trying to make her way into our playhouse in the back yard. You might remember how it looked a couple of posts back before we got all this new snow.
With the snow, we also received a nasty dose of cold weather. It only finally warmed up this week and holey moley, we even got some sunshine! I hadn’t realized how much I missed it.
With an abundance of the white stuff, the kids asked if we could make snow cream. I learned about snow cream from my friend Paige last year. We enjoyed it so much last year that the kids have kept the memory of it alive all year.
They like to each have their own batch to whip up so each kid got 5 cups of snow, 1/2 cup of milk, 1/2 cup of white sugar and a bit of vanilla.
Since they enjoy doing all the work so much themselves, they then spooned their servings into their personalized ice cream bowls (a gift from a close friend). And then, it was time to dig in!
Is it a little cold, Ren?!
