Who knew

Wow! 
What a crazy winter we have had here in Texas! 
Last week our public schools were closed for FOUR days! 
C.R.A.Z.Y.

Ice storms galore - 
and finally on the fourth day we got some snow!

And were able to play in this,
make this guy,
(nothing like a snowman with Chips Ahoy eyes and a carrot mohawk! -
Like Conner's new haircut?)

...
and make some snow ice cream.
 8 cups of clean snow
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
Mix milk and vanilla in snow and serve immediately.


This was a first for us -
 and let me tell you -

YUM!!!

And lots of smiles!!

And another ice/snow day today!

We've made snowcones and snow margaritas, but we've never attempted snow ice cream with all our lovely white stuff. Thanks for the inspiration!
