I tried to get the snow falling in the background. It's not big flakes, but it's showering down.
Not exactly a pretty photo, but a better perspective on how much we have!
We even have enough snow to make the family favorite... SNOW CREAM!
Do you make Snow Cream? My husband thinks it's unhealthy to eat snow because of "acid rain". Bwahahahaha! I told him there had not been talk of acid rain since 1976, but his mom told him that 30 years ago and he's still convinced that eating snow will kill you!
We fill a bowl with snow, mix in a healthy heaping portion of sugar and a little milk and a little coffee creamer and voila.... snow cream. Better than any ice cream you ever tasted. I have made one health modification to the family recipe... my mom used to mix in a raw egg and vanilla, but I think it's probably best that my kids don't eat the raw egg now and it grosses me out anyway. Plus my creamer is French Vanilla so you get the thickness and flavor in one fell swoop. (Is it "fell" or "fail"?)
Liam has gone to visit a friend. Jack too. Connor is across the street playing. Meg and I are in sweats on the couch, eating snow cream, listening to the fire crackle and watching our 107th episode of Max and Ruby. (Where are their parents, by the way? Is this elementary school child rabbit really raising her younger brother? Why aren't they living with their grandmother, who clearly loves them? Why hasn't anyone called the authorities? Does anyone else think about these things when they watch cartoons? Like why has Caillou's mom been pregnant for 20 years? And why does Caillou's dad always wear a sweater and long pants, even when Caillous is in shorts and a T-shirt? :) Oh no, the cabin fever has already driven me over the edge.....
