Surprise Snowstorm!

Nothing like snow in the South! Today, we had almost 3 inches of snow fall in a very short period of time. I'm so thankful that my children are homeschooled and were able to enjoy it this morning. By this afternoon when the school kids were finally sent home early, a lot of it had already melted. The kids built their biggest snowman ever, went sledding, and then came inside for some hot chocolate to warm up. Later in the morning we made snow cream for the first time. It was YUMMY and super simple!

Snow Cream recipe according to Paula Dean

8 cups clean, freshly fallen snow
1 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix thoroughly and enjoy immediately as it doesn't freeze well.

  1. Oh, yum! Snow cream! I haven't had any since 1993. Yes, I remember it that specifically.

    Crossing your collective fingers must have worked because you won the Magnificent Marine Life lapbooking kit from Egghead Academics and Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers! Congratulations! Email through the contact tab on my blog and I'll get your info to the folks at Egghead.
