It snowed on Saturday and we are going on day 2 of schools being closed, day 3 tomorrow! The main roads are fine but the neighborhoods and side streets are a sheet of ice.
It was really cold, like in the 20's so the outside play time is quite limited with little kids. Kinley did get out a few times and Zander got out long enough for me to get a few pictures. It will be fun when the kids are old enough to go sledding or stay outside longer than it takes to bundle them up :).
Since we didn't get a lot of outside time and we were stuck inside for almost 3 days we had to be creative with things to do. You know Kinley loves ice cream; so we made snow cream! It was a huge hit and pretty tasty. Super easy to make!
Snow Cream Recipe
1 can of condensed milk (if you don't have condensed milk you can use sugar and milk: 1 cup milk and a 1/2 cup of sugar)
6-8 cups of snow (enough to get it to an ice cream consistency)
1 tsp of vanilla
Mix the vanilla with the condensed milk in a bowl. Once mixed together stir in snow until you get to an ice cream consistency.
