Mommy When’s It Gonna Snow?

My 4 yr old loves the snow so much she asked Santa for snow boots for Christmas!  And do you think she has gotten to use them?  Well technically not for snow but they make an awesome fashion statement with the right tutu!  We dont get snow around here like we used to!  I remember when I was little it would snow and you would be out of school for days!  Now we are out because of ice!  What fun is that?!  There was this great big hill behind my great grandparents house in teh cow pasture that we would ride our sleds down all day long until we couldn’t feel our toes anymore!  Then we’d snuggle in a blanket after going in side and watch Thundercats and eat Snow Cream!  It would also snow so much that many people didn’t get out and drive so we could sled down the road in front of my Aunts house.  My uncles would get out the tractors and pack the snow down on the road then off we would go.  Those were the days!!!  Now you’re a lucky if you get enough to make a snowball!  So i’m hopeing it snows this winter for her sake, just to use those snow boots that Santa brought!  Although it being almost 70 today, i’m not holding my breath but rather thanking God she love to dress up in those boots!

OH I almost forgot here’s an adapted recipe for snow cream.  You used to put an egg in it but who wants to eat raw eggs?! Gross!!!!

Snow Cream

 1 cup of milk

½ cup of sugar

½ tspn vanilla

Mix together then add snow to desired thickness.  We also will add chocolate syrup or m&ms……maybe crushed up cookies too.
