You Scream! I Scream!

WE all scream for SNOW CREAM!  

(And just you nevermind expecting another ut-oh Donna's lost it again with those crazy twins a'hers post!)

'Mah Daddy (Gawd rest his soul) sent us another whopper of a snow storm!  And on what would have been his and Momma's (a.k.a Nonnie's) 44th Wedding Anniversary.  It's no mere coincidence....they're wedding day story went down in family history as folks braved an already 17 inches of white fluff on the ground and all during the ceremony and reception, the wind howled and the snow just kept a'coming for a record breaking blizzard of 1966 (Richmond).  Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad!  And thanks again for the snow, Dad!

While waiting for others to pack down this weekend's snow and make it sledd-able, I introduced the boys to SNOW CREAM! 

We cook together all the time, so they thought it was just too funny when I said,
"Step 1:  Go get 3 cups of (non-yellow) snow!"

And of course, with 4 boys, Momma has to sneak her "crafting" in when I can,
so I pulled out the Candy Dots for decorating! 

hmmm, hmmm good!

(And we tucked a way a little in the freezer, for a nice little summa'time treat!)

My twin's maiden voyage into the SNOW CREAM tradition Makes My Monday! 
Play along with Cheryl and others on Twinfatuation!

Now that looks like fun! Do you actually flavor the snow? Sorry, asking from a snow -less Africa.

darn you finding a use for those cute DOTS!! I pulled the recipe off the internet but didn't make it yet so don't tell Van!! Love this snow just wish we could sled over to you.

That looks like so much fun...I've never heard of snow cream before. Well, probably because it doesn't snow here. Love the idea of putting the dots on them!

Hannah said...

That is so cute! I love it :) They are the cutest little bundles of love ever!!

Steph said...

I love this! How fun! I should do this with pea as he is ALWAYS eating the snow.

I need to remmeber that next time it snows here. Though, I think you all have more snow than us this year!! It's been cold and very little snow. But, my kids will love that.

I loved the bike video. I am amazed at how they ride bikes and scotters!! So glad they are keeping the lawn watered

Now I am REALLY hoping for that secondary storm this weekend...snow cream is a first for me. :)

Love you, Donna, and am so thinking of you and your family----peace and love to you all.
