We found out last night that school was cancelled, so we didn't even have to get up to check....YEA!!! Here are a few pictures of our fun this morning---we held Joshua off as long as we could---until 8:16!!! Finally David and I got ready and played in the snow with Joshua!!
Snow for Snow Cream.....hmmmmm!
Snow Cream Recipe
1 mixing bowl of fresh (white!) snow (I used two of these 8 cup Gladware containers)
3/4 c. milk
3/4-1 c. sugar (or Splenda to taste)
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix well with a mixer---add Chocolate Syrup for Hannah!!
Serve immediately in front of the fire!
Oh yeah, the real deal---fresh snow cream--
Joshua, with hat head, having some snow cream---it was his "dairy" with his breakfast---hey, like I said, it doesn't snow here very often!!! :)
And, lastly, I cannot let this historic day pass without acknowledging it. I wish I had the eloquence of my husband. Politics and papercrafting/family blogs do not often go hand in hand, but please indulge me today. One of the reasons I was so excited that we didn't have school today is because I really did want to watch the Inauguration today. I didn't vote for President Obama and we likely wouldn't see eye to eye on most issues, but I can't NOT be proud of this peaceful transfer of power we get to see in our country. I am proud that our country has voted in an African American president--it's time. I will pray for and support our new president because I think that is part of my responsibility as a citizen and a Christian. So, I won't be commenting here about what's going on with this administration, but you can bet I'll be praying for strength and courage and safety for this new president and his family. I'm as proud today to be an American as I have been on January 20, 2001 or 2005. It's a good day in America----even if you aren't a democrat. Have a blessed day~
