Well, the storm hit and we ended up with about 7 inches of snow. We can't tell exactly because we have strong winds that have caused Big drifts. Either way, it is enough for the boys to have a BALL! After lunch we all bundled up and headed out. Hubby cleared the walk and driveway while the boys tried sledding down the hill in our front yard. Later on we all went out back. Hubby wanted to get a few pics of our pond with all the snow covering. He was in such a hurry to get back there that he missed the BEST and FUNNIEST moment that we should have caught on video and/or pictures. R was following all of us, moving at his usual slow pace.....and he started calling for us. I turned and saw him waist deep in a snow drift. He was stuck and yelling"Help! I cant make it! Help!" It was darned cute! So I went and helped him out and we met Hubby back by the pond. After that we (except Hubby who still had some shoveling to do) went in the house to get warm. This is the first time the boys didn't want Hot Chocolate after we came in, and I still don't know why. When Hubby was done working outside I sent him back out to get a big bowl full of snow to make Snow Ice Cream.
R was too busy watching an Elmo movie (and too tired to move) to help us. So J and I mixed and stirred and made the yummy frozen treat. Turns out only me and J ate the stuff too. Hubby said it was too sweet. And R stayed laying on the couch and had no interest in getting up for something cold, lol.
I thought it was pretty tasty....especially after it melted just a little bit. It was similar to Ice Milk, if you have ever had that. Yum!
