It is February 1st today! Yahoo!!!! That means bad old, dreary, long, cold, miserable January is gone for another whole year! That makes me a happy lady. Plus I love February.
February is such a fun month. It is filled with birthdays and Valentine's Day (and that means chocolate covered strawberries for MEEEEEeeeee!!!) and the Superbowl! It is a nice, short, little month that makes me feel spring isn't far away. Every time I think about February red and pink immediately pop into my head. It makes me feel so warm and fuzzy. I love February.
And today for a special treat we are part of the massive snowstorm that is sweeping the nation. The school district called for an early release day today and already cancelled school tomorrow. Yippee!!! I love snow days! It may be too cold to actually play out in the snow for very long but we'll manage to find some fun anyway. Movies and popcorn and a nice, cozy fire. Oooooo. Oh! And snow ice cream! Have you made it? We will definitely be making some tomorrow. It's easy peasy and a sure-fire treat that will really get your kiddos excited.
Snow Ice Cream
4 to 5 cups snow
1/2 cup powder sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup milk
Mix the milk and vanilla together and add the powdered sugar and snow. Tada! Easy! Add little spinkles to the top or chocolate syrup. It's awesome!
Ahhhh, February. Thank you for coming. I'm so glad your here.
