When Life Gives You Ridiculously Cold Temperatures That Only Exist in Movies Where The People Eat Each Other...

...make snow ice cream. The hip alternative to cannibalism.

(Yes, the rumors are true. Sometimes Mommy stays in her p.j.s and never fixes her hair or puts on makeup.)

Brownies are the perfect complement to the snow.

Daddies can play with the leftover snow.

As long as they're copasetic with the destruction that will quickly ensue.

SNOW ICE CREAM (a tradition passed to our family from Carla's)
1 can evaporated milk
1/2 cup sugar
4 tsp vanilla
-Mix ingredients together and add a small amount of snow to chill the mixture. Stir into a large bowl of snow and enjoy!

What fun pictures! We used to make snow ice cream, too. But I didn't have a fancy recipe, so it probably just tasted like snow. :) I love the little snowman you made, and the happy looks on my grandchildren's faces. :)

I'm glad you found something else to do besides eating each other.

I must first say a big YUCK! Every time it snowed when I was @ the Dossey's as a kid, I would try a bite thinking, "Maybe I'll like it this time..." NOPE! Never did! :)

Secondly, I wanted to say that I'm very, very proud of you for putting on the no make-up picture. I know that you struggled with that decision. :)

Third, copasetic...really? *grin* You're too funny!
