Snow Day!!!

Today was a snow day. And even better, it was a Friday snow day. Really now, is there anything more fun than a snow day when you're a kid? I don't think so!!

Our neighbor Riley came over in the morning, and the girls started sledding first thing. Before long, the Henny Penny's were sledding along with them!

Here's how country girls spend a snow day!!

Then it was on to snowman making. . .
I love the snow hat!

They had lunch, and afterwards the chickens had some more fun with the girls:

And then they all made Snow Ice Cream.

1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
4 cereal bowls of clean snow
Warm the milk, vanilla and sugar (so sugar will melt) on the stove top.
Put that into a container in the fridge or out in the snow to cool. When cool, it's time for Snow Ice Cream!

Put 4 cereal bowls full of clean snow into a big mixing bowl:

Add the cream, sugar and vanilla.

Stir, stir, stir. . .

Smile for your crazy camera mommy. . .

. . .and come in the house for the first taste. All three girls had a pajama day. That's always cozy fun!


Snow days are so much fun, and I always try to make them really special. Don't you wish you could come over to play too?!


  1. I always have a huge smile as I enjoy your pictures of the girls and the feathered girls. It helps when the background is so pretty with all that snow falling. We have not had any snow this year, much to my daughters annoyance. :0)

    1. I'm so glad you liked it Gordon. I feel for your little girl. Although we have gotten a little snow for the season, it has been NOTHING compared to "normal" years. My girls have been really discouraged. We usually exceed our snow day allowance and need to make days up at the end of the year. We are far from it this year though with only 2 snow days. Hopefully your daughters will get at least something worthy before the season is gone.

  2. It looks like they had a lot of fun that day. Thank you for sharing!

    1. They had a great day Rebecca. As usual, I love to share. ツ

  3. These pictures are great! I woke up to like a half inch of snow this morning but better then nothing I guess! I would love to have a "real" snow day, and I do make snow ice cream too. Have Fun!!!

    1. How fun that you make snow ice cream too! My girls LOVE making it. It is a tradition that is done every winter. This winter, we have not had much opportunity due to lack of good snowfall accumulations but we will do it as long as the snow is deep enough!
