a snow day and some snow cream

On Wednesday we had the loveliest of snow days.  Brian (who is usually so cautious about getting too excited about snow days) was so sure school was going to get called off, he brought home cinnamon rolls the day before and told Levi we were going to bake them for our snow day breakfast. We slept in, oohed and aahhhed at the pretty snow, stayed in our jammies, ate freshly baked cinnamon rolls, snuggled, read lots of books, made a snow turtle and snow cave and cooked yummy meals. After Levi's quiet time (which ended up being a nap..woohoo!), I promised him we'd make ice cream out of snow.  Anything snow, cooking or sugar related is quite exciting to him, so it was a huge success.  Believe me, that last funny-faced picture is actually utter happiness. :)

(We mixed 4 cups of snow with 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 cup of milk, then we poured a little maple syrup on top..mmm!)
