welcome to our farmhouse…life is good

how to "guarantee" a snow day...

1 - jammies on backward? check.
2 - dark outside? check.
3 - ready to dance in the snow?  check.
4 - most importantly, camera ready?  check.

The photos tell it all...dancing, snowball throwing, pure joy!

And so, if you're wondering, is there any truth
to this "teacher's tale?" (see last night's post)

This is today's announcement on the school website...

School District is closed due to the road conditions.

Whee ha! And so after a chocolate chip pancake breakfast, we'll be making snow ice cream. This is a yummy tradition we look forward to each winter. It's so easy to make and is delicious!

Snow Ice Cream
1 c. heavy whipping cream
4 c. perfectly clean snow
sugar and vanilla extract to taste

Beat whipping cream with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form; fold in snow. Blend on medium speed; add sugar and vanilla to taste. Serve immediately. Makes about 6 servings.
