What better thing to do today than build a Snowman. The girls got out of school early and went straight outside to play in the snow. I told them to build a snowman but they couldn't figure out how to get the snow to roll. I went out side and helped them and we made a pretty cute snowman. The hat and accessories my mom made and gave to us for Christmas a few years ago and this is the first time that we have had enough snow to actually use them. the girls had a blast. When I was sitting in the hospital in December I saw a pin on Pinterest about making ice cream from snow. I pinned it and didn't really think that I would actually make it but today was the day. I put a bowl outside in the morning and collected snow in it all day. Tonight we made the ice cream and it was really easy.
I mixed a 1/2 cup of milk, 1/4 cup sugar, and 1/4 tsp of vanilla together.
Then I added the snow and food coloring. I used about 3 cups of snow and mixed it in making sure to not mix it to much or it was runny, this did happen so I added more snow.
It worked out great and actually tasted pretty good. Megan liked it a little more than Ashlynn but we all ate it.
Hopefully there is more snow tomorrow.

Vintage Jars

I needed to do a little decorating for a luncheon this week. I had NO time available to come up with something. As I tried to rack my brain of something simple, easy, and cute--I had a hard time. So, about Tuesday--I remember these jars which I've seen floating around on Pinterest. I think they're really cute! So, I grabbed some Mason jars, pink and white paint. Gave the jars a couple coats of paint, sanded a little, and threw some daisies inside. I Love how they turned out. So simple, but very cute.
