Snow Cones

What do you do when it's too cold to play outside? Make snow cones!! Adam and the girls went to Menards last weekend and when they got home they had a short snowball fight with the new snow that had fallen. I asked them to bring in a snowball. (Sneaky Mom's way of getting them in the house!)

We took their snowballs and drizzled grenadine on top... instant snow cones!

Brrr... cold. It's an ice cream headache.

Lily is ever so happy with her snow cone. Addie on the other hand decided that she likes white snow best.

You might notice that Lily has two different placemats in front of her. I thought I'd mix things up a bit and let them swap placemats. Oh no, my OCD youngest child threw an absolute fit because she didn't have the Dora mat. That is her mat. Never have I seen a child who has to have certain things just so.

Very cute! You shouldn't make fun of people that don't handle change well...

I'm excited to see you guys tomorrow!

Wow! The girls' personalities are so different....Top picture: Addie being a ham, Lily in the background properly eating (ewven holding her fork the right way!)

I hope it was fresh snow...what next, making snow candy like Ma did in Little House in the Big Woods (I do have the recipe...)
