Snow Days

Living in the South, we don’t see snow as much as we did in D.C. The girls are so happy for just the couple inches that we get each year. 3″ didn’t yield a lot of depth but the good times were endless.

And we made Snow Candy.

The snow cream was easy to make. A half stick of butter, a cup of maple syrup (augmented with a little corn syrup b/c we didn’t have enough); boil until it thickens; drizzle onto snow. It hardens up quickly.

Snow Candy

Delicious, crunchy toffee.

Hope you had fun with any snow that you got, too!

Snow play

We had our first snow since October. Today’s actually stuck. This southern girl is ready for Spring, but the girls enjoyed it.

Here’s hoping for warmer temps tomorrow!
