Oh My Goodness - More Snow!!

Holy global warming Batman! Two serious snows in one Winter?!? Thank goodness friends handed down to Clay some snow bibs last week ... they are put to use! It's been coming down about 2 hrs and already a couple inches accumulation. I got my work done, so now I can relax, open a homebrew and enjoy the view :)

I don't think I've posted any pictures of this new place yet - here's our sweet little house we've been in for about a month now:

Looking down the road:

Clay built a chilly chair:

Reed making homebrew pictures in the snow (heck no, I don't let him dump out homebrew! This was the one bottle of the batch that he completely bottled and labeled himself, so he got to do as he wished with it :)
Stay warm under your snowy blanket, sweet rosemary!

Reed's project for the morning was using every Duplo he could find to build a tower (he took about a dozen pics of this)
I'm sure as this snow continues into the night we'll have more pictures to share. Supposed to get 5-9 inches tonight.

And now the boys are inside and shivering and waiting for hot cocoa water to boil. Here's a frugal recipe for ya:
**Hot Cocoa Mix**
  • 10 cups dry milk powder (1 8 qt package)
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1-3/4 cups cocoa powder (we like SaCo's Dutch Cocoa)
  • 1-3/4 cups powder creamer (6 oz jar)
  • 3-4 heaping Tbs. cinnamon
Mix this all up in your biggest mixing bowl. Store in glass jar or gallon ziplock bag. To use: scoop 1/4 cup mix into mug. Add enough milk to moisten mix (this isn't necessary, we just like it extra creamy). Fill to top of mug with hot water. Kids like to top with ice cream, marshmallows, or various peppermint candies if we've got 'em!
