With temps in the mid-60s and a light rain over the past couple of days, I'm willing to put a stake in the ground and say we're not having a white Christmas. It could happen still, but the odds are probably one in ten bazillion. (Math and statistics have always been my strong suite so you can trust my probability prediction. Right mom?)
Since we're not getting snow, I decided to make some snow for the kids to play with. Not nearly as fun as the real stuff, but also not nearly as cold as the real stuff. And, instead of putting on layers of clothes, I stripped my boys down to undershirts.
Oh yes, the snow recipe: a bag of flour and a bottle of baby oil. That's it. The flour absorbs the oil and takes the dust away without making the flour clumpy or greasy.
When they were finished playing, they stripped their clothes in the kitchen so the mess didn't spread, and after a two-minute broom job, my kitchen was back to normal.
