 It’s been a SNOW FESTIVAL all this week! With all the white stuff on the ground and the kids off of school, might as well celebrate, right?
This week kicked off my super-fun-book-filled Snow Festival here at JIAB. In case you missed it, here’s a recap:
Snow Festival Day 1:
 Blizzard is a true life account of the Blizzard of 1978 and what followed for author John Rocco.

Plus: Homemade Snow Cream
