Madison here! I woke up this morning to my little brother yelling, “MADISON! WAKE UP IT’S SNOWING! AND IT’S NOT JUST SLEETING, IT’S ACTUALLY SNOWING! REAL SNOW! DAD SAYS SO!!! WAKE UP, WAKE UP!”
I bolted out of bed (no matter how much I wanted to stay under the warmth of the covers, no matter how tired I was, no matter how groggy my eyes were…etc…) I ran right up to the kitchen window, and sure enough! Snowing! White, beautiful snow! Everywhere! On the roof, on the ground, whirling in the air! Finally, a snow wish come true. Last year for Christmas we only got sleetish icey stuff. But snow! Wonderful white, flaky snow! I was so overjoyed. Right away I knew I had to take my dolls out to get some pictures. I’m going to hand it over to Molly now and she’ll tell you how it happened…. 🙂
I was SO excited! Snow!! I LOVED snow so much and like you’ve probably heard we only got sleet and ice last year. And it wasn’t even on Christmas. (we weren’t too bummed though. After all, we had a miracle from God.) But now it was snowing! I jumped in my boots and threw on my coat over my PJ’s, not caring if I was dressed in normal clothes or not!
“What?” I asked, pulling on my mittens. (the three little kittens, they lost their mittens…sorry, just couldn’t help myself. That thing is so funny.)
But it didn’t work. Not as fun.
I was REALLY discouraged by now. No icy patches. The snow looked fun, but I really wanted to skate on some ice. Finally mom said, “Molly, come here!” I came over to her. There was snow on all the slide. She cleared it all out, and then..
“THANK YOU MOM!” I cried.
I skated a bit. It was so fun! Then I had snowball fights with Jasmine and Cécile…and made a floppy snowgirl….and made more snow angels….Until we were so cold we HAD to go inside! Mom had a treat for us – fresh snow with vanilla extract on top. A family favorite! A perfect way to start the morning. With a snow day!
****DISCLAIMER**** – Madison here. DO NOT put your dolls in the snow. I did it for one quick pretty photo but all my dolls were really wet and snow was all in their faces and hair. I dried them off as quick as I could. Still, taking your dolls out with you in the snow should be ok – but be EXTRA careful with them!
