I was freezing! I pulled the blanket tighter around me. Then I see a small snowflake fall down from the sky. It reminds me of little crystals on sparkling wedding rings. I call to Mamma if I can go outside. She says, "Ye-es! Dress warmly!" I button up my coat, pull on my snow pants and boots, and run outside! I see the snow dance gracefully down to the ground, like little white ballerinas twirling and spinning on stage. I hold out my tongue trying to catch one. The smallest snowflake fluters down to my tongue. As soon as I close my mouth, I jump into the soft cushiony mattress of snow. I roll around and make snowmen. I do this until supper. Then my Mamma calls me inside. I see a cup of hot cocoa sitting at my seat!
