Rose's First Snow
Rose woke up and was she ever surprised. It
was her first snow. She had always lived in places
that were warm and no snow. She had Amanda
to stay overnight and Amanda was sleeping so
sound. Summer Rose shook her to wake up and
look out the window. Amanda smiled, she had
seen snow before but she knew Summer Rose hadn't.
Rose just wanted to sit in front of the window and
look out. Amanda had spent the night with Summer
Rose and she had seen snow many times and even
been out in it so she just watched Summer Rose's
eyes watch each flake.
watched as the flakes fell to the ground. Amanda
said, you know I read somewhere that no two snow
flakes are just alike. Summer Rose was so
surprised. Oh, how could that be, there must
be millions of them. Lets open the window
just a little Amanda said, we'll look at a few of
them. So they pushed and pushed but couldn't.
Rose ran and got her Mom, and ask her please to
let them look for a few minutes to see if they
could find one just alike. Marie laughed and
said okay. She unlocked the window and
opened it just a little so the snow flakes would
fall inside. But it seemed as if soon as they
landed they were gone. "Why is
that?" Summer Rose asked.
Marie said, "honey, when they get warm they
melt and are gone. We'll put some in a bowl and
put them in the freezer and you girls can look at
them later on." "Oh can we
also have some of those ice icicles too?"
Mom had put them in the freezer many times for
later on in the summer, the kids loved it
especially in the summer time.
sure, I don't see why not." so she
reached as far as she could and got a few and
hurried to the freezer to put them in. She
put them in a freezer bag and told the girls,
"now this summer you'll have something to
remember your first snow by."
asked Summer's Mom if they could go out and play
in the snow.
not sure," said Marie, "let me
check and see how cold it is." Well it
was just to cold to go out so she said, "I
know, we'll make home made ice cream."
happy they both were, they wanted to do all they
could to help.
said, "I'll have to go out and get some fresh
a big bowl and told the girls to get cream and
vanilla and eggs out of the fridge while she went
out to get the fresh snow.
she went out she reached into the cupboard and got
the sugar, the girls looked at each other, they
giggled, they knew Marie didn't like for them to
have sugar, they were to hyper already.
Marie had to read direction on how to make home
made ice cream because she had not seen very much
told the girls they could mix it and they would
have to follow direction carefully.
laughed and giggled and then they wanted to make
such a nice day and to have Amanda over, that was
was another friend that Summer Rose had met.
She knew that Amanda was going to be friends with
her and Delaney.
girls made their snow ice cream and some hot
chocolate and Marie took a few pictures of them
sat in front of the window and drew pictures and
colored in their books. They were very
content now, their tummies full of home made ice
cream and hot chocolate,
Summer Rose made
Amanda laugh by saying, "wonder how long it
will take for summer to be here so we can take
the icicles out of the freezer?"
