A Snowman in Hawaii?

It’s snowing, there’s no school, and you’re sitting at home wondering what to do. This is how I felt last Wednesday when I went downstairs and discovered the exciting news, no school today! As I sat at home wondering what to do a brilliant idea struck me. I have a friend who lives in Texas and they practically never get snow. I thought, “What if I make a snowman just for her!” I quickly proceeded to get all of my ski gear on. I swung open the back door to a winter wonderland in fall! I trudged through the snow and sat down, picking up a handful of it I started to form a snowball. This small snowball soon progressed in to three large balls of snow, that when stuck together formed a snowman. I glanced at the yard; all around where I had rolled the snow the glorious winter wonderland had been turned in to a much used thin layer of snow. “Oh well,” I thought, “it’s still snowing, and maybe it’ll come back.” After that, I went inside. I took off my snow boots and went in to the kitchen to grab a carrot and some black and red beans. Setting these near the door I went downstairs to the costume closet and gathered some supplies. I set these down next to the other necessities to make a snowman. Next, I sprinted upstairs and collected some other ingredients. Lastly, I grabbed a camera and a rag to keep it from getting to wet. After all of these supplies were gathered I ran outside with the carrot and beans, with these I made the face of a classic snowman, not forgetting the sticks for arms. Slipping inside I grabbed the camera to take a picture. Next, I took a grass skirt and lei out, these created the Hawaiian snowman. Third, Imade a skiing snowman with poles and everything! This led to the random snowman in a Santa hat. After all of this I went indoors and wrote a letter with the pictures included to my friend. This is just one of the many fun activities you can do on a snow day, make an igloo, have a snowball fight, or go sledding. Enjoy!!
