Whoosh! Whoosh! I could hear whistling coming from outside. I could see the snow dancing from all the wind. It was so windy I could feel a draft coming from the window being just a crack open. So, I cuddled in my blankets and got so nice and cozy. I laid in my bed thinking about what I was going to do tomorrow. Then, all of a sudden, the window opens and I get a blast of Alaska feeling ice cold air. It was so cold, it felt like someone just dumped a big bucked of ice cold water right on me! I ran to the window and shut it. And right when I got there, the street lights turned on.
Then I had just enough light to see my snowman, but then I saw my snowman move a little bit. I think I'm just tired. I must be, snowmen don't move. So, I started to walk to my bed and in the corner of my eye I could see my snowman move again! I put my eyes right on the snowman's eyes and he winked at me! O.k. I did not just see my snowman wink at me. Then he winked at me again!
I grabbed my jacket and slipped into my snow boots and quietly opened the front door. I peeked at my snowman with the door opened just a crack, and it didn't move an inch. So, I took a step outside, took a deep, deep breath, and started walking over to my snowman. As I was observing my snowman, I heard a voice. It was very close. But then I heard, "Hello" and saw that my snowman was talking to me. In a weird way I said "hello" back, or if you want to be honest, I said "right back at you." So after a couple of seconds my mind was still blank. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know what to say. Then, he spoke and said, "You don't have to be so weird, did you know that?" Ok, yes I did. So I, the great one, told him no need to be rude. Then I asked him, do you want to go to the neighborhood snowball fight. He replied, "Let's dominate! I like snowball fights!" It was so exciting, me and the snowman were on the same team and he was throwing like a machine gun. He was throwing the snowballs so fast that you couldn't even see where they were going. He probably got everybody ten times each. It was a blast. We love snowball fights.
On our way back, we saw a hockey rink and couldn't resist not going in. We were getting our skates on and I asked him, "Are you ready?" and he replied, "Never been more ready than right now." But I was like, you don't even have the skates on. Then, they magically appeared on his feet. We grabbed our hockey sticks and jumped right in the game. I scored six goals and he scored seven goals. Then we left and got snow cones. Both of us really had a good time.
So, then we went home. He went where he was before, and I went up to my room where I watched as the sun rose high in the sky, the beautiful pink shaded sun. I saw my snowman form into a regular snowman, and before he formed, he winked at me. Then he didn't move again.
When everybody woke up and at breakfast, I made another snowman. I can't wait for tonight. I can almost picture the fun things I'm going to do with my two snowmen. I will always remember my first snowman.
