Mom, come see. Look the trees are dipping silver threads!
Looks like your wish came true. Soon you will be able to use your new skates!
I’m so looking forward to it. Thank you God!
But I can’t go check those far shacks now.
Mom, come see. There are icicles on the trees!
Oh no. My worst nightmare has come true. How are we going to manage!
They look pretty! Look on the bright side. They will be too busy skating to come and chase us out!
Hope so. Thank God for small mercies!
