This winter, we’ve gotten lots of snow days. And it snowed again yesterday, about 6-8 inches. School has been cancelled two days in a row and while I’m kind of bored, I’m glad that I have so much extra time to work on blog posts.
Anyway, Ivy is going to show you how to have the perfect snow day. Enjoy! :)
Step #1: Wake up and realize that something is different. The light coming in through the window is too bright and someone’s let you sleep through the start of school.
Step #2: Sit up so fast you get dizzy and peek through the blinds. It’s so white out there and the window is cold against your hand. It’s snowed overnight!
Step #3: Snap a low-quality photo with your phone and upload it to the internet, where your friends have already posted dozens of similar pictures. Don’t forget to put snowflake emojis in the caption.
Step #4: Scramble out of bed and dig your heavy winter clothes out of the closet. Acknowledge that your ensemble doesn’t match at all, but it doesn’t really matter as long as you’re warm.
Step #5: Make sure to grab your camera before heading outdoors. What’s the point of venturing into the wilderness without a way to document it?
Step #6: Bounce around in the fresh snow until your head starts to hurt from the light and you get snow in your boots. Run back inside to warm up.
Step #7: Decide that you should do a photoshoot with one of your dolls. Instead of going to get a doll yourself, yell for someone to bring one to you, using “I have snow on my shoes!” as an excuse. Keep hollering until one of your sleepy siblings gives you a doll just to shut you up.
Step #8: Shout some more because your sister, who hasn’t bothered to memorize your dolls’ names, has brought the wrong one. Order her to go get the correct doll.
Step #9: Repeat steps 7-8 until you’re holding the doll you asked for in the first place.
Step #10: Cautiously set up your $100 doll in the snow and photograph her until your fingers start to freeze. Discover that you like looking at snow more than being in it.
Step #11: When your doll inevitably topples over onto her face, scream and rush over to her while worrying that she’ll get silver eye.
Step #12: Take all your gear back inside. Once you’re sure that the doll is safe, shed your coat and make some hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows.
Step #13: Change back into your pajamas and spend the rest of the day ignoring your homework, editing the pictures you took, and staying warm in your bed.
