Fun With Snow

Tania In A Winter Wonderland

“Mama, look outside. Mama look! Sonia look!” The seven year old Tania shouted in excitement, as she looked out of her first floor bedroom window. It was 2:30 pm. She and her family had only just arrived at a cottage in Shimla,
that her parents had booked for the winter holidays.

“What’s up Tania?” Mama asked, making her way to the window.

“Its snowing Mama.” Tania said, unable to tear herself away from the mesmerising sight. It was the first time she had seen the white flakes descend from the sky.

Mama put her arm around Tania and smiled. “It’s beautiful isn’t it? And everything becomes so quiet when it snows.”

Three year old, baby Sonia, was helping Papa unpack in the living room on the ground floor. She came running as fast as her little legs could carry her, as soon as she heard her sister, Tania, call.

“What happened?” Her eyes were wide with excitement, as she entered the bedroom.

“Look Sonia. It’s snowing.” Tania said, helping Sonia on to the window ledge, so she could see.

“Snow. Snow!” Sonia squealed, trying to reach for it. Fortunately the window had bars on it.

Mama laughed. “Be careful Sonia, and I’ll leave the two of you to enjoy the snow, while I go help Papa unpack.”

A few minutes later, Mama returned with a tray loaded with two steaming cups of hot chocolate and a plate of naankhatais. She found her daughters huddled in a blanket on a large chair by the window, watching the snow. Mama placed the tray on the window ledge and left.

A couple of hours later, after Mama and Papa had unpacked and set up the cottage for their week long stay, they went to check on Sonia and Tania.

The girls had finished their cocoa and biscuits, and had fallen fast asleep, cuddling each other on the chair.

The sun was sinking behind the trees, and pink light bathed the cottage and its surroundings. Mama gently woke the girls up.

“Look out of the window now, girls.” She whispered.

Tania and Sonia groggily looked out of the window, but what they saw, made their jaws drop. It had been snowing heavily while they were asleep. Outside the trees were all covered in a blanket of snow, glowing pink in the twilight.
Neither of them had ever seen anything so beautiful, and, indeed, as Mama had said, it was very quiet.

They marvelled at it for a few minutes, and then Tania asked. “Mama, Papa, can we go play in the snow?”

“Yes. Of course.” Mama replied. “But you need to wear your jackets, caps, scarves, gloves and shoes.

Soon the girls were outside. Tania started making a snowman and Sonia helped her. They used twigs for arms and pebbles for the eyes, smile and buttons. They made him a tin foil hat and used a carrot for the nose
