Ode to Arizona Winter

“All I need is some snowfall…” the mom looked around...
But, since snow storms are scarce, there was none to be found.
Did that stop the old mom? No! The mom simply said,
“If I can’t find any snow here, I’ll make some instead!”
So she called her boy, B. Then she took orange threads,
And she stuck a lil beanie on the top of his head.
She dumped out some cotton- she emptied the sack,
Grabbed her trusty canon- click clickity clack.
The little boy was giddy he was happy to play
No bribing was needed, this just made his day.
Old mom was happy too- she had snow and felt glee
"What is that, is it fake? I must disagree..."
"Don't tell that to Arizona", she said with a roar
"All of us know snow does come from a store!"

Lucky Brody to have such a fun/creative mother. I love that you gave him 'snow' to play with. We usually get tons of snow, but right now we are having a wind/rain storm, with no snow in sight. I might have to steal your idea. It just isn't Christmas without snow.
