Snowflakes and Snowmen
The moon was full and bright and it was cold. Stewart liked the quiet just before dawn.
Stewart the snowman was dressed in a bright red coat and a red stove pipe hat. He stood very still in the yard of Carl and Cathy.
It began to snow.
Stewart watched the snow flakes land on his sleeve one by one, he was always amazed that every flake was different. Sometimes the flakes would cover him like a blanket.
“God is amazing “ thought Stewart.
Today the walking paths and the roads would have to be shoveled but that would not take too long, this snowfall was light. There had been plenty of snow this winter which made Stewart very happy. He loved the snow. When there was new snow he was always willing to help shovel it from the paths if someone asked for help.
Stewart looked toward the house “Soon the family would be up” he said to himself. “Mary and Edward would be off to school. Cathy would be heading for the Bakery and Carl off to his wood shop.”
“Good morning Stewart” said Hector as he passed by on his way to the Pleasant Hotel. “Good morning” replied Stewart
“There is a great deal to do at the Hotel this morning.” mumbled Hector as he hurried on. The new snow had to be cleaned off all the sidewalks and he had to make sure there was plenty of wood for all the fireplaces. They were expecting many guests at the Pleasant Hotel today and it was his job to make sure everything was ready for them.
The Village of Wonder would be full of guests for the next few days, for tomorrow was the Great Toboggan Race.

Mayor Sam had gotten all the volunteers together and decorated the Village with lights until it glittered from miles away.
Elizabeth and Goldie, both teachers at the Village school, had planed the entertainment. There would be comics telling funny jokes, singing by the choir and dances performed by the Teen Tumblers. The kids had practice and were anxious to perform. Clovis would be there making balloon animals.
The show would be held at the school auditorium the night before the race. Fresh delicious hot apple cider, hot chocolate and fresh made donuts will be served to all who attended.
Little Bear was on the way to the Sonrise Church when he past by Stewart. He noticed Stewart looked a little sad.
“Stewart, are you ok” said Little bear
Stewart replied, ”I’m ok, why do you ask?”
“You just don’t seem like your old self” replied Little Bear, “You seem sad”
“Well” said Stewart, “I am feeling a little left out”
“Oh my. “Exclaimed Little Bear, “How could you feel left out? We are all very busy because of the race, did you finish...
