“It’s snowing!” I yelled as I jumped down the stairs to get my thick coat, hat, and boots. It was a cold morning on January 14th and snow was falling heavily. It was the perfect day to build a snowman. There was 4 inches of snow on the ground. I ran outside, got a small ball of snow and rolled and rolled it on the ground until it was a big ball of snow. I did it again and again until my snowman was built. Then I went inside to get a short carrot as a nose, a red hat, big chunks of coal for buttons and a blue scarf. I came out and decorated my snowman. When I was done, I stood back admiring my work and named him Sean.

Now there was just one thing wrong… I wished he was real.

I couldn’t sleep that night because I kept thinking about Sean, the snowman. I took of the covers, got dressed, and looked out of the window. I saw Sean, the snowman… he was sparkling in the moonlight! Sean was looking around for someone to meet. I rushed downstairs and went outside.  Sean looked at me and said, hello!

I felt so surprised that my wish had come true! I asked him if we could go for a football game. He agreed. He reached for my hand. Soon we were flying over the football stadium. When we landed, we decided to find some seats. I found a spot, but when I sat down, Sean was gone! I looked everywhere, in every section of seats, and even in the bathrooms for Sean but he was nowhere! He was lost!
Suddenly, I remembered one place I had not looked… the snacks stand! I ran to the snacks counter and looked up and down the line of people who were waiting. I looked at the front of the line. There he was, buying popcorn for himself and a hotdog for me.

Luckily, I found him just in time because he needed some money. So I gave him some to buy our treats. We went back to the seats. We were happy that we did not miss the game. There were two teams, the Jets and the Giants. Sean and I enjoyed watching the game. We cheered for the Giants. Initially, the Giants were losing but then they won!

After the game, we flew back home. It was the best night of my life! The next morning, I looked out the window. Sean did not move an inch. I sighed and went downstairs. I looked out the window again AND THERE WAS POPCORN ON Sean’s mouth! He must have brought it from the snack stand! Maybe it wasn’t a dream after all, I thought to myself. Sean lasted most of the winter. That was the only adventure we ever went for. I’ll never forget it!
