I remember when I was a child. One day in the morning my family and I were sleeping yet. My mom woke up and saw at the window and suddenly yelled, "Oh! it's snowing, it's snowing! Every body come see it". My brothers and I woke up so fast as a rabbit to run and look out the window. It was so beautiful for us because in my country we never had seen snow. It was the first time. My brothers and I went out to play with the snow and my mom came too. She looked like a child like us playing and playing. We were very happy that day and every time I remember that, I feel happiness and I feel like a child again.

On December 26, 2008. We went to California. We had to go because my daughter Lorenita needed her passport and her Dad lives there.
We left Colorado at 11:30 am. In just five hours, with in our trip it started to snow. The road was dangerous. My husband drove only 35 m/h. because the road was white. We could only see the tire tracks of the other cars. The traffic was moving slowly.
My children and I were scared and excited. Scared because it was the first time we saw the snow like that specially driving on along trip, but excited because we were going to see my brothers, sister, niece, and nephews. They live Indio, Cal.
After approximately 2 hrs the road was better. It took us 20 hrs from Colorado to Indio, Cal. We arrived at my sister's house at 6:00 am. on Saturday. We immediately rested 4 hrs.
After that we went to meet Lorenita's brother and sister and two hrs later returned at my sister's house. The next day early in the morning. We went to a little farm We saw cows,chickens, ducks, goats, turkeys, donkey,mules, peacocks, a road, a horse, and a pony.
The next day we went to get Lorenita's passport. Later we going to shopping at a Mall.
On December 31, we went to my brother's house to celebrate new years. The next day my daughter went with my brother and her cousin to Glamis. They rode the dune buggy. My husband and kids went to a party at the little farm. We ate grilled beef, we also danced.
On Friday we arrived at Colorado 12:00 pm. The road was very dangerous, but the important thing was that family and I had fun on our short vacation.

Hello! My name is Ofelia.
If I were a color, I'd be white.
The color of the snow and the clouds with a sunny day.
My favorite place is the forest.
Breathing the fresh air, to be relaxed.
My favorite snack is ice cream.
To taste in my tongue how sweet is the flavor.
I really get upset when the people
try to have the control of my life.
I love my life and my family,
if they couldn't stay with me,
I will not be happy.

Black Friday

Ta,rararara,ra rang the alarm clock at 3:30 a.m. on Friday the 28Th. I had decided to wake up earlier in the dawn. It was a snowy morning but the past night, " Thanksgiving day", I was having a discussion with my sister Aracely. We would go to the stores to take advantage of the offers that some shopping centers were giving to increase their sales. All was going well. I picked up my sister at her house, And we were ready to go shopping but suddenly, " Oh my God!" the brakes wouldn't respond. The road was frozen. That was a horrific moment for us, (for me because I was driving), but we continued. We took Powers Blvd. because I thought it was a crowded street and it would stay clean of ice, but suddenly we were in trouble again. The truck seemed to stay in an ice trail. " God, God!" I said. " I need your help to control the truck!". Maybe God listened to my pleas because we could continue.
Finally we arrived at our destination: Kohl's store, but when we were inside I commented to my sister Aracely: " I'm here, but maybe I can't see or find anything. I'm nervous and scared still".
Later we were shopping, but when we were ready to pay " Oh, oh!" the lines was around the store, and we needed to wait for almost 90 minutes. " Patience, patience", I said. Finally we finished and left Khol's. After that we decided to go to the Citadel Mall to continue our shopping.
When we arrived we expected another full place, but to our surprise, there were not too many people there, and we walked to the stores in tranquility. Our shopping took around two more hours, and after that we were bored and tired, so we decided to go back to our houses. We arrived at my house around 12:30.
It was a stressful black Friday! .
