 Mr. Snowman Ate Our Picnic Lunch
The littlest Blake sisters, Sharon and Kelsey, are upset about being left behind at their grandparents cabin when their parents and four older sisters go skiing at Squaw Valley.
After finishing a yummy cup of hot cocoa and gingerbread cookies, Papa suggests the girls build their first snowman. Nana packs a picnic lunch that disappears and Sharon is certain the snowman has eaten the sandwiches. Kelsey thinks her sister is being silly. Maybe the mama deer and her fawn or the bunny under the Thimbleberry bush ate the lunch?
                                                  What do you think?
