Brhhh! It is very cold in here!

During the school holidays my cousins Faith, Mariah, Hailey and I went to Snow planet. Snow planet is a humongous warehouse filled with snow and the temperature is controlled around 2 degrees so we had to put on warm clothes.

When we got there, we had to wear special snow boots to stop us from slipping on the snow and it also kept our feet warm. However, It took me so long that by the time I was ready, Faith, Mariah and Hailey had already finished.

First, we got a big, round tube and we sat in the middle of it. After that, we went into the snow area and it was really, really cold. It felt like I was in a humongous freezer.

We walked up the steep hill where we slid down on the tubes. Faith was the first person to have a turn but while she was still having her turn, I was pushed down the hill. I was going really fast and I bumped into her which sent me flying off my tube. My hands felt so cold that I started getting blisters because I had forgotten to get some gloves. That’s when we rushed back inside to get some warm gloves. After that, we went again and again up and down the hill until our faces were extremely frozen.

He also did a disappearing of colours trick using a magical book. Then Cornflake blew up some balloons for us. Faith, Hailey and Mariah got fairy wings with a puppy doll and I got a flower heart shaped balloon. After that, we all got our face painted into colourful butterflies. Then as we were ready to leave, we looked outside and saw Cornflake’s car so we waved goodbye to him.

I had a fun time at Snow planet meeting Cornflake the clown. However, next time I’ll have to remember to put on gloves so I don’t get blisters from the snow.

Keep saying the Nicene creed everybody, it's important!

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made.
Who, for us men for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.
And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father [and the Son]; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets.
And I believe one holy catholic and apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

The Nicene creed is the heart of professing Catholic faith.
