FLOWER MOUND -- It feels like spring has sprung in North Texas. You’ve got pool parties, cook outs and, of course, snow?
That’s right. Stacey Power unleashed a winter wonderland in her Flower Mound front yard.
“It’s my daughter's birthday, she wished for snow and it just didn’t happen and we decided to bring the snow to her,” Power said.
Stacey’s nine-year-old daughter, Maddie, had one wish for her birthday-- that was to turn Texas terrain into a frozen fantasy.
“It’s kind of like a Frozen party; it’s her favorite movie and so she just felt incredibly happy, and it was so worth it, all the work,” said Maddie’s future brother-in-law, Chester Rushing.
The hard work goes way beyond just bringing in over 40,000 pounds of makeshift ice and snow. Maddie’s mom runs an organization for kids with autism called Brilliant Futures, a passion project she started after Maddie was diagnosed with autism. But this wintry mix brought out the whole neighborhood to celebrate Maddie’s birthday!
“It’s incredible, not only for their family but for the neighborhood, and for the people around them to make new friends and change peoples lives,” Rushing said.
