On a cold night, an ice cream shop in Anchorage opens its doors with a loud, powerful boom.
But it wasn’t just any ice cream truck, as the door mirrors of the Anchorage Ice Cream Truck opened with a crackle.
Inside, you can see the owners’ children.
They’re all wearing hoodies and their mothers are in them.
The doors open, and a flurry of snowflakes fall.
But in this case, it’s the owner’s two-year-old daughter who comes out, looking as warm as a dog.
She’s dressed up in a black sweater and her mother is in a white top with a white bowtie, her eyes shining.
“The next thing I know, she is standing in front of the door,” says Amy, the owner.
“And she’s holding her own snowflake.”
Amy and her family have opened their doors to the public and brought smiles to people’s faces every day.
“It’s really exciting, especially because the children are our kids,” she says.
“We’re the family that’s always smiling.”
A mother’s joy to open a door is the same joy to bring joy to the world.
Amy and Amy’s daughter is Amy.
“She is so adorable,” Amy says.
Amy says it’s been a whirlwind, but she’s been able to see the impact the snow has had on people’s lives.
Amy opened her doors to her daughter to celebrate her birthday and said it was a life changing moment.
Amy’s mother, Lisa, says the children were so happy.
“They’re always in their hoodies, so they’re like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m so excited!’
They’re so happy,” she said.
Lisa said it’s also been an emotional time for the family.
“My husband and I are devastated,” she told ABC News.
“There’s been so much grief.
There’s been no closure.
We have three young kids, and the kids are just loving each other.” “
Our family is doing well.
We have three young kids, and the kids are just loving each other.”
Lisa says the snow is helping her family cope.
“When I look at the snowflake on the door, I just feel like I’m in the front of a movie,” she added.
“That’s what makes it so special to open the door.”
