With a smile as large as the valley below.

As the dark clouds swirled, the forest gnomes busied themselves. For since time recorded, they have been tasked with waking Father Winter. Jimmy's task was to bring the sugary treats this year.  At first light, the ten gnomes gathered their belonging and waited for Jimmy.  Jimmy, with a smile as large as the valley below, arrived.  He was out of breath due to his running back from the humans' bakery in the valley.  With pride, he showed his booty. A box of chocolate covered doughnuts with coconut. The whole group knowing they are his favourite. Up the mountain they went.
