Seven-year-old Lucy Wiese wasn't able to play outside in the snowstorm over the weekend. Thanks to a thoughtful hospital nurse, however, that didn't get in the way of Lucy enjoying her own winter wonderland.

Lucy, who suffers from a rare immune deficiency called Job syndrome, is recovering from a bone marrow transplant at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Maryland.

The terrible blizzard and Lucy's still-fragile health prevented her from being able to go outside and play in the snow.

When Nurse Alex Classen saw how badly Lucy and other children at the hospital wanted to enjoy the winter weather, she devised a way to bring snow to the kids.

Classen went outside in the cold, filled up tubs with snow and brought them back inside to the children.

Lucy and the other kids used the snow to build snowmen, including Olaf from "Frozen." They were even given crayons and paint to make their chilly creations come to life!

"This kind of thing is not unusual here at NIH. The nurses are incredibly compassionate and caring. They really look out for the kids and the parents, and it feels like a community," Lucy's mother, Jan Wiese, told CBS News. "Lucy has been at NIH for almost eight weeks and has barely been able to leave her room, so it was so much fun for her to be able to play with the snow."

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
