They are so pretty. And he was so sweet not to get me any candy! We had a big snow last night so I will be out shoveling today. Can't wait till spring! I'm so ready for the warm weather,to be able to hang out my clothes,work in my flowers and garden and to mow the yard! Yes I love to mow. It's so relaxing to me. I'm able to think and not have anyone asking me 20 questions while I'm doing it. Have a good one!
