The end of winter is near.....knock on wood.

Here are the last of our "winter" pictures.  Spring officially starts in a few weeks.  (Knock on wood).  As you can see, I have some good helpers assisting me with the shoveling...who needs a snow blower, now?

Owen's snow fort.  (He rolled the snow and hoisted them up all on his own!)
Maggie, very proud with her snowgirl.  She also made a snowboy down in the backyard.  (Yes, the snowchildren are brother and sister!)
I have to say the forecast of 60+ is very appealling.  I will go on record to say that I am looking forward to my Spring allergies.  Come on runny eyes and itchy throat!

Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday

Beauty in the ashes
Sorrow for sin and fault
Loved and Forgiven anyway
Ashes of sin, guilt, tasks undone, words unspoken, letters unwritten
What will I do with the ashes?
Something beautiful.
