The SUN came out today!

Oh Sunny day...well actually the sun came out from behind the snow clouds for a little bit of time. This is the bench right next to my front porch steps, the stepping stones that lead to it between the shrubs are still buried with snow.At the top left of this pic is the two car driveway leading to our garage....nope it isn't shoveled...snow got too deep to keep up with, plus the frigid temps turned it to a solid sheet of ice!!!
Charlies trail is curving on the right of this pic....then the snow got too deep and he quit using it. To the left some lil creature has been rooting around??? I don't know what it could be?
Hi mom ~:O) here is a picture of Anthony and Rachel!! ♥

Fav color?

Following the blog prompt from Sisterhoodofscrap ~ My favorite color is Green. What does it say about me? For me I think it means I love growth, living, life and sunshine!
Green ~Mother Nature is green and she's a female.
A favored color of both men and women,
the color green is cool,
restful,
and signifies growth,
renewal,
health,
and environment.
