Scrapbook Pages

 This dog has so much personality and we love her so much.

 Perfect time of year to scrap winter picture, seems like it was so long ago, even though it really wasn't

 Love our snowblower, really helps with all the snowstorms we've had these last few winters.

 My poor Valentine's flag was buried for weeks in the snow.
