Oh Mother Nature is fickle this week. We went from having almost summery warm weather where everyone was pulling out the shorts and the tee shirts and the men were polishing up the lawnmowers for the season to today. Today is just at the freezing mark and I did see the odd snowflake in the air. I ran out to take a photo of these poor white crocus that came out a couple of days ago and have not opened yet because we had two days of rain and not it's too darn cold.

The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday. Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake. Kenzi was having no part in it. She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake. Oh well maybe next year. It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were. Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake. He is her favourite character. I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday. I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
