Weird Weather

Hi Everyone.  It just seems like the weather has been weird in many areas of the world, what with huge snow falls across Canada and the United States, cyclones, fires and floods in Australia, a volcano erupting in Japan and I am sure that there are other places experiencing these weather phenomenas.  I hope that everyone is safe and coping as well as can be expected under these conditions.  For those of you that are travelling to warmer weather, I sure hope you have been able to make your flights to enjoy your vacations.
The two cards that I am sharing today, I did for my grandchildren.  The 6 year old was going through some rough periods and I wanted to bolster his spirits and the 4 year old loves to get mail from the mail box.
