I’m SO seeing Franci in Marica’s expressions! Your next mission, if you haven’t already accomplished it yet - picture of a snow angel or two or three! :o)

Such a cute picture of Marica…she looks so proud of herself!:) And Dutch blood she has, right? So what’s she going to do with all the pennies?:)
