We are expecting rain later today, hope it holds off for the kids to enjoy their day. Tomorrow final exams begin.
Typical day for me. I started my chores and have a couple of errands to run.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!

I hope the rain holds off for them!!!!!

We told her we were all just going out to eat for her birthday, but he brought her out to the masonic lodge where the party was setup, and she started crying. LOL

We finished up around 11pm, and I was beat from jousting with the huge charcoal grill. I cooked 120 hamburgers and 140 hotdogs. Whew! But it was a blast.

I spend most of the day yesterday cleaning up the lodge and returning everything we had borrowed for the party. It was fun, but now I'm glad it's behind us.

This week, we have Vacation Bible School, so I have to get back to work.

I hope y'all have a great day!
Awe, I'm glad she enjoyed it!!!

I hope you enjoyed your vacation and Good Luck on the job hunt!!!!!

How is everyone doing? I downloaded a Halloween countdown app yesterday and it got me excited! I always start the Christmas season November 1. I know we have a long summer to get through, but the fall will be here before we know it!
Speaking of a long summer...highs may hit 100 this week here in Oklahoma! They will at least be high 90s.

Have a good Monday!
It looks like you guys had a fun vacation!!

Good luck with the applications that you put in! I'll keep you in my prayers, that you hear back from the ones you are most interested in.

I love the countdown apps! I have two Halloween ones, and quite a few Christmas ones myself my favorite Halloween one is one I made myself.

I can't wait for Fall!!

Adrian went to Michael's yesterday, and I had him ask when their Autumn decor would be out, and they said that they already have a small section going, but that it should all be out in a month...Yippee!!

Stay cool this week! It's going to warm up & get humid here, too.

OK, you can have the first one, it fell apart because in my rush I forgot to line the bottom of the pan and it stuck!

I downloaded a general countdown app, took a shot of it:

ImageUploadedByTapatalk1370874331.125670.jpg

And you can make a countdown for any event here! They have default pics, or you can upload one from your camera roll. That's what I did.

I have a Halloween background app:

ImageUploadedByTapatalk1370874452.818751.jpg

I saved a favorite pic from that to my camera roll & voila!

Here it is 🎃

ImageUploadedByTapatalk1370874536.152533.jpg

Let me know if you have any questions once you download it! It's really user friendly!

I also have a countdown to vacation that I made, put family birthdays in there, etc. Best countdown app IMO!!
