Come to Oklahoma. After three weeks of spring (aka severe weather) it has jumped right to summer!

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:

Attachment 1759

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

Here it is ��

Attachment 1760

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!!

You're welcome!!

Like I said, it's user friendly

You title your own countdown, set the date & time, put in your background, and it's pretty much done! 🎃👻

I am sure it will hit here soon too, just is taking a long time this year. Soon we will also be complaining about how hot it is.

Snowflake, I just downloaded the apps. This is great! I can make all sorts of countdown apps. I'm a sucker for the countdowns, for some reason.

I know we have a Christmas Blossoms thread (which I love!) but maybe during the heat of the summer we need to post some fall blossoms! Snap some pictures of fall decor we see and share so we can all long for those days when the leaves change and it is not 100 degrees!

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 is always hard when vacation is over. We will be praying for your job search. I don't envy you with those temps.

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!
Glad your mom's birthday party went so well. Several years ago we did a similar party fopr my dad's 75th. Great memories, hope you took a lot of pictures.

Our the Vacation Bible School is in July. My wife is director this year. She keeps trying to assign me more duties. I'm trying to be like Nancy Reagan and just say 'no' but it isn't working.

When are y'all headed for the mountains? Hwy 441 across the GSM Parkway is open again.
