I am not good at passing on awards but if you would like to list your 7 truthful things please pick up the award and follow the rules by posting your TRUTHFUL things on your blog.
I had a great weekend and am going to work again this Monday after having 3 nice relaxing wonderful days off. I have a vacation day again on Friday so I really am looking forward to another 4 day work week. The days always fly by but we had a great time. The pictures on the side bar reflect only a little of what we did. I can tell you we ate a lot and relaxed a lot and did little of anything else.

The babes all went to the local fireworks display on Saturday evening but I sat at the campground and relaxed some more.

Hope your weekend was a great one and you are refreshed and renewed for another brand new week.

‘On Ya’-ma

Love the pictures and congrats on your award. Wonderful that you only have a 4 day work week. Hope your week goes well. Hugs. said...

7 kids! Wow..I take my hat off to you. How blessed you are to have such a big and loving family.
Sounds like all your kids get along and are close, which is wonderful and rare nowadays.
My husband comes from a big family and they never even keep in touch.
But it has alot to do with his parents.
