The time is coming

I was at a craft store Tuesday night and was walking down the isle to the front of the store to go check out when I was startled by the screaming sounds of ghosts and goblins. I stopped and slowly turned on my heels to see an isle filled full with the glittery purples, shiny black metals and flashing oranges of Halloween. I just stood there and stared in amazement at the sight of what I was looking at. I couldn't believe that they had Halloween decorations out. It's the beginning of July! We JUST celebrated America's birthday and now this! I started to walk down the isle and I was getting this giggly feeling inside. I just LOVE the Autumn season. I started getting flashbacks of the sights and smells of Autumn: baking apple pie, carving pumpkins, the cool crisp air, the leaves changing colors. I had a very big smile on my face.

As much as I like summer time, I LOVE Autumn even more. I know for most people it's a little early to see this stuff out already. But in my mind, it's never to early. YAY!! Autumn is on its way!!

Good to see family

My cousins Shelly and Tracy and their families were in town on vacation at the same time. And they wanted to get together and have a cousins cookout. Shelly started doing all the planning for this and choose Sunday, July 1. When I read that email with the info, I responded back to her telling her that day was also my dad's birthday. And we should celebrate that as well. She loved that idea. So then it ended up becoming the cousins/birthday cookout. We had so much fun. It was really nice to see people who you only get to see once a year, if that. And lately, it just seamed like the only times I see my relatives is at funerals. So it was nice that is a was positive event that got us all together!!

Here is a page I did of my cousin Shelly.
