Live Inspired, Dream with Possibility

Oh boy I sure do love holidays but they really mess me up. Now today I am getting the kids ready for
 Monday stuff and it is Tuesday lol... The weather was nice at my house and we had a great weekend...I even found a bit of crafty time.

Well that is it for today.. Thanks for stopping by...Monique
