Awards and other stuff

I love having company. When our whole family gets together we have a great time. We eat lots of delicious food that everyone pitches in to prepare. We play lots of games. If weather permits we go to the lake and play in the water. We eat more delicious food....

That was pretty much the scenario at Grandma's Ranch the past five days. Most of our kids and grandkids came to celebrate the Fourth and my birthday.

We had our own fireworks show and I had fun taking pictures. I love my camera that has a setting just for fireworks.

Since I was so busy with family, I was not online much and didn't notice right away that Helen Ginger, who writes a great blog Straight From Hel gave me an award. She passed on the "You Are My Sunshine Award to five bloggers who brighten my day with their posts, their blogs, and their comments."

First I want to thank Helen for giving me the award. It is quite an honor, and now I will now pass it on to a few bloggers who brighten my day...

Mary at Giggles and Guns

Mason at Thoughts In Progress

Tracy at I'm Just a Guy

Elizabeth at Mystery Writing is Murder

Ginger at Dishin' It Out

I hope you enjoy my friends as much as I do.

What a great picture. I love your camera, too.

We had company over, too. Barbecued. Made homemade ice cream. Holidays are always more special with friends.

Congratulations on the award and thanks so much for thinking of me when passing it on. I'm honored since your blog is one of the ones that brightens my day. BTW, gorgeous photo.

On top of the holidays we held a cookout for my in-laws birthdays (94 and 89) and when all was said and done it went pretty well. The holidays are special when shared with family and friends.

Thanks so much! You're sweet to give me the award. :) I love your picture!

Sorry it took me a while to get here--nutty day yesterday, then I turned in super-early on top of it!

Thanks again and hope you're having a great week!

Glad you all liked the picture. I took a lot of them and when I have some spare moments I need to optimize them all and post some more.
