Happy Labor Day Everyone!



Happy Labor Day everyone! Some people will be celebrating Labor Day in many different forms. Some will be at a picnic or parade, boating, shooting off fireworks and the list goes on and on. Not everyone knows what they are celebrating though. Here is a short paragraph on what Labor Day means

Children were forced into back-breaking jobs day and night in mines, textiles, glass factories, canneries and other places where children don't belong. Labor activists eventually ended child labor -- and won better working conditions for adult workers, including the eight-hour work day. Always celebrated on the first Monday in September, Labor Day honors the social and economic contributions that the American worker has made to the growth health and prosperity of this country.

Hope you are having a wonderful Labor Day where ever you are! What are your plans today?

Happy Labor Day, Sherri (where did summer go???). Tim and I are traveling back to our home today. We had a nice weekend visit with my family across state. We went to an apple orchard and I bought some honeycrisp apples as well as apple butter and peach butter. I'm really looking forward to Autumn. Have a good day!

Hey Sherri, hope you are having a wonderful Labor Day weekend. I am just chilling out at home this weekend getting a lot of much needed projects accomplished. I have not left the house since Friday and I have gotten so much done. Have a great day! Enjoy! Love & blessings from NC!


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
