Christmas in July....FMS295





Once upon a time long ago our family was small......the kids were little and getting together for family events was easy. But kids grow up, move away and have their own kids and suddenly getting together at holiday time was tough - especially in the winter!  So a few years ago we decided to gather once a year over Fourth of July weekend at our camp on the lake.......and Cuzziepalooza was born!  It is two days of fun, family, food, and surprises - a bit like Christmas in July!

                                            




My very talented Australian friend Narelle has us going in circles this week at Freshly Made Sketches - hope you join in the fun!
                                                   


Stamp Ink Paper has a Christmas in July theme this week!

What a great idea, Linda. I think we are going to have to pick Halloween or something since my brother works retail. He never has Christmas off. Love your pretty snowflakes and falling snow.
