Our exquisite hostess with the mostess this week the Incredible, the Awesome..the One of a Kind...Swampy!!! Her assignment for this week is the following:

Choose a topic/theme and make an alphabetical list of words, phrases, photos...however you want to share your topic/theme.

Very Creative! I love the way you did it - great job!

Sandy said...

What a creative person you are! Terrific job and great pics of your family - but you didn't include

Kim said...

Fun pictures!

I did enjoy my vacation. Oddly enough, even the mess and the painting. The room will look very nice, and my mom deserves a pretty bedroom. She has never really had one before.

Pamela said...

Excellent (I loved the Ass one, ha ha)

We learned a lot about your family, too.

Peter said...

An excellent adaptation of the rules Alison.
Thanks for your support.

Agree that Baron is very handsome--what breed is he? Liked your original take on Swampy's assignment.

Nicely done! Love the twist you put on it. Came out great. Your family looks, and sounds, very happy and fun to be around. You're very lucky, but I think you already know that.

Have a great week!

Where is my comment? BloggerBooger must have eaten it ! I posted just after Robin did.
OK, I'll quit whining and post again.
First, thanks for that wonderful introduction...**Swampy taking a bow** **OUCH** **"My Back, My Back**
Enough of that...
You were just too creative with your personalization of everyone. Love it. Love it. Love it.
You are wonderful and so are all those family members.
Thanks for playing the game and have a great week.
