Awww Monday: Coloring Fun!

Awww Monday is hosted by Sandee, of Comedy Plus.

Join us every Monday for Awww...Mondays.  Post a picture that makes you say Awww... and that it.

Make sure you get the code from Sandee's site, linked above, and leave a link to your post so we can visit you.  What better way to start the week than with a smile!


Happiness at the church for the homeless is when the other kids have gotten up so you get the bench to yourself so you can color.  It's a bonus that you get to take the whole coloring book with you when you go!

Coloring your own book to take home with you is fun!
