...and so, how was your fourth?

Ours was wonderful!

Years ago, when I was still living with my parents, mom had a friend make these little shoes for each of us children.

Isn't it adorable?

A simple center piece. We needed lots of space for all the food!

On this 4th of July
we experienced:

*a home full of loved ones and friends
*patriotic decorations galore
*great food from the grill
*yummy desserts

*moving music
*lots of laughter (especially during board games!)
*catching up with old friends
*friendly banter

*a visit with our neighbors

*feelings of safety and freedom


Well looky here at who came to visit for the day! (I once was an avid collector of all things bears!)
These charms for our drinkware were a hit! Everybody loved 'em!

Georgiann with her daughter Julia, Peggy with her daughter Tiffany.

The goblets all dressed up and identified!

The music we listened to through out the day.

Let the fireworks begin!

Peggy, Tiffany, Me, Julia, Josh

Our neighbor with her French Poodle, Casper!

July 5th, All the decor gathered, ready to be put back in storage!


We'll be leaving town for vacation on Tuesday. I'm not sure how often I'll be able to log on while I'm away, but my thoughts and prayers will continue to be with you. Believe me when I say, 'I'll check in each and every chance I get!' Would you mind offering prayers up on our behalf as we travel from flat Florida into mountainous West Virginia?May God's rich blessings be upon you.
