4th of July

This post is a little out of order, but I wanted to post one of my favorite holidays! I love dressing silly & all RED, WHITE, & BLUE! I always feel so much pride being able to live in the land of the FREE. I've always loved this holiday, but I love it even more ever since I lived out of the country & realized just how great our country is! Here is our family decked out for the 4th :)

I didn't plan on being in IF for the 4th, but they celebrate it so well & since we don't have a parade I thought we should go for Tommy's sake. He was really into it & didn't want to look away from all of the excitement.
One of my favorite things is making festive food so here is what I created for this year. My sister Katie helped me put it all together for her fiance's family BBQ.

I saw a picture of this on someone's blog & didn't know what they did for the star part cuz it was at a weird angle so I made up my own... blueberries on fruit pizza & then did star shaped fruit pizza for the other platter... Vic's favorite.

Here is my adorable little firecracker. It was fun making her booties, headband, & bracelet for this special occassion!

My 2 kiddos... Tommy just stares at the camera and refuses to smile at it these days no matter what sort of jumping jack, crazy tongue face Vic makes!

your kids are so cute! i love Whitney's headband and bracelet. I'm glad Tommy had a fun 4th. Ben wants to know if you counted out exactly 50 blueberries on the flag fruit pizza.

So cute! If you were in town missy, why in the world did you not come to the reuinion?! Holly finally talked me into the day of & I was really hoping that I'd get to see you. I just figured you didn't make it to IF afterall. You are in big trouble! :-) I'm glad you had a great 4th though! XOXOXO
