Fourth of July 2014
Our first official day as a family of SEVEN!
Oh, it was such a treat to have all of my babies under one roof - all were happy, all were talking ninety miles an hour with the stories of days apart! And, of course, Maryn was the center of attention!
The day flew by too fast. My father awoke early and prior to his departure to the mountains, he cooked us a welcome home breakfast of pancakes and bacon! So thankful! With laundry piled about the house, we decided it was best to begin the dreaded deed. And then it was naptime. And then it was grocery time....and, of course, firework time! It wouldn't be the 4th without a firework or two!
The boys strategically let several of the larger packs....
while the girls stuck to sparklers for their entertainment.
Sparklers really are the best....the girls wrote their names in the air...
and pretended to be magical fairies!
This little one was making us all laugh as she made the funniest expressions during our firework fun. She loved seeing the lights and hearing the crackles and booms!
So thankful for each of my children! What a fabulous day to remember and cherish!
