4th Of July 2011

4th of July, one of our favorite holidays. My husband LOVES buying and setting off fireworks. The kids also love looking at them and getting them ready to go.

That evening the cousins came over and watched the fireworks in our neighborhood with us. I am so glad they love each other so much.

Crazy kids. I hope they have good memories of this when they are older.

Lady bug, Lady bug fly away home

Jordan turned 7 back in June and for her birthday she wanted a lady bug theme. I think it was inspired by her lady bug pillow pet, So I did my best to make it happen for her.

The table looked as lady buggy as I could think of, and she got her lady bug cake. It was red velvet with mini chocolate chips in it so it would have the lady bug spots when you cut into it. Going a bit too far? Maybe, but she loved it and that's all that matters.
Happy Birthday sweetheart, now blow out those candles.
To me, what was the most fun, and a real stroke of genius if I do say so myself, was finding a web site that sold real live ladybugs. We set free 1500 ladybugs, and the kids loved it.

Ladybugs exploring their new home.


And of course we set off fireworks.

My Pretty Little Girl

Their hearts belong to Grandma & Grandpa

Jordan loves spending time with her Grandpa, but I'll let the pictures do the talking.

And Spencer loves spending time with his Grandma. Let's face it, they both love both of them.

Just the begining of the change

I am now redecorating Jordan's bedroom. To start I repainted her old dresser, that is after sanding, priming etc... in about a million degree heat. It's done and she likes it. In fact this is her model pose for it. Watch out "The price is right" girls, she may be coming for your job. Silly girl.
