Independence Day, low-key style

smores

hmmm.  these treats are delicious!

emily and amberly.  emily is about to have her second little girl.  I think if I can not have my own baby right now, this is the next best way to do it.  Have the across-the-street neighbor have one, then I can sneak over between feedings and steal her for a while.  I get to hold a sweet little baby and still sleep through the night… perfect!

our s’more and sparkler party was followed by watching fireworks from the roof.  all in all, a great low-key way to celebrate our freedom.  along with cooper’s prayers all day long that included phrases like, “please bless the flag, that it will have strength.”  and “please bless us celebrate our country’s birthday.”

What kind of spell is Senny casting? (I live in a house full of HP fans)

maybe I will come drop her off at your door at 4 in the morning just so you can really feel like you have a newborn again!
