Happy 4th of July!

We had an awesome 4th of July, lots of good friends and good food. I really wanted to decorate this year for the 4th of July, but I didn't want to spend too much money with gas prices and food shooting up so much. So, I checked out Martha Stewart! :) I loved this garland for our fireplace, and these cute napkin decorations for dinner! Then I wanted to make this star banner for around the dinner table ... I also thought the kids could going to help me make firecracker cupcakes. We've done the coconut coloring before as green grass for easter, they love it! :)

I even bought all the supplies ... but on Thursday night I was so tired I couldn't walk or see straight. So, I wimped out and put up some bunting that I bought from Jo-Ann's instead. The amazing thing was ... nobody cared and it was still an awesome 4th of July!!! LOL. :)
But we did do some fun crafty/amazing stuff. We made
fireworks (it's the video on the right hand side) ... which was a big hit with the kids. I also picked up some darling 4th of July outfits for them ... anything for a cute scrapbook page! :)I also made this drink for the kids. Mainly for the "oh my goodness Mommy! You are magic!" comments. LOL. They weren't quite as amazed as I thought they should be.

And yesterday, I started on a new project with a friend. I've never had a sew-along buddy and it was really fun. :)


  1. That drink looks so cool!! I would be impressed :) I'll have to try it for Hannah next year.


I love comments! Thanks for sharing! :)
