We had people here over the fourth, so I was keeping busy getting things lined up for that.
I wanted to share these flat burlap canvas flags that we made the last time our little craft group was here. So today is the day... before July passes me by. lol
We also celebrated my sis's birthday when we were together. I'm happy to celebrate her, any day of the year. She is and always has been such a source of love and support to me. I don't know what I'd do without her. A sis and a best friend all wrapped up in one!
Each one of use has a slightly different and unique finished flag... and each one was awesome!
I had made two different samples, so here is the smaller one hanging out back. The larger one was on the front door, (I just forgot to get a picture).
Nothing better then celebrating with people you love, and making memories!
We brought out our movie night Hot dog cooker and nacho goodies, as well as plenty of other food. Lets just say, I don't think anyone went hungry. lol
And I love having all the concession stand goodies out, but this time it was just so hot,. I had to set them up inside otherwise everything would have been melted the first hour.
lots of fun to be had.
Speaking of kids growing up fast.....
You may remember this ( not so little) guy, if you are a blog reader from years back. Can you believe this is little Nathaniel? He is such an amazing man now. He is so smart and kind. He always makes time for his old Aunt Vic. Makes my heart happy.
And then.... speaking of my heart being happy. I am pretty darn sure I was in absolute HEAVEN when this photo was taken at the end of the night. I long hot day of playing hard and then watching fireworks had these two sweeties worn out. I jumped on this golden opportunity and strategically placed myself in the big comfy rocker and put some cartoons on.
My. Happy. Place.
I am so blessed to have so many amazing family and friends! Thankful everyday!
I hope your Independence Day was wonderful also!
Thanks for stopping by, my friends!
