Hope Everyone Had an Awesome 4th!!

Decorating those 4th of July cookies.

Kaydee & Kayla (my nieces) with their party favors.

I hope everyone had a wonderful fourth! We had a house full of folks. Hubby's parents and brother came over. Hubby's great aunt, aunt and uncle. My Mama, sister, her hubby, and 2 nieces and a couple of our neighbors. We had some rain, so for most of the day everyone spent it indoors. It was a little crowded. But all in all good company and good food.
Had the yard all decorated!!

We had fireworks, games and water balloon fights (outside for this one) and lots of good food! I had party favors for the kiddies and we made and decorated homemade chocolate chip cookies. It was a really great time.

Watching fireworks, we got to sit out in our own front yard and watch at the park right across the street.

On the adoption front. I got a letter in the mail today. We have been assigned to an agency. That's exciting. They should be contacted us in a couple of days to get things going. I'll be sure to keep everyone updated.

In Christ,
