We had an amazing 4th complete with sleeping in, being lazy and then enjoying an evening with friends and neighbors.
Kyle and I are loving all the extra family time we’ve been soaking up. While it’s been hard to say no to plans with friends, we believe that in this busy season focusing every free moment of our time on our family is what’s most important to us right now.
Our family is so grateful for all the men and women, like my cousin Dan, who have and still are serving our country to protect our rights and our freedoms. I certainly don’t take this for granted. Having grown up overseas where many of the rights we are accustomed to don’t exist, it makes me even more proud to be an American.
Can I just say tho, y’all, fireworks and kids – they still make me panicky. Tonight Brayden walked by Katelyn and straight into her sparkler. Praise Jesus all he ended up with was some singed hair and eyebrows (I know hair can grow back)… but all I can think about it how much worse it could’ve been. I’d show you a picture of the damage, but I really don’t want you all to think I’m a bad mom, I’m really not. I’ve just had a string of unfortunate experiences, starting with the incident yesterday. Thank you Jesus for watching over my sweet baby boys eye and protecting it. With that said, we are hoping for less hands on fireworks next year maybe and more watching them from a distance… a far distance.
I hope you all had an amazing 4th of July celebrating amongst family and friends!
Did you do anything exciting? I’m thinking next year I need to make some 4th of July themed desserts, have one to share with me?
