Fireworks For Christmas

What do steak-burgers, home-made banana ice cream, marathon Apples to Apples board game playing, multiple trips to the new house, camping, Lowe's, cleaning/packing, church, fireworks, swimming, curtain material shopping, and showing buyers five different houses have in common?

It was all accomplished this weekend.

Yes, I'm tired. But in a good way.

The highlight of Maddie's Fourth of July was the firework show that my friend's neighbors put on. She and Ethan whooped and yelled after every explosion.

At one point, she turned to me and said, "This is better than Christmas!"

Somehow, I don't think she will appreciate it if Santa brings her a sparkler.

Or- it might be her favorite gift. She's weird like that.

Stumble Upon Toolbar

Sounds like an incredibly crazy, fun weekend.

Good for her. Firework shows for kids are the greatest thing anyway...until Christmas of course.

I'm so glad y'all had a wonderful Fourth.
She's such a stinker. :-)
Give her some sparklers in her stocking and tell her Santa heard she thought the 4th was better than Christmas. That'll get her churnin' :-)

Slow down already.
I am tired just reading this post.
Glad to hear you had a wonderful Fourth!
Sparklers for Christmas...
Wouldn't that be great?
