Next on the Summer To-Do List…
This past Tuesday my friend, Meagan came over so we could have a cookie baking party. We baked, iced and decorated 40 July 4th Cookies for the Base BBQ tomorrow night. It was such a good time, although our decorating skills need some tweaking.
July 4th is a very special holiday to military families and no matter where you live people have cause for celebration. We have not celebrated July 4th in the US for almost 4 years and it is simply amazing to me that the men and women of our country make it possible for our citizens to celebrate our Day of Independence in foreign countries all around the world. It really is a special thing to see red, white and blue fireworks, drink lemonade and eat hot dogs in a country where people barely even speak your language. So many people take their freedom for granted.
Tripp and I also had a great time making some 4th of July artwork to decorate the house. Gotta love sponge painting!
