Happy Birthday America!

Happy 4Th of July everyone! We have started the weekend off with a BANG!

Let's start with a craft....I had oodles of flags on sticks in my holiday container. So, I pulled the sticks off and started stitching buttons to hold the flags together. I made garlands for the house. The step-by-step directions are on Spotted Canary Miss Nifty Thrifty Blog. I hope you can find some flags on clearance and make garlands galore!
I added Vintage lace to the ends of these flags and hung them in a different directions.

You can stitch patriotic words like America, Home of the Brave, Freedom....
Now, pack your cooler, bring your lawn chair and head with me around the corner to my neighbor, Margie's July 3 Bash!
Notice the cars are parked in a patriotic fashion...

2 Hours of a grand fireworks display. It reminded me of Disney World. Many Ooohs and Aughhhs!

Loads of people and loads of kids.... (Jordan, Jake, Collin, Luke, Sabrina, and Hayden)
A Shark waterslide....

Shane and Jake!!!!!

The Boys!!!!

The GIRLS!!!! (Jennifer, ME, Margie (hostess), Shannon, and Audrey)

BFF's-Lexi and Sutton

Shannon and Jake
Patriotic Golf Carts!

The Black Cats-down the hill and around the bottom for 20 minutes of popping!

The cleaners....
The Big ones lasted for 2 hours....it was magical.

Tonight, get together at the Ward's for 17....Party On America!
