Happy 4th of July!!

I made this LO a long time ago and never posted it. I thought it was appropriate for today:

We went to a pancake breakfast at church this morning. I had a good laugh because when we pulled up there were at least 6 BBQ's in the parking lot. Now what does one need a BBQ for at a pancake breakfast? Well, I guess here in the south they cook pancakes and eggs on a BBQ. I would think an electric griddle would be easier to transport and clean, but hey, what do I know? :o)

Yesterday was Alex's birthday. Here are a sampling of some of the many photos I took:

In order to double up on the decorations I did everything in red, white and blue. (Please ignore the messy floor!)

It took a little coaxing to get Alex to open his present, but once he realized there was paper ripping involved he was all over that!

We got him this little Tonka truck that makes noises and sings a song. He dances along, it's so cute. (He will be getting his dresser, the rest of his gift, sometime in the near future)

Here's my cake creation this time. It was hard to frost, the cake kept crumbling. Next time I'll freeze it first!

Alex really wanted to grab the candle and was mad that we wouldn't let him. Ella helped him blow it out.

He sure did enjoy eating his cake! It ended up going up his nose, which he didn't like, and I think it upset his stomach because he wouldn't sleep later. But he loved it while eating!

I got some time in today for some scrapping. Here's my LO:

Credits and journaling here. I completely scraplifted it.

So I think that's it for today. I'll probably post tomorrow with some pics from tonights festivities. We're doing our own little fireworks show. I'm too lazy to drag the kids to a fireworks show at 9 PM in the rain while being attacked by mosquitos. What can I say?
