Hello

We had a wonderful fourth of July weekend, I hope you all did too. I felt very American, kiddos swam in the kiddie pool, a couple of friends over, ate some great BBQ, homemade ice cream, fried green tomatoes, fireworks in the back, all while the dog ran around in excitement. Hubby leaves for Mexico missions for a week today. Super excited for him, but this is his first long trip since we have had two kiddos, yikes. I do have big plans though. I am going to sew up a storm, work on a home I am decorating, make a light fixture out of a basket, and hopefully post photos of Ellie's room makeover. There are a few more odds and ends that I want to complete, but we will just have to see how far I really get. Here's to hoping. Sorry for another short post. Hope to visit you all soon too, I have been slacking.

Any local ladies that have husbands working at night or if you need a girls night you are more than welcome to come on over! Just e.mail me.
