Happy Independance Day

From Our House To Yours

Someone was a little sad :(
Maybe it's because the extra large running shoes she's wearing
(women's size 9 1/2 to be exact)

This is my favorite thing on July 4th. When I was a little girl, my dad would light a friendship pagoda for me every year. I would save it in my room on a special shelf until the next year would roll around.

When asked at dinner tonight what FREEDOM means to them, they thoughtfully replied:
Isaac-"It means we get to make our own choices."
Ethan-"It means I have the best life ever."
Abby-"It means no bad guys can get in."

FREEDOM means to me a thankful heart to our Father in Heaven for making all the wonders we share living in this country possible.

For me, the Fourth of July is next to Christmas as my favorite holiday! I love living here and being able to take in the whole freedom festival.

Oh my gosh, I'm sorry--but I am cracking up at Abby!! Are she and Lily so similar or what?! We would have a breakdown over a similar event. And no small cure (like taking the shoes off) can fix being that sad :)
