4th of July, part 2




On Sunday night, we had a few friends and family over for desserts and fireworks!!! There was lots of love to go around, both for our country and family and friends!!!







Here was the main dessert table. You may notice, this is our new dining room - it used to be our living room!!!!









We just flip flopped the rooms and made the old smaller dining room a sitting room! It's so cozy and right off the kitchen - I use it ALL the time now!!!






I've ordered a crystal chandelier, because there is no lighting for this room and hopefully it will be up by next week!!!!










I think the children may have gotten the 4th of July and Halloween mixed up because all of a sudden Chandler was getting everyone's attention for the costume parade through the house!!!




Andrea (in the middle) had knee surgery last Wednesday - she's such a trooper! (Melissa was being silly with the crutches)





It was such a fun time of fellowship and yummy food!!!! Look at that angel - aren't her eyes the most beautiful you've ever seen?




THEN it was finally dark outside and the party moved to the fireworks!















Henderson just tickled me - he was so serious holding that sparkler - his shoulders were up at his ears the ENTIRE time!!!! He was so tense, but loving it!!!!










Out on the porch we had a homemade ice cream station - YUMMY!!!!





Have I mentioned I LOVE summertime????
