A Fun Fourth!

Aside from food, I made absolutely no plans for the 4th of July yet it turned out to be a wonderful day!

Sarah and Daddy headed out to Home Depot for the Kids Workshop this morning. Isn't she cute?!?! I think she took the apron off for about 10 minutes total today. My husband was very, very impressed with Home Depot, the employees and the workshop.

(Ella holding the caddy Daddy made -- she HAD to have her picture taken, too! And wearing a pink dress she won't take off... sigh.)

I've been planning a shrimp boil for today since shrimp was on sale a month ago. It was delicious! We made way too much food, but it was our first time so now we know! Sarah told me she hopes they have shrimp boils in heaven. Yeah, she liked it! You are supposed to put newspaper on the table and just throw all the goodies on the table, but someone around here has some minor OCD issues. It took major convincing just to get the food all mixed together in one bowl!

Sarah and I also made the Buster Bar Dessert last night and it is to die for! My husband literally exclaimed, "OH MY GOSH" after he took his first bite.

And now I'm home blogging watching really terrible television while the little kids sleep and the older kids went out in search of fireworks.

Hope your celebration was as wonderful as ours!

Wow, that sounds like fun and the food sounds amazing! And it's nice to hear some positive feedback about those Home Depot workshops - I've been wondering if they're any good :)
