What an amazing holiday! I just love what it represents! Freedom is such an incredible gift that should never be pushed aside or take for granted. "In God we Trust...." I love this and try so hard to live every day with this saying on the front of my mind.
We had a wonderful day filled with friends, food, fellowship and fireworks! That is fireworks that we viewed from the indoors and air conditioning! :o)
We decided it was time to get back into the Sheffield norm and open our home up to friends! Before the little ones arrived we did this several times a year and both Michael and I missed having folks over. We figure, God didn't bless us with the perfect home for entertaining to not take advantage of it. We had 29 friends and their kiddos over with lots of great food! We made it a point to reach out to some of our friends that we'd lost touch with and bring them in. It was a great time....and guess what, Ellie did great with sharing her toys! I was so proud of her! This was something we've been working on for a while now! This was SO sticker behavior! If you don't know our sticker behavior system, I'll share that later.
We went down to Michael's office to watch fireworks. It was perfect and we were in the AC! We could see 3 different firework shows that were going on around town. We meet our friends Bob & Bonnie Bolander. You'll see by the picture, there was so much to see we had to put our left cheek nice and close to the window to see it all. :o)
It was a great celebration!
Sharing a juice box moment?
Off to see fireworks!
Hanging out with Daddy!
Here we go with some photos. I wish I had taken more.
