Plans...for ...4th of July .........Independence Day!!

And you all thought I up and poofed..gone again........

HA not so fast..

So..everyone knows..the 4th is right around the corner...(Saturday to be exacto)

I was leaving a comment for McLinky...www.mycharmingkids.net..and on there I found a comment by a women and her post caught my eye. She said she would do a link up from her blog..http://www.justafatgirlsblog.blogspot.com back to MckMama...

Now that I've totally confused you...www.justafatgirlsblog.blogspot.com is having a Giveaway..

Her idea...

Post your plans on blog, fb, or somewhere she indicates ..what your plans are for the 4th.. of July.. I am prob. one of the least busy mommas this weekend so here it goes...

My hubby works from Tues-Sat.. and he offered to work on the 4th..Holiday Pay is always a treat..right?

We live in the city and really I'm not excited about spending $$ for fireworks... a few things.. I imagine we'll do but if I get my hubby in that white tent ..I will have to pull him out before they offer him anything extravigant..cause he won't say NO..well just to ME!!

This holiday is also bittersweet as the 3rd of July will mark 10 years since my father in law..has passed away. This also marks 10 years that I miscarried twins ..very early in pregnancy) so having said that..we just make the most of this beautiful holiday and be thankful for all the service men and women that have risked their lives for us!!

**ALSO** If you have seen my Ticker...This momma has just a few days until K is leaving for camp..Honestly I am VERY excited for her.. and let me say in the last day she has repacked and refolded the few items in her suitcase. HA.. Just sitting at the dining room table yesterday and watching her sit on the couch I started to tear up..I can't believe she is almost 11, going to church camp, entering the 5th grade..See my eyes tear up just thinking about it..

Sunday we'll have a after service get together with some yummo to celebrate the fourth..and we'll be praying for beautiful blessings for all those leaving the next morning...TO CAMP!!

Well this is it..Nothing exciting really..

Just another day in MY CRAZY LIFE!!

Tell me what are YOUR 4th of July Plans?

Hugs & Tissues,

Stephanie

I understand the bitter sweetness. Five years ago we buried my niece on the 3rd. It makes it difficult to celebrate much of anything.
