4th of July!!!

WOW!!! What a great weekend! The morning started off bright and early with breakfast at Granny Shirley's and Papa T's house! The night before they had told us it would be ready around 6:30ish.....well, that's a little early for my liking but we managed to make it!!! And what a spread they had! My thoughts were maybe pancakes, some eggs......NO, it was the whole nine yards!!! Pancakes with homemade toppings, biscuits and gravy, muffins, sausage, bacon, grits, fruit....and more!!! It was YUMMY!
The little pancakes were for the babies!!
Here is the man in charge of the pancakes!

Kennedy and Kate!

Hollie and Kate!

After a wonderful breakfast and a much needed nap......we were ready for our cookout! This year was the first time we've ever hosted a holiday event at our house! We grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, ate watermelon until we're sick and swam all day! What a great time with friends and family!

Bennett and Payne!

Momma and Pam!

Joann and Kevin!

After a wonderful day we still had one more event......fireworks! Our town is pretty small but it does know how to have a great firework show!

Rob wanted to be in the picture too!!!!

OK, we didn't know she had done this until I uploaded the pictures!!!! Thanks!!!

Kennedy getting ready to watch the fireworks!

Praise the Lord for our Independence and for all of our troops! Thank you to all the military and your in our prayers!

Aww, what a great post and a fabulous 4th of July party. I love all her little wardrobe changes. My kids had a day outfit and a night outfit as well. Hubbs thinks I'm crazy but I call it "stylish" :)
