Fourth of July

Well I wish that I could say I was able to sleep in and enjoy a relaxing morning of leisure this morning but that surely was not the case at my house. Phillip had to work a couple of hours this morning and the kids had to be at Kereiakes park to get their morning run in by 6:30, so needless to say my alarm went off at 5:20 on my day off…..UGH!!!

The kids finished their run and we arrived back at the house around 8:00.  Fighting the temptation to crawl back in bed for a nap, I instead made breakfast and assigned everyone chores to do. With that being said, one momma, two teenagers and two hours later, I had a clean house except for the mopping the tile floors. Which I decided to do after the running in and out of the house was done with for the day.

In the spirit of things and I am not sure why I didn't take more pictures of  my decorations, I guess I was either wrapped up in getting everything clean (ha!) or enjoying the day.  Again, another one of my plates that I decorated, this one is a plastic plate that I bought at Walmart back at Christmas, I love the stripes!!!  I printed this print off last year or the year prior and sadly I can not remember where I printed it from. The print is from Landee see, Landee do.  Thanks Shannon for reminding me where I saw it at.
 As for the enjoyment of the day, Courtney ditched us, as she has been doing a lot of here lately.  I guess it’s a teenage thing that I’ve just got to get used to.   She turned down the sparkly clear pool for the mucky lake with her friend Bailee.  As for the rest of the us, we stayed cool in the pool until later this evening when we headed out to Alvaton Church of Christ for Festivities and Fireworks.
Jonah and Morgan, along with Phillip and I getting ready for the Fireworks!!!

Jonah was a little bummed this year that he was not able to set his own fireworks off since we are under a burn ban in the county. Praying for rain!!!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July!!!

He is before ALL things and in HIM ALL things hold together.

Colossians 1:17

Blessings to all ~

Love your plate! I think your print is from Landee See Landee Do. I have it pinned on pinterest. :)

I'm sad I missed seeing you at the fireworks. Bummer!
Alvaton church really does a great job with that event!
