July 4, 2010

We had a fabulous 4th of July! We started off the day by going to church and Sunday school. Katie was dressed very patriotic like with her red, white, and blue plaid dress and big, red, flower bow. She was absolutely precious! That afternoon we rested and gave Katie long naps, so she could have fun during the evening and nighttime activities. We hosted 4th of July at our house last year and had a great time, so we opted to do it again.

We had a wonderful appetizer of BBQ grilled sausages and pepperjack cheese. We got the idea from another friend. For dinner, we had hamburgers, hotdogs, baked beans, corn on the cob, and chips. For dessert, we had a patriotic cake and a yummy ice cream cake!

Here's a sweet picture of Katie playing in the fireworks.

While dinner was cooking, Josh helped entertain Emma. They played paperdolls! SO... Any of you single ladies out there want a great guy?!?! Just let me know!

Hannah's 23rd birthday was actually Saturday, but we celebrated it during the 4th! Happy Birthday, Nanners!

Papa got to give Katie her first bite of ice cream! She didn't just get a bite :o)

Katie loved all the attention she got from her cousins and aunts!

We laid blankets down, so she could crawl around on the grass. She was definitely the pre-show entertainment!

Katie loved hanging out with Aunt Julie, but she always loves giving a smile to her Daddy!

Mommy, Daddy, and (sleepy) Baby

I don't know why this picture keeps showing up sideways on here! It isn't like this on my computer, but oh well! We were watching fireworks down the street! She loved the bright colors.
Katie didn't really make it to the actual fireworks because she got too tired, but she wasn't scared! The ones she did manage to watch and see, she enjoyed. Aunt Judi was kind enough to take her inside and put her to bed. It was a GREAT holiday, and I can't wait until next year!
