Getting ready for a big day…

Around here we love holidays. I think my boys would say July 4th ranks in their top three. Mine too. It is just plain fun. Even as the boys are growing older with bigger bikes, they are eager to pull out the ole crepe paper and do it up right. We have flags and streamers and even the old cards in the spokes. They have been disturbing neighbors with their noisy bikes all day. Now they decorate on their own and want very little of our insight. Both Carter and Owen beg Hayden for anything that needs doing and today the decorating event started off with some real fireworks as the boys simply could not figure out how they were going to share one roll of tape. Good grief! They were getting very close to heading to their respective rooms when they finally worked it out. Ava woke up and she joined in the fun of spreading patriotic decor all over. we finally donned her with a fancy bandanna we found in the box and she thought it was the best ever. Looking forward to seeing her eyes sparkle at the parade in the morning. Here’s hoping your holiday weekend is going great! Here’s a few photos showcasing the boys back in the day. More photos tomorrow as this Momma is signing off!
