Independence Day!

I hope that you all have fun plans for this weekend! We're excited to watch the city parade and fireworks and then set off some of our own!

Our little city is know for having the largest small-town parade in the world (okay maybe not world, but America?!). Seriously it goes on for hours! It includes lots of pretty floats and lots of low-riders. Some of those low-riders are pretty cool with their hydraulics or whatever it's called... but some roll through like they just accidentally got in the parade line, not a decoration or a bit of charisma in sight.

Since we'll be downtown watching the festivities I decided to make a couple of shirts for the littlest 2 munchkins to wear.  I used some old t-shirts that I had lying around to make the shapes and then adhered them with wonder under! I would have made big munchkin one too, but he said ummm they're cute mom, but no thanks!

I still need to sew around the shapes and then wash them, but they're almost done!

Fortunately we live out of the city limits so we can set off all of these:

We LOVE doing this... especially Mr. Wonderful and Munchkin #1. Hopefully the weather will cooperate with us, but if not we'll do it another night. We also love to sit outside and watch the city's fireworks. They are pretty darn good for a small town.

I'm going to attempt to make these tonight too... wish me luck!

I'm not going to add the icing on top... I think they'll be plenty sweet and cute with out that! If you'd like the recipe click this link: patriotic cookies.

Happy 4th of July, y'all!

  1. You are so cute and crafty! Love the shirts. Maybe we can meet up with you guys at the parade. love ya!

  2. I love those cookies - did you end up making them? I found some adorable cupcake toppers from Tip Junkie and used those in my cupcakes. I'm thinking maybe The Frilly Coconut should release some freebies like that for the next holiday! :)
