This and That

My posting was rather delayed this morning, due to the Princess waking up about 2 am this morning with a 103 degree fever. Last night she wasn't feeling well before church, so I let her stay home with daddy, and then sleep next to me on a mound of pillows at bedtime. Which was how I woke up thinking I had left my heating pad on; turns out it was her little body up next to mine! Poor little thing.

My husband had a two day holiday for the fourth of July, so we were able to get quite a bit of work done outside. The boys and hubby ended up being in a parade, which I wasn't able to attend because I was up to my elbows in paint! They had alot of fun. Then my neighbor invited us to sit with the Firemen for the fireworks in the evening (he shoots them off for a neighboring city).

All in all, it was a fun and busy day. Here are a few pics:

The artist and the Princess having fun with sparklers. Thank goodness they haven't outgrown these yet!

One of the two strawberry-cheesecake pies I made with my fresh strawberries. I made them between my painting and planting (I explain that to clear up any confusion for Mrs.D and Nikki's Notes;).

Awesome pic of the kids, that is amazing. You guys go all out for the holiday, I wish we did that here but it is rather low key. I left the link to the recipe for fajitas but here it is again.

I'm so glad that you didn't paint and plant your pies. I think that may have ruined them. (You asked for it!)
