Since we were out of town for 4th of July, our neighbors saved some fireworks to do when we got back and we were treated to quite a show!
Ellie learned to say "cheese" and posing for pictures quickly became a favorite hobby-- but only if SHE wants her picture taken.
Grandma came to town (and brought Nick back with her). Even though the kids saw her a lot in June/July, they were excited to have her at our house again!
We celebrated Christopher's TWELFTH (how is that possible?!) birthday with dinner and presents!
He made maple pecan brownie bars for dessert-- all by himself! Happy birthday!!
These silly kids sure do make our parties entertaining!
