Let freedom ring

Happy Fourth of July week, friends!

We started our long weekend off getting this one shorn - kid can seriously grow hair. #superpower

I was laughing at this picture - Nicole took it of me one morning at Gammy and Pops' house about 6:30am. Baby girl had been up most of the night, but I was still up at 5am to meet my deadline. This is not a pretty sight. But it's how things get done. ;) 

Every night, friends. Holiday weekend or not, here we are, painting, staining, caulking, painting, staining, demoing, painting and staining. ;)

Hard worker guys, like Nathan used to say. I love love love LOVE the paint color we went with - it's "Perfect Greige" by Sherwin Williams. Such a warm color and it's exactly the same color as small child hand prints, which was the top of my new paint must-have list. ;) Ha!

My mama is in there somewhere. ;) Thanks Mom!! If she isn't watching kids, she is over working at houses. She and Dad have put in a TON over this month. And to top it all off, we are all living with them at the same time. Saints.

And then it was the Fourth of July!! The kids didn't come in all day. And we all unanimously agreed that we would not work at all this night. Gammy and Pops truly have the best bike riding yard ever - the kids rarely come inside.

Two girls, au naturel. ;) Little Miss was getting nervous about the fireworks everyone was talking up, I think.

Just sweaty messes, the lot of them. Not sure what we are going to do with those two. They are too cute for their own good.

The best way to hold a sparkler is to dance around with it while loudly singing the Star Spangled Banner. Right? Right.

Love this. Every year, Pops and Uncle Bryant put on a big fireworks show for us all. So fun.

This one is such a goose. I just love him.

Cutie head. He won't stop growing. Love this one too. ;)

Sweet baby girl. We couldn't find any of her pants in the chaos so she was wearing Gabriel's. ;) We'll keep this one too. ;)

Gabriel is such a sweetheart. :)

This particular method of watching fireworks was just making me laugh.

Happy Fourth!! We are so thankful for the men and women who keep our country safe and allow us to celebrate our freedom. May God continue to bless America.
