Happy Birthday, America!

When I sewed these bandana skirts for my girls months ago I had today, July 4th, in mind. I don't dress my girls alike too often, but when I do, they sure look cute. Thanks to their Aunt Colleen they had matching shirts too. They received lots of smiles and compliments as they tripped along down the hallway at church today.

My family got together over at my Dad and Debbie's home to celebrate America's birthday. We had our traditional meal: burgers, brats, potato salad, baked beans, chips, and apple pie with vanilla ice cream. I love spending time with my family. I love getting to see four generations of relatives together.

I'm grateful to live in America. I appreciate the tremendous sacrifice soldiers like my brother (Iraq) and my grandfather (WWII) gave in honor of our country. I'm thankful for the many freedoms we have here in the U.S.A.  We're an imperfect country made of imperfect people, but it's home sweet home, and I love my country.

Happy Birthday, America!
