Independence Day...

Web image
Today marks the 239th Birthday of our great nation.
In our home, we'll celebrate everything that makes this country great. We'll contemplate all of the events that have brought the United States to this point in our history. We'll pray for our nation and all the struggles and challenges we have yet to face.

Today is a day for counting blessings, thanking all those who went before us, as well as those who currently serve America. They all fought for the freedom we enjoy today.
Today we'll watch parades and fireworks displays. There will be picnics (with red,white and blue cake!) and swimming, and games with children all over our country. Today we'll take time to remember, give thanks...and play.

From our family to yours...
Happy Independence Day!
God Bless America.

More Dresses For The Girls...

My friend, Marti has been busy! She's a member of the same guild to which I belong, and she brought a surprise to me at our board meeting on Wednesday night...five more dresses for the little girls! (She's made eight so far!)
She even embellished a few of the pockets with the cutest appliques'. This one had a cute, little elephant, and another was embellished with...
  a green goat! hee hee

I have ten dresses in hand so far. Only 90 to go to meet our goal! I'll be working on more of mine throughout the weekend. I'm looking forward to seeing the numbers of dresses grow. There are going to be a lot of happy, little girls.

A Message From Tag...

Hi, Everybody!
I'm not sure exactly when the fireworks are gonna start this week.
I just know it's important to remember to protect your pets once the noise starts.

I know lots of dogs are afraid of loud noises, even though I'm not.
I'm puttin' up this poster to help out the ones that freak out whenever they hear stuff like this. I feel real bad for them and hope that it'll help you keep them calm and safe. Most important, don't take your favorite pet(s) outside without a leash to make sure they don't escape and run away. 

I'll see you next Tuesday, but I couldn't wait until later to share this with you.
Please do your best for your pets, and thanks again for readin' this.
