Happy July 4th!

Nathan was so excited to decorate his bike for the little parade we had after breakfast at church. 

Scarlett sporting the 1st of 3 white shirts she wore yesterday....


This is the 1st year we've done fireworks with the kids. They thought pop-its were the best!  You can see Scarlett in shirt #3.  Her 2nd shirt (sorry, no pics) got black ALL OVER it when she crawled underneath the car to try to chase the cat...
Scarlett wasn't too sure about sparklers, but Nathan dug them.  This was right before Nathan almost caught Scarlett's hair on fire.  YIKES!!!
We sat on a big quilt in our front yard to watch fireworks. 
Brigham was saying the prayer before bed last night. As he was praying, Nathan prompted him in a whisper, "and please bless us to do fireworks again because they were so much fun."

Great pics! Scarlett's 3 shirts crack me up! Nathan is such a stud. Benson adores him.

Shannon you look very pretty in your family picture. It sounds like you guys have been party hearty since mid June. Your cupcakes turned out very cute. Explain the body pillow? Does Brigham have some bad sleep habits or were you going for quantity over quality?
I'll have to give that bleach pen a try. So it was good for the shirt, what were the other reasons? Too bad I can't use it on my teeth.

Micki-body pillow was b/c his back has been bugging him and he'd been sleeping with random pillows stuffed between his knees at night. This has actually made a huge difference while he's doing dental work. And the 3 reasons were shirt #1, shirt #2 and shirt #3 she wore/stained that day. Actually I've used it on all kinds of white clothing and it really is THE BEST THING EVER!
