Happy Independance Day! I am happy to have the day off from work and so thankful to live in this USA. I would be "amiss" if I did not take the opportunity to publicly thank all of our previous and present military that has served this nation, including my brother-in-law. We greatly appreciate everyone's sacrifice.
Well my wonderful day started without an alarm clock. It is very rare that my husband doesn't set the alarm to get up in the morning. If I had to guess how many times that has happened since we have been married I would say it has been less than 25 times in the last 11 1/2 years. Wowser, that may not seem like a big deal to everyone but it was to me. And on that note another big thanks to my f-i-l, b-i-l, and nephew for feeding the cows this a.m. My plowboy and I made bacon, sausage links, and fresh peach pancakes for breakfast. I even allowed myself a sugary cup of coffee. The kids aren't used to daddy being home in the morning. He has normally gone to work when they get up, so they were quite hyper. After breakfast, we all made a grocery store run and picked up a few items. The next photo was an important purchase for our little lunch celebration. Can anybody guess why?
