Thinking About...The 4th of July. We were getting ready for my brothers party and Gigi asked, "are we going to a birthday party?"...well YES! It is America's birthday...Gigi, "are you just kidding?" hahaha Mike and I were rolling... So what was Gigi's reaction? "Oh then I need to wear a nice dress!"- yes sweet girl, you should. Good thing we had this gorgeous one in the closet and the patriotic ombre shoes we made together! It was really fun going "all out" for the day and showing our patriotism. I am so grateful on holidays like these for our military and those that have sacrificed and fought for our freedom. I think of my Grandpa, Charles Cleaton, who bravely defended our freedom in world war 2...he was a bombadier in the b17 planes that flew over Europe. Also I am so grateful for the service of my father-in-law Charles Kent for his 30 years of service in the Army, even becoming a full colonel. I pray our own Charles will be as courageous, brave and bold as his namesakes.
ohhh and in these pictures Gigi is holding a patriotic wand. We made it together...we painted a stick blue and tied red,white and blue ribbon on it. poof. you have a new exciting toy.
I ADORE my nieces and nephews....who is older...the twins or charlie?
Watching... My hubs discovered a show on Amazon Prime called "Rome" we are 4 episodes deep and so far it's good. Not crazy about it yet, but I like it.
