What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Late, as usual



Our Fourth of July was casual and low-key, filled with work, work, work.

But around 3:00, I started thinking it would be a shame to let the day go by without SOME festivities, and festivities are always more fun SHARED.

SO very spur-of-the-moment and impromptu, I called my sister and told her and the kids to come over for a S'mores and Sparklers night. (Her hubby had to work, you see)

Which they did.

There is no real photographic genius to show, but here are a few worthwhile ones for posterity.

I told Mattie about the S'mores night and he got right to work making a firepit and some rustic wooden benches.



Aren't they fabulous?! It's great to have a firepit and we've talked about making it a weekend tradition to use it.



Andrew's first S'more was less than delectable.



S'mores, sparklers and laughs until long past dark when we bid the Brown's farewell and tucked our own sweetlings into bed and then Matt and I spread out some blankets and soaked up the last bit of warmth from the fire arm in arm under a bright, nearly full moon.

I can think of nothing better.

S'mores and Sparklers sure say "Happy Fourth" to me! Looks like you all had a great time. The impromptu ideas are usually the best!
