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

With a Bang

Our Fourth of July didn't look like that THIS year (that photo is from OTHER 4th's though I don't know which) but it was fun.

Tomorrow is the big day (outdoor picnic) and there is much still to do, so I'll only share this photo today. More to come though.

I just had to pop on here quickly to announce the winner of the weird contest. I don't think ANYONE will be surprised to hear that Amy won with her toenail story. In fact, several other commenters TOLD me to vote for you too, Amy. I think you are WELL deserving!
I SERIOUSLY laughed so loud I think I might have woken one or two of the kids up from their sleep (upstairs!) the night I read your story! Golly, that is FUNNY!

Email me at
sgrbear724@yahoo.com to share your address and I will get your prize(s) mailed out to you on Wednesday. Since the prize has been a secret thus far, I'm gonna keep it that way so the package will be that much more fun to open.

Thanks to all who participated. It is good to know I am not alone in the quirky-factor. All of you who didn't participate (I KNOW I have more than 17 visitors), you just keep TELLING YOURSELF that you aren't weird. hehehe

Ah come on Rebecca, weird... Quirky, yes but weird??? I mean peanut butter, olive, and pickle sandwiches are weird! :)

Have a wonderful time tomorrow! I am hoping to sit down later on today to get some much needed letter writing done. With half my crew gone I can get away cooking things like mac and cheese so on to other projects!

Take care and enjoy you day tomorrow with all the friends, children,and books! It sounds like so much fun!! I can't wait until we move back there. I just checked and it will only be a 2 hour and 18 minute drive to your place once we move! Oh happy day!! A short drive!

I know that I'm very weird, but I didn't have time to post a comment with the wedding going on. Have you visited me to view the pics? Lots of good stuff over at my place the past several days!

YEA Amy!!! Congrats on the win....I think...I mean, it means you are the weirdest of all us weird people out there! :P

Hope you have a great party, Rebecca and praying that the weather is beautiful for you!
