Pray for my baby girl!!!!

I keep meaning to update my blog, then I get busy, EVERY SINGLE TIME!!  Maybe I need to take a notebook with me everywhere I go, so I can write down my ideas, that way I will always have something to write about!!  Anyway....

I found out that my baby girl has to have surgery on Wednesday.  She has to have her adenoids taken out, and tubes put in.  I know it's a pretty routine surgery, but I'm still nervous!!  My girl is REALLY freaked out!!  She did really good at the doctor's office, but as soon as we left, she broke down into tears!!  She is really scared that something is going to happen!!  I don't blame her, that's a lot to handle for a seven year old!!  I'm sure she'll be fine, but please pray for us on Wednesday morning!!!

Oh happy day!!

This is what I wrote on Independence Day, and I forgot to hit publish!!

OH, we had SO much fun!!  We ended up going to Yukon, to the Freedom Fest, which was a long drive!!  Once we got there, we started wandering around, and this REALLY sweet older lady driving a golf cart labeled 'shuttle' picked us up, and while she drove us to the site, she told us all about everything that was going on!  She said there was free ice cream, free watermelon, the Rodeo Opry was there singing, Sandi Patty was going to be singing later this evening.  Sandi Patty!!!  It was awesome!!  The sweet lady also told us that there was a hotdog eating competition too, so that was pretty neat!!  The first thing we did when we got there was get some free watermelon.  It was DELICIOUS!!  The kids just kept saying they wanted more and more!!!  After the watermelon, the girls got washed up while the boys went to the car to get our chairs.  After the cleanup, we went to the ice cream table and got some free ice cream, it was YUMMY!!  When Dan and Matt got back from the car, we found a section of grass to claim, and set up camp!  When it was time, we went and watched the hotdog eating contest, which was REALLY gross, but my kids thought it was HILARIOUS!!!  After the contest, we went and found dinner from the vendors, which was YUMMY!!  All of the food there was amazing!!  After dinner, we just hung out, waiting for the fireworks to start!!  At around 9:30, they started the fireworks!!  The fireworks went on for a good 40 minutes or so, it was GREAT!!  The orchestra played in the background while the fireworks were shooting off, it was BEAUTIFUL!!  Maybe later I'll get a couple of pics up here!!  Overall, it was a FANTASTIC day!!

Happy Independence Day!!!

Happy Day!! =) I love this holiday!! Today has been a really boring day so far, we'v been hanging out at home, cleaning all day, but the deadline is 4pm, and we're getting ready and going to town!! We've been looking at different celebrations in the city, and I'm so excited!! There is free watermelon at several locations, a hot dog eating contest in Yukon, and lots of other fun stuff!! I can't wait!!

Until then, like I said, cleaning all day!! I've been cleaning up my crafty area, finding lots of cool stuff that I had already forgotten about!! I'm really looking forward to getting some new crafts done!!

Last night, I was awake until 4am, working on my greeting cards. I got five cards done, three of them are red, white, and blue, patriotic for the holiday, and the other two are lilac colored flowers, with a white background. I'm planning on finishing up the set, and I'm going to put them on my Etsy page!!

The next thing on my to-try list, is grocery bags!! I've got several different kinds of patterns, for different bags to try!! One of them is a t-shirt bag, which looks REALLY easy!! All you have to do is find a t-shirt that you don't want to wear anymore, sew the bottom seams together, cut a wider hole in the neck, make a hem line, and then cut off the sleeves and sew the seams closed, so it's not ugly. Too easy!!! =) I'm looking forward to making one or twenty!! =)

Also on my to-try list, is a bag used for produce. I want to put a link in here, but the one I added was dead. Hopefully I can find one later, and I can put it with a different tag!

I guess that's it for now, some time either today or tomorrow, I'll post about my weekend excitement! We went out for our anniversary, and we had a BLAST!!! We had so much fun, that it deserves it's own entry!!

I hope all of y'all have a FANTASTIC holiday, and I hope it's LOUD and PRETTY!! =)
