Happy Independance Day!

And in the words of the book that the kids love...
"And that is how Wacky Wednesday began."
JWS decided
amid
peer pressure 
to cook a turkey
for
Fourth of July instead of grilling.

So...
I made the stuffing.

and homemade noodles
(amid a five hour power outage yesterday).

And if that wasn't wacky enough...
this went by my kitchen window this morning.

Tom
of
Tom and Jerry.
Apparently our household is closer to
Halloween
and
Thanksgiving
than
Independance Day.

Tyler has figured out that if he keeps his
body covered,
he doesn't get hurt as bad when he falls.
Apparently,
his
Halloween costume
fit the bill perfect,
even in the
100 degree weather.

Camera shy
Jerry
also made an appearance,
but you know how those mice are.
I could not get the picture! 

Hope everyone is having a great holiday!

Mine will be better when Shelby and Kendall show up
with the
PUMPKIN PIES!!!!!

Haha! You made me chuckle. I agree...I would much rather skip over the 4th and head right into fall! Loved your post. What a memory!

Our families should have been together...we had ham and potatoes!?!
Plus in 100 degree heat we had the "Men in Black" there with full on three piece suits and home made alien weapons.
It is good to know there are others out there like us!
Enjoy your day!

I almost did the same...I was so hungry for turkey. I fixed a ham instead. Glad you had a nice day. That little kid looks so hot...
