Happy Fourth of July!!! It sure didn't feel like the Fourth over here. We went to church then came home to make chicken currie. It was pretty good, but it wasn't the usual watermelon, bbq, homemade ice cream kinda good. While we ate, we reminisced about past 4th of July Celebrations....last year we were in Philly with friends, the year before I was in Rhode Island. We brainstormed ways to make us feel more festive, so we sang the classics: America and the national anthem...but it didn't quite do it for us. It was then that I had the brilliant idea to make homemade fireworks. Now, I'm not usually sarcastic, but that italicized brilliant was meant to be read very sarcastically.

We looked into buying some fireworks earlier in the week, but they were way out of our weekly market budget...hence the paper confetti fireworks! The whole thing turned into a hot, silly mess. That said, we giggled a lot and had a good time (Granted, I always have a fun time with Cree...even if we are doing dishes). I love how the photos of Cree came out...mine on the other hand...Well, let's just say I don't think I did a very good job of transferring the "firework vision" I had in my head. Mine look a little like I just spit something up. It will make for a fun 4th of July memory.
