~Happy 4th of July!!!~

~We hope you have a Happy Fourth!~
We had a Very Happy 4th! 
We celebrated on the First with our English class. :-)
Here's a few pics of my decor and our celebration for you to enjoy!~
~A patriotic white chocolate, raspberry, blueberry cake I made a few days before the 4th!~

 ~Abigail's FIRST 4th of July!~
 ~I thought Sarah did a great job making this chalkboard for me!~

 ~Luann brought the kids some blue magnetic sand, so I used it to decorate.~
 ~I had fun decorating.  I just looked all around my house for anything I wanted to throw into the decor. :-) ~
~I took my little white frames and used them to spell America.
And wrote "Freedom" with Scrabble letters.~
 ~A fun antique wooden tennis racket case that Phillip found beside the road for me, and then we put a chalkboard inside it. :-) ~

 ~Phillip drew me a flag on my chalkboard.~

 ~I made the Reeses's covered in white chocolate, so I could make them red, white, and blue. :-) ~

 ~A made a 2 layer jello cake.~

 ~The inside of the jello cake.
I put coolwhip and blueberries in between the 2 layers. It was light and yummy!~
 ~Patriotic cupcakes.~
 ~I was happy to find these cute polka dotted cup cake papers!~

 ~I took the leftover red and blue jello from the cake and made some desserts in our glass cappuccino cups.~

 ~Someone gave me this fun red lace.
So, for a touch of decor in the kitchen...I tucked the red lace into a white distressed frame and put a blue and white glass sugar bowl in front of it!  ~
 ~Normally you don't burn candles on Fourth of July (as part of the decor), but it's chilly here! :-) ~
 ~Chocolate Reeses's that I made. We LOVE this recipe!  It is less sweet than normal Reeses's!~
~ I kept thing simple.  Chips and dip, Doritos, Drinks (which Leo and Caro provided), a salad, hot dogs and trimmings, and lots of desserts. :-)
 ~Thanks to Luann bringing us LOTS of Blueberry jello...we had blueberry jello jigglers too, which the kids LOVED!~
~Sarah and a just-awake Baby Abigail~

 ~Elijah took this pic of us.  For our English class we played a Fun game of Scrabble in English, of course!!~
 ~Sweet little Mary~
 ~Our simple place setting.  Since we were going to play Scrabble I couldn't set the table all fancy beforehand. :-) ~

 ~Those cupcakes were ALMOST within Abigail's reach. :-) ~
 ~Bubu, Noah, and Elijah!~
 ~Mary, Sarah, and Valen.~
 ~The kids played with the blue magnetic sand that Luann gave us and made a "dessert!" :-) ~

 ~Noah and Jonathan!~
 ~Caro and I.~
 ~Peek-a-boo I see you! :-) ~
  ~And Thanks to Emily, I had fun red bows to put on my blue shoes. :-) ~
Yes, We had a Lovely time celebrating 4th of July with our friends here in Argentina!

I loved the fourth of July celebration that you could have with your friends! I loved your silhouette Pictures that your guest took of your family. It is a wonderful idea and I guess it was the photography ideas that she had. Sarah did a wonderful job with the letters on the chalk board - she is her Daddy's daughter! I really enjoyed all your July 4th decorations with the little white frames and all. Love, Moma
