Well, I had a fantastically exiting blog post written, but, I can't find the little cord that downloads pictures from my camera. So I will just leave you with little Catherine wearing her Halloween pumpkin shirt for the 4th of July because orange is kind of patriotic, right? It was the only holiday shirt I could find. Plus, I scammed the kids into watching fireworks from the bedroom window by giving them some old Easter candy.

That pretty much sums up my day.


  1. LOL....Glad to see you posting again. I missed your crazy posts!!!

  2. Love it! is there a prize for the most holidays in one photo?? LOL

  3. My kids watched the neighbors across the street shoot off fireworks from our dining room window...

    There with ya hon!


  4. Orange is the patriotic color in The Netherlands. Hooray for The Netherlands!!!! :D

  5. I just found your blog after looking for an update on sweet Victoria- I saw her story on another blog. I just had to stop and say this post totally cracked me up!! I'll be continuing down your blog- my prayers are with you as you get through this adjustment period with the girls. We're hoping to bring home our own angel from RR- Pauline.
