Special Delivery!

June 20, 2008

Just Arrived

Imagine my surprise when I am sitting at my desk looking out the front window and see a big tractor trailer pulling down our street and it stops in front of our house! What are they delivering? I didn't order anything????

I walk out to see Pat in the garage standing next to this.......I say, what is that......he said that he, along with our neighbor, and my Uncle Kevin, placed an order for fireworks for our 4th of July party! According to Pat, a 4th of July party should be a BLAST and light up the neighborhood! I think with the size of this box he will surely accomplish both!

Are you kidding me....they delivered them just like this....on a big pallet! I am glad that we live off the beaten path and there are acres of open fields all around us, because I don't want these set off anywhere near our house......they make me nervous to say the very least!

I guess this falls into the category.........boys and their toys!

Tub Time

In other news tonight, I attempted to trim Sarah's bangs. Note to self.....never do this again!

Since Sarah has been allowing me to actually do her hair and not pull out the hairbands, we are trying to let it grow, but her bangs are out of control! They are so long and always in her face....when I pull her hair back, the bangs are not long enough to stay back, so I thought....I can just trim a couple of her bangs! Not such an easy task when she is wiggling all over the place. I cut them dry so I could see where they would actually fall on her face, but she moved as I trimmed and they are now a little shorter than normal! It is not the worst that I have seen, but lets say we won't be going to have any professional photos done until they grow out a little!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Uhhhh.....yeah....bangs....don't touch them myslef after a disasterous attempt to "trim" Lia's odd reverse mullet style haircut when we were first home. I cried for three days, got them cut short by a professional and they haven't been touched since (although she has had short cuts in the back). My sister always has a huge 4th of July party and the crowning glory is always the fireworks at the end...although nothing to compare to what Pat seems to have in mind...

Off to the shore tomorrow...we really will talk soon!

LOL look at all those fireworks! My boys would have a blast at your house on the 4th LOL
Ah yes, the "Mommy bangs" LOL I've cut my girls bangs before. The last time I did it our hairdresser said I should not be allowed to own a pair of scissors. : )

Briana's Mom said...

Wow! What a fun 4th!

I am sure her bangs aren't bad at all! I trim Briana's bangs and manage not to ruin her too badly - thank goodness!

Holy cow! Those are some serious fireworks! You are going to have a blast!

We usually have a neighborhood 4th of July party and do fireworks, but this year we will be in San Diego. I am going to miss our little tradition!

I am sure Sarah's bangs look just fine!

Jboo said...

Wow -- that looks like a LOT of fireworks! For years, my hub and sons drove to Missouri to get the "big" fireworks. Always scared me! Have a great weekend.
