Getting Ready for the Fourth!

I’m back in blog land! Vacation Bible School was so good this year and, amazingly, I don’t feel as physically worn out as I normally do. I think it’s because I’ve been doing the mother-of-a-17-month-old work out daily. Thank you so much to my guest bloggers who held down the fort here while I was busy jumping, dancing, teaching, laughing, and being blessed! If you missed any of their posts, you can see them here.

Now that VBS is out of the way and the weather is finally warming up around here, I figured we should actually get ready for the Fourth of July!

My star wreath is hanging on the front door. 
(This was especially fun as it was the project that motivated me to start this blog a year ago!)

I made Jace some patriotic plaid shorts.

(Had to share a flashback of the romper I made him last year for the fourth. Oh, he’s grown so much!)

And I felt like doing some sewing today, so I made myself a comfy, knit, can-be-patriotic dress!

I’ll share more about it tomorrow when I can actually get some pictures in the daylight!

What are you doing to get ready for the fourth?


  1. I love your dress, so pretty. Can't wait to see how you made the neckline. And thank you so much for the two other websites, I'll check them out. I was also adviced about Orange. Good to have you back. Tone


I appreciate comments so much! I'll do my best to reply to you here in the comments section, especially if there is a question so future readers can see the answer.
