Happy 4th of July

Another week with no Internet. If I didn't have this phone I don't know what I'd do. The cable people were supposed to be here Wednesday but they didn't show up. No phone call, nothing. I find that so rude! Hopefully we'll be up and running soon.

The foundation has been finished on the house and there's gravel in the driveway, but they haven't done any work on the house since Tuesday. I am not the most patient person and having the house sitting there really sucks! They had better get moving next week!

We're just hanging around the house here today relaxing. We should be able to see the fireworks from the house here tonight. I don't generally let the kids stay up, mean mommy I know, but they'll have many years when they get a little older.

Hope everyone has a fun and safe 4th!!

*** The fireworks were great. Sam did go to bed before they started. He was really tired. Ella stayed up and really loved them. About halfway through though she really wanted to go to bed. She was all tuckered out. A good time was had by all!

Thank you for getting me back up on the blog. I missed not being able to check in on everyone. Can't wait to hear more about the new house. Sounds like a "house warming" is coming soon. Sammy and Ella look like they love the outdoors. However...I did notice that my niece and nephew didn't have any sun protection for their eyes...Children receive 80% of their UV damage by the time they are 16. I'll be quiet now.
New sunglasses arrived that I think Ella might like. They are pink with bling on the temples. Might have to get those to her before the summer ends.
Love Sammy's short hair. He is so adorable as is our Ella.
Keep the pictures coming. Especially of the kids and of the new house.
