Looks like a good time, Gaye.   It was just rainy and gross here all day.   Worst 4th ever.

Happy Independence Day!!!  I spent the whole day cleaning and shopping for our party TONIGHT!  I am working today so I had to get it all ready yesterday.  Ashleigh and I did enjoy the many small firework shows that our many neighbors shot off on our way home from Walmart though... lol.

It was a great day here... too great to spend indoors cleaning and I was just a little jealous of my hubby who was getting the patio and yard in ship shape.  It is supposed to only get to 83 today but a 40% chance of thundershowers tonighht... I hope not cuz we do have some fireworks to play with.

I already made up my cole slaw because it is way better when it sits overnight.  When I get home from work I will only have 2 hours so I will quickly start on the burgers & dogs on my grill-pan (I want to have everything already grilled up when people get there and keeping warm in my electric roaster).  Whip up some creamed corn off the cob, some peach cobbler and if I have time, some peanut butter no-bake cookies (sorry, Tracy). 

Gaye... Roo Ben really looks like a big handful... literally!  And it looks like you BOTH had a great time!!

Since we have had nothing but torrential rain the whole holiday, Daisy, I was ready to jump in my car and head north to have a decent cookout and fireworks tonight, but then you said peanut butter dessert food.   Yuck.   I'll just stay here.   :-)

What's really sad is that I probably could have made it.   It's looking like baseball is going to be rained out all weekend.   I am home, trying to find every excuse in the book not to clean the house.
