Great start to the weekend!!!

Anyone else have a July 4th hangover!!??  No, I didn't drink, but I ate pretty much anything I could get my hands on!!!  LOL!

The day started out with a trip to the theater to see How to Train Your Dragon 2!!!  What a fantastic movie!!  The first one is one of my all-time-faves, so I was worried this wouldn't live up to my expectations.  It was just as good, and maybe even a hair better!!!  There was a sad part of the movie where Maddie and I were a blubbering mess and had ran out of napkins!  (but hey, that's what sleeves are for, right??!!)  And yes, I totally gorged myself on popcorn.  (i am a bit of a popcorn freak!)

The rest of the day was spent with family, and ended with the best fireworks show ever!!!  Lots of smiles and laughs to be had!!

Maddie & Hunter.  
(my SIL attempting to photo-bomb, but just ended up looking cute!)

Chris & I.

Here's a quick card to share today-

Went for a "shabby chic" look on this card.
