Goodness Gracious

to borrow one of Samantha's favorite phrases.  Can you believe it's July?  As in "half-way to Christmas"?  Crazy.

Samantha has discovered that she is 2 years old.  Her new favorite word is "no."  She's refused to go to music class at Mother's Day Out the last two sessions.  You can't blame a 2 year old for not understanding that everyone has totally re-arranged schedules to enable someone to serve as a personal aide so that she can attend a class with the big kids, but I do feel a little sheepish.  The music teacher is Sam's favorite person there, so she personally comes down to feed her lunch.  On Thursday, Sam threw up on her.  I showed up for pick-up and neither of my kids were wearing what they went to school in.  Never a sign of a great day. 

Flashing back a bit, we had a fantastic 4th of July.  Papa was awesome, as always, with the girls. We took them to the July 3 symphony event (complete with cannons and fireworks).  We didn't get home until 11 pm, and Sam's reception of the fireworks was such that we did not find it necessary to go out for more on the 4th.

We did, however, enjoy the annual parade at Market Street.

Sam was hot and overwhelmed.  We stood in front of Tommy Bahama, and she kept begging to go inside.  "Please, shopping!" she said, over and over.  Look out, Daddy.

Mimi made sure we were all dressed for the occasion.  And that everyone had a wardrobe buddy.  What a great looking bunch of patriots, eh?

We had take-out barbeque for dinner, but I did "go Martha" enough to put out a red, white, and blue dessert spread.  I admit to buying the cupcakes, but I soaked those berries in rum ALL by myself.  Mmmm...

Even Samantha's favorite stuffed bear got into the spirit, thanks to a gift from Auntie Carolion.

I am so excited that Samantha is finally old enough to start enjoying some holiday traditions, even if she doesn't necessarily understand the holiday itself.  Christmas, here we come!!!
