Family Night: Homespun Fourth

I hope you all had a great weekend! I know you were all looking forward to seeing pictures of my Homespun Fourth party - but this bug we had just has been awful! So, we weren't able to host our party this weekend. Bummer.

We did grill out and enjoy a yummy meal together and do sparklers with Emily and Rachel. I look forward to being able to do our Homespun 4th party another year!

I'm so thankful you are feeling better! I know it was disappointing not to be able to host your Homespun Fourth party -- looks like you made the best of it with your sweet family. :) Love you, Mom

oh no! I am so sorry you weren't able to have your homespun 4th! I was definitely looking forward to hearing about it! I hope you are all feeling much better now though! Flu bugs can be sooo hard to get rid of!

Looks like the girls had fun with the sparklers anyway!!! I hope you still enjoyed your 4th! :)

It looks like you had a great time. Sometimes when things don't work the way we want, they turn out even better than we could have imagined.

I'm sorry you couldn't have your big celebration; you all look like you had fun anyway.

For all you bloggers who read Monica's post....she really lives what she writes. When I was recently hospitalized with surgery, she made a point of visiting me in her busy schedule, and she doesn't even really know me that well. God bless her!

What a bummer- I know you were really looking forward to that. I hope you guys are on the mend and feeling one hundred percent soon!

We didn't even do sparklers this year. I was in birthday party mode and put the kids to bed early to work on our celebration ;) We basically slept and worked through the fourth :)

Hope you are all getting better!

i know i should say i'm so sorry you were sick, but all i could think of was: i'm so glad i'm not the only one who was sick over the holidays! (i know, i'm sick!)

hopefully you will have a grand time doing your party later.

I understand about the bug hitting hard. My daughter is sick with something right now. No fun on a holiday, when you like to celebrate.Girls are sure cute with the sparklers.

I'm sorry your cookout & get-together didn't turn out ~ but like you said ~ something to look forward to in the future! :-) I hope you are all feeling much better. Cute family photo!

Have a wonderful week, Monica!
