Happy 4th of July

We celebrated our nations independence on Saturday with my husbands side of the family, 
at my niece's house.
It's always an amazing time there as I get to see my two great niece's... 
and Dean-na and Anthony
are the absolute best at hosting at party.
They are both so kind and their home is so very warm and welcoming.

Lorelei was the star of the lens...

And here's my Addie with her best friend forever Olivia.
This is the only good picture I took of Addie,
most of the others were blurry.

I had such an amazing time, there was lot's of great food,
great conversation, hugs, kisses and smiles...
and a few moments with Addie that I will treasure forever!!

And a big, heartfelt happy birthday to my dear friend
I hope your birthday is as amazing as you are!!


  1. I always notice a little red haired girl. My grandma always wanted a red haired granddaughter but never got one.

  4. Good morning, Debbie! All the girls are so cute. I am glad you had a fun celebration with the family. Beautiful shots of your great nieces. Happy 4th of July! Happy Monday, enjoy your new week ahead!

  5. See is adorable!! Happy July 4th

  6. Lorelei is indeed just waiting for a photograph to happen. Love the red hair and the dress is just precious!

  7. They are all so cute and sweet. Yes, that little redhead stole the show. We had a few red's in our family once upon a time! In fact, it was told that our mother (when she was a teenager) had a date for a night, and tried to get rid of her freckles. I can't remember what she used, but she wouldn't even stick her head out the door when the date showed up. I'm sure, if they had telephones back then she would have called in sick. My late brother had those freckles also, but not the red hair.

    I'm SO happy you guys had a wonderful celebration!


  8. Addie, Lorelei and Olivia are so precious celebrating the 4th! Have a wonderful day.
