Happy 7th of July!

Monday, July 7, 2008
I hope that everyone had a great 4th of July weekend. We certainly had a great one! I really, really missed having Nick and Chris home. But, we did get to have brunch with Nick (and Kara) on Sunday morning. Also, My sister and niece (her youngest, Maggie) and Kara and her Mom and Dad were able to make it to the party of the 4th, so that was incredibly nice!

For those of you wondering how Asa and Haver did being "locked up" in the laundry room, they were just fine! Except....around 8:00 p.m. I was missing them and feeling a bit guilty about them being stuck in the house. So, (against my better judgment...whatever that means...) I decided to hook them up to their leashes (the ones that Rod got when we first got them so that I could take them out to "do their business" without them running off). I brought them outside to "do their business" and visit with a few people who were outside enjoying the beautiful weather. Asa was really out of control, which surprised me because he is usually the better behaved of the two of them. Haver was just kind of hanging back, with part of the leash in his mouth. He looked so cute, like he was walking himself. Being "cute" is something I should realize is a cover-up of what is really going on....(remember my "better judgment?) suddenly the leash went completely slack and off went Haver! He wasn't "walking himself," he was chewing his leash into two pieces!! ARG!!!! With the help of a friend's wonderful son, we were able to get both of the naughties back into the laundry room where they stayed until everyone was gone and all of the food was picked up!

I bought this at Nell Hill's when I went to Kansas City with the P.E.O.'s! My friend Mary suggested using it to hold silverware for parties!

My sister Kathleen and my niece Maggie!

Party animals waiting for the fireworks display!

I'm going to close this posting for now. The dogs are sleeping and it really looks like a good idea.

Thanks for reading.

I love that silverware holder you got at Nell Hill. Great idea! Looks like you had a lot of fun, even if you did spend a little time chasing dogs! Happy Belated 4th to you and your family.
