Happy 4th of July!!!


We started out our in bed singing Patriotic songs together, it was so much fun. I think we sang God Bless America 10 times but that's what we want for our Nation.  We love this book, I know it simple but thats what makes it beautiful!!!


God Bless America
We then prayed for our Nation and then onto the craft for the day. I searched on the web for a flag,USA,and stars and then cut the shapes out and then I  had our children use them as die cuts. They outlined them with paint and then pulled the die cuts off and it was left with the image. 

USA

D Man pulling the USA cut off of his paper. 

Here is the finished product. You can have them decorate the inside too. 
After craft time onto to the pool, Thank You God for a beautiful day:)

Our Family on the 4th of July!!!
D Man was being a stinker. 

We had friends over for the pool and after the pool we had Guacamole, Chili and Cake. This cake is Gluten free and Wheat free. I got the recipe from http://www.elanaspantry.com/chocolate-cake-coconut-flour-continued/ but we used Coconut Oil instead of Grape seed Oil, The children seemed to like it. 

God Bless America!!!
