My Fireworks Stand!

 This is my life for the next few days until the Fourth Of July!  I do love it tho - selling fireworks is a blast!  People get excited to celebrate the holidays and you meet a ton of interesting new people.  You also meet a few who just want to blow stuff up. LOL

I am posting a few photos of our stand from last year.  We start selling tomorrow so I hope to get some new pictures of the stand!  It makes for some long busy days but I wouldnt trade it for anything!  Plus last year I lost like 5 pounds!  Gotta LOVE that!

I hope to post again before the holiday is here but if I dont I want to wish every a safe and very fun Fourth of July!!

Fourth of July Toes and nothing else!

Some days just dont go as planned!  Yesterday was one of them for me.  It wasnt so bad in the fact that I did get the camper ready to go for our Fireworks stand and I as you can see above got my toenails painted.  I just didnt get the house as cleaned as I wanted to - so hopfully I will make up for it today.

Thing is, I had a whole blog that I was going to post with my Fourth of July crafts.  I was then going to post a photo of my toes painted with my nieces.  In my head it was going to be very cute.  I got my toes done and then went to work for a while.  And then my baby toe went rogue and took it out on the stool in the kitchen.  The toe then went from bad to worse.  I dont know for sure if it is broken but it for sure is swollen and purple.  Actually kind of red white and blue today so maybe it was just trying to get in on all the holiday excitement.

After that, not a whole lot got done.  Especially after it started to throb.  Oh well such is life!  My sweetheart did have to point out that I did injure my foot twice during fireworks season last year so maybe its for good luck?!

Grandma Camp!

 Last week my mother and daughter held "Grandma Camp" for the other grandkids!  They held it everyday in the afternoon from 1 - 3 pm.  They made alot of crafts each day, had a snack and played a few games.

 They painted bird houses!

 They made smores!

Here they are holding their purses!

Here is a photo of my daughter showing them how to make their daily craft (she is the one with the brown long hair and white t- shirt!)

In the end they were all had a great time and Grandma (my mom) and my daughter were worn out.  I still think it is a bit early to ask if they are going to do it again next year!

National Flip Flop Day!

In honor of Nation Flip Flop Day today I thought I would post the flip flops I have been making.  They are super easy to make and cute to wear!.  The photo is my niece modeling her pink flops I recently made.  Its hard to photograph a moving target but she is very cute!  She was all dressed and ready for Grandma Camp 2011!

If your wanting to make some all you need are cheap flip flops, long balloons and sissors.  I just cut the long balloons into thirds and then double knotted them around the flip flops (tightly)  I then cut the balloons into strips and fluffed them up!  I love easy crafts! 

I did make some red white and blue ones for my fireworks stand that I was also going to show but my teenage daughter has been waering them around and just happened to wear them mowing the lawn this morning.  So, lol you can guess that they need a good cleaning!
