Stars & Stripes in the hood!

Our neighbors hang this beautiful, massive flag over their driveway during patriotic holidays.
I hope that when people drive by it that it means as much to them as it does to all of us.
This is one of those things that make our neighborhood magical!
He has a very MacGyver technique to hanging this. I Love it.
Of course, we're displaying our beautiful colors!
Happy Birthday America!
I'm so thankful to live in this country.
We're planning to celebrate America's birthday with all of our wonderful neighbors at a backyard BBQ!
I'm making sun tea with mint out of Dennis garden.
I think we've perfected the recipe:
We set this container in the sun all day, add 6 family size Louizanne tea bags, a handful of mint, and 6 cups of sugar.
It's PERFECT on the rocks!
Rhett even got in on the stars and stripes this week.
Check out this new muslin swaddler blanket made by Aden & Anais.
I can't wait to wrap him up in it!!!
How much more American can this be?
Rhett's Aunt Laura delivered his little wagon nursery painting yesterday and it's absolutely gorgeous!
Acrylic paintings take about 2 months to dry so it's still very wet and has to sit in the laundry room to dry.
It's made of 3 1x2ft panels.
I can't wait to hang it over his crib for a little punch of color!
Thanks Laura, this is a priceless gift!!!
We'll enjoy it for years to come.
I'm officially 40 Weeks Pregnant today!
Today is Rhett's due date...July 4th, 2010
Will we see fireworks tonight or will we meet "our little firework?"
