Fourth of July

Clara got to wear a matching dress with her cousin Caroline!

 And be doted on by all four grandparents...



And Mom and Dad, too...

It was a grand Fourth of July celebration complete with all things red, white and blue...

And the love of good friends and family...

Of course, I couldn't resist a little photo shoot of my own, with Clara in her flag dress and also in her ladybug outfit, bought by her Great Great Aunt Shirley for Cousin Caroline's first Fourth of July last year and passed on to Clara for this year. 

We're thankful for this great country, the freedoms that we have and the blessings of summer celebration with all of us together!  Happy Fourth of July!


  1. Love the last picture! Silly Clara! Is she going to be a redhead!?!?! xoxo

  2. I was walking the mall today for the first time in probably 3 weeks and one of the older ladies who walks daily came up and asked me how Clara was doing. She said,"I still pray for that baby every night." I said, "Me, too." Love the new pictures and hope you got to relax a little and sleep some. You have got to be sleep deprived by now.

  3. Pictures are worth a thousand words...thanks! Happy 4th of July to all of you:)

  4. Your pictures made me SMILE! I'm still overwhelmed at God's grace and care in little Clara's life. You would never know what she has gone through (and YOU'VE gone through) from these pictures! It's truly amazing! Glad you had such a great weekend!

  5. Talk about putting some sparkle in my 4th! Great pics, so very blessed, such love.

  6. So glad to see "Angel Face" looking so happy. You'd never know what she's been through. Beautiful !!

  7. Don't know Betsy, but she is spot on! My heart swelled and eyes filled with tears of joy. Smiles all around!

  8. Absolutely love seeing the new pictures; her smile makes me smile! She certainly is a cutie - and again, what a wardrobe! She has the cutest outfits! Wow. Thanks for the update! What a wonderful way to spend the holiday.
