Hooray for the Red, White and Blue!

We’re getting ready at this old house for the 4th of July.

Now all we need are our guests and the food. Maybe I should do a little dusting, too.

In the midst of all the getting ready our kids are moving out of our basement to their new apartment. We moved some major items today so they’ll now be using one of our guestrooms until they move everything to their new location. Although tiny their new flat has a wonderful view of the tops of trees and sky. This new location is just 3 miles from the University which will be nice for our son-in-law’s commute. I think they’ll be happy to be on an upper floor instead of the basement.

We’re hoping the sun makes an appearance in time for our gathering. We’re having pulled pork sandwiches with salads, beans, corn on the cob, and other goodies. My sister is bringing the dessert. Are you celebrating or laying low?

On Monday head over to the Mennonite Girls Can Cook Blog to see my Strawberry Pudding Cake.

Have a wonderful 4th of July everyone!
