Happy 4th of July!

...isn't Nora a cutie?

and, yes, call us "over-the-top" - but we have bunting across the entire top of our house...we're "big" on being patriotic :)

I hope you all have a wonderful day full of fun, fireworks, and yummy BBQ

But, above all else, may we all truly realize how wonderful it is to live in this wonderful country.

God Bless!post signature


  1. Such a cutie, and I love the bunting!

  2. What a sweet dog! So cute! I might just have to try the bunting next July because that looks adorable and so patriotic - I love it!

  3. Awww your dog is adorable and so festive! And Happy 4th to you and your family!

  4. What a beautiful dog. She is very good to sit still for pictures.

  5. Your dog is just too darn adorable I can't stand it!! :D
    Hopefully you had a safe and happy 4th!!

  6. Aww...you are all so sweet :)
    Nora actually seems to know that when I have my camera in my hand that she should sit still and smile. She loves getting her picture taken

    We had a great 4th! :)

  7. Oh my goodness!! soo cute and love Nora's smile!!!

    We had a chocolate lab - "Liberty", but when our son(14years old at the time) was diagnosed and going through chemo, it was too hard with us at the hospital & Liberty was feeling it (she was his dog).

    We thank the Lord that our son is a strong and healthy 19 yr old in his 2nd year of college. ...and Liberty is happy and with dear family friends in New York with a "sister lab".

    Happy 4th!
    Blessings & Aloha!

  8. I don't think it's over the top -- it looks great!
