Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD ~ Psalm 33:12a
We celebrate the 4th BIG TIME in small town America. Our morning includes a traditional neighborhood parade with a firetruck lead, homemade ‘floats’ (term used loosely), decorated bicycles and wagons, silly hats & noise makers and lots of smiling faces. The parade lasts all of 7 minutes and then we mingle, eat a hotdog and a slice of watermelon and admire how the kids have grown. The photo above is my girls at the 2005 Pill Hill Parade! It doesn’t get more Americana than this!
The highlight of our afternoon will be the live production, “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” at the Lyceum Theatre in historic Arrow Rock, MO. The original Tom Sawyer movie was filmed in Arrow Rock in 1972, and it looks like it will be a big 35th anniversary celebration. We’ll cap the night off with a potluck dinner and fireworks with family friends.
This 6×6 scrapbook page was one of many projects that I completed last fall for the Stampin’ UP! It was used on the Leadership Displays. This page features Tagger’s Dozen, which you can find in the 2007 Fall/Winter Collection Catalog. The background was French Flair stamped in Craft White ink, accented with Dazzling Diamonds. I used both of the Stampin’ UP! tag punches, Night of Navy and Shimmery White cardstock to create the tag that says, “Sparkle!”
May your Fourth Sparkle!
May God Bless America!
