Happy 4th!

Happy 4th of July!  I have been mulling over the name of my blog for quite some time.  I knew it was long when I created it, but the more I thought about it, the less I liked the name.  Since I have only a couple of followers, I decided to make the change and rename my blog to something shorter (and I kind of like it better!). 

Our town, Round Rock, Tx, has an annual 4th of July parade and my son's cub scout pack was in the parade.  So we were up and about pretty early today and hanging out with all the others in the parade.  It was a lot of fun.  I wish I could have gotten some pictures, but I was riding in the truck and wasn't able to see the parade.

There will be fireworks tonight but I decided to let my hubster and son enjoy them and I'm staying home with our new puppy.  She is still too young to take with us in large crowds and I didn't want her to stay in her kennel for a long time, so she and I are having our own little party involving chew toys and a tennis ball in the back yard.

My son and I will be leaving for Colorado Springs on Saturday to go see my sister.  She lives 5 minutes away from where the fires were.  It is so sad that part of the city is destroyed.  My heart goes out to all the families who lost their homes and to all the volunteers and firefighters who helped.

I'm finally starting to get my crafting mojo back and am hoping to start working on my scrapbooks again.  I haven't been able to make too many crafts or work on my scrapbooks for over a year now as I got really burnt out last year.  Thankfully, I am wanting to start working on all of my stuff again, I just need to find time to do so.  Who knows... maybe I'll even start keeping up with my blog more.  Stranger things have been known to happen. :-)
