Well I finally had a chance to get 4th of July photos worked up. It was such a fun night and I really enjoyed it! Last year I was so sick I couldn't even make it off the couch and after all the fireworks Brett took me to the emergancy room where they decided to admit me to the hospital. I had been running a high fever of 106 for about 3 days and when I went to the doctor they did a blood test and both my red and white cells were almost bottomed out. They put me on medication to see if it would help but by the 4th I knew I was in trouble. It turned out that I had Ehrlichia Chaffeensis otherwise know as a nasty disease you get from a tick. I was in the hospital for about 3 days and took quite awhile to recover. I really don't even remember last 4th of July. So I wanted to make it up this 4th and that we did. We had a few friends and a lot of family over. I did miss my two girls Niki and Jessica but I guess as our kids get older we do have to share them every so often.
Brett decided that he had to mow, exactly what he was mowing I don't know because of the drought the grass is pretty much dead but he said it needed to be mowed. I personally think that he used it as a great excuse to not have to help with all the cleaning lol. Really he is a great guy and is always doing stuff to help but I just can't help but give him a hard time about something lol.
It's not the 4th without Old Glory
I think everyone had a great time.
To see the rest of the photos go to my facebook and like us.

- They always say you can take the girl out of the country but you can't take the country out of the girl. That's me,and now that I am back in the country I couldn't be happier! Thanks to God, we were able to move on to a 40 acre farm. Life on the farm is busy and we are always learning something new. My husband, Brett is the worlds best handyman. He was raised in town but I think that deep down he has always been a country boy. Together we are learning to raise cattle,chickens, and are even venturing into raising goats.We enjoy gardening and we are learning square foot gardening with the help of our mothers. We are striving towards self-sufficient living and hope to be there soon. Along with a passion for the outdoors and animals I also have a passion for photography. I have owned my photography business for about 13 years now. Nothing gives me more pleasure then to photograph a new baby or a couple getting married and beginning a new life together. I hope that you will join us as we learn new things and enjoy life on the farm.
