My Old Fashion 4th of July..

I started off the morning running in the Watermelon 5k.  Not my best time..but I finished :)
Then it was home to make firecracker cookies, apple pie & chocolate covered pretzels.



Here are some pictures of the goodies (treats).  Enjoy!




My old school pennant banner - turned out pretty cute!


I filled one robot with lollipops
(the other one is holding our forks and knives - didn't get a picture)


 favors were paper fans, water bottles and sparklers


I put the sparklers in this square vase filled with colored rice 
(I found this idea at Makes and Takes)


an old school paper chain & MacGyver style decorations :)


my mom set up tables inside..since it was nasty outside.  
She did a great job with the centerpieces!
I added the printables from paper and cake


the hats were for the lizard and ladybug.  
My mom made the 'firecracker' gifts..full of m&m's and ring pops.


my 2/$1 paper lanterns found at Target's $spot



Even though the weather wasn't ideal...we had a good time with family.  
That's what these holidays are all about.


Next up...the eats!
