Birthday X 2

Let me just tell you how the 4th of July went down around the Collins residence. 

First up, Tie Dye Tees for the ladies. 
Craft so fun, it had to be re-done!!

Then came the food...
Good lord at the food.

Cucumber Sandwiches
2 Chicken Dips
Country Caviar
Chocolate Chip Cookies
Fruit & Fruit Dip
Pulled Pork
Vidalia Onion Casserole
Home-made Mac & Cheese
Baked Beans
Grilled Corn
Cucumber, Onion & Tomato Salad
Blueberry Crumb Cake
Fruit Trifle 
and More Chocolate Chip Cookies.


I'm still stuffed.

There were also a few intense games of cornhole that went down as soon as it cooled off a little. Mal and I did a little dominating.... Then Kendol and I finished the night watching all of the neighborhood fireworks from our front steps. So thankful to live in such a great place. Thanks so all who make our freedom possible on a daily basis.

Definitely one of the best birthdays for America we've had in a while!!

Now it's time to celebrate mine :)
I started my day with a coke and a chocolate chip cookie..
Not too shabby!! 
But, I'm still a little undecided about the big 2-7..
I don't feel 27.
