Happy Birthday Jubilee!

 Hi all! Libby here. Jubilee's birthday was yesterday it her party was soooooooooooo awesome!
She had a cupcake theme, which was so creative, but she said she did it cause she loves cupcakes so much.
When I walked in I said "Since I know you love veggies soooooooooooo much, I brought you this giant zucchini for your B-Day! Aren't you happy?!" "Yeah, this is really great, Libby," replied Jubilee, her voice dripping with sarcasm,"Come on, Libby, take that present out from under your shirt." "My friends are all to smart for me! First Liz, (see HERE) then you! I need some better ideas!" I said pulling my present out and giggling.
So after a bit of talking, we played pin the cherry on the cupcake. Jubilee, of course, went first.
"Seriously?! I'm losing? Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Just kidding, I don't mind."
Marie was next. I got to spin her. "Okay Marie, you or Addy better win, or else Jubilee will win, and goodness know we can't have that!" "Hey!" "I'm kidding, I'm kidding!"
Addy won.
Here's how it ended up.
Now it's............. "Present time! Present time! Open a present and see what's inside!" "Uh, Libby, that's what I am doing."
Marie-Grace's present was doll clothes.
"Great! I really needed a summer outfit!"
Next came an origami book from Addy which Jubilee says she's wanted "FOREVER!"
Last came MY GIFT!  Best for last!  Not really, but it's fun to say it.
"Second Hand Lions?! I LOVE that movie! We've had to barrow it from the Library till now! Thanks SOOOOOOOO much, Libby!" 
Then we had the cupcakes! Yum, yum, yum! Jubilee told me she and Addy had so much fun decorating these. I can see why, can't you?
Do my eyes look like hard boiled eggs here? I believe my comment was: "Is is elly ood!" (this is really good).
"These are really good if I do say so myself."
 After food, we were going to watch Mayor Cupcake but Jubilee decided to watch Second Hand Lions instead. "Because it's just SUCH AN AWESOME MOVIE!" she said.
Oh, and did I mention that this was a campout party? In her yard. It was amazing fun. Jubilee and I had a pillow fight and I'm almost sure we stayed up till 1:00 but not entirely, because Jubilee has lost her watch. I glad I got to go Jubilee's incredible party, but I'm even more glad that God gave me an awesome friend like Jubilee.
Who's your best friend?

My favorite things about summer

 Good day pleasant readers! Yesterday I thought out my five favorite things about summer and decided to share them with you.
  There are so many in summer,  while the rest of the seasons are rather lacking in this beautiful addition to God's creation.
 You don't only do this in summer, but there is more time in this wonderful season.
 I'm not sure why I like this so much, but I do. I had one just yesterday with Liberty.
 Some people would put flowers in this category, and it certainly is a part of summer's loveliness, but flowers seem to stand by themselves. And there are so many other lovely things that one can see in summer. Clouds, animals, other plants, blue skies, I love it all!
  There is so much time in summer, to post, or sew, or play with Libby. These are all such a delightful parts of our vacations.
What are your favorite things about summer?

Happy Fourth of July!

 Hi all! Happy 4th! We are sincerely hoping that your  holiday has been as good as ours has.
Here's what we had for breakfast yesterday. I would like to inform our readers that this is not our picture but the picture from which we got our inspiration.
Anyway, after breakfast we went to a nearby town to watch a parade. Now that was fun.

Look at the teeny little tractor!
And the teeny little ponies!

Later in the afternoon, we went swimming at the local pool (since it was free for fourth of July). This picture was from last year when Liberty went swimming on the 4th of July, because we did not have a picture from yesterday.
And then of course, there were FIREWORKS! They were spectacular!
Evan if this sounds cheesy, I am glad to be american. I mean, I can worship God without being put in prison, I have freedom of speech, freedom of  food (well maybe not all the time), and tons of other great things I wouldn't have if I lived in another place. Anyway, thanks for letting me ramble on like this.
What did you do for the 4th of July?
