4th photos

A few photos from our 4th of July celebration at my parents' home in Charlotte, NC. Great weekend of food, fun and fireworks!

Red, White and Blue parfaits my mom made. And let me add she made a fruit dip that was out of this world yum-o. Take a block of softened cream cheese and mix with 3/4 cup of brown sugar and 1 1/2 tsps of vanilla and add a little milk to desired consistency. You'll want to eat the entire bowl!

My mom's festive table. This picture doesn't do it justice though! She is the party queen. Makes her own invitations, place name settings, etc.

Patriotic (RED velevt) cupcakes in blue Margarita glasses. Clever!

Taking some photos for the parents' Christmas cards...this was #72 I believe so Mr. Pink is not smiling. Amazed the kids still were. We took so many different ones.

Me with my younger brother (back in the country for a week only since he works for the State Department overseas).
