Independence Day

Yesterday we celebrated our country's independence as a free nation.  As truly patriotic people, I loved cooking up ribs, tater salad, baked beans, etc.  My boyz even spent some time decorating the house with some red, white, and blue and we ate off the red and blue plates.  If I'd been thinking, we'd even have sung the patriotic songs that I so love.

My youngest was especially exhuberant and chose to exert his independence in an unexpectedly age-appropriate way:

I can't believe I'm going to have to cut the rest of his hair to match this landing strip in the center of his head.  Not only did we take his scissors and explain to him that bald isn't THAT beautiful, but we had to take them a second time as he snuck away to finish the job.
