4th of July Decorations

Happy 4th of July. My house is all decked out to celebrate the birth of this great nation!
This is our land patriotic house, a star Uncle Sam and a funky wooden girl on top of a flag sit the top of my piano.
One of my favorite things is switching my decorations around for each holiday. 
I love my metal Statue of Liberty and Uncle Sam. 
The 9/11 statue is a great reminder of all who serve us daily and sometimes lose their lives in the process.
My coffee table. 
Every year when I pull out this funky looking Uncle Sam that sits on my couch - it makes me laugh. He's very unique. 
My Uncle Sam on my porch with the rose and flag boarder around my front door.
The fun plaques I've found through the years hanging around the front door.
I love the cute Uncle Sam wind sock I found a couple of years ago.
My 4th of July house adorned with a few American Flags swaying in the breeze. 

I hope you have a fun and safe 4th of July!

Happy Birthday America!

Jason, The Tattoo Artist!

While Jason was visiting California for his grandma's 75th birthday, a few of his dad's friends wanted Jason to give them a tattoo. 

Marion was up first.
A hummingbird tattoo - which represents hope. 

Tattoo artist is the one and only - my son, Jason.
 On Marion's wrist, her hummingbird tattoo! 

Marion posted that she has been seeing hummingbirds for months and miraculously (since I'm a recovering bird-hater) they have been giving me much peace and always a small bit of hope for each day. Now my hope is here to stay.
 Next up is Larry's partner Mitch. You may remember that Larry was in Boise getting his own tattoo from Jason here. 

Mitch surprised Larry by getting the exact knotted rope tattoo. Awe, how sweet!
Mitch's knotted frayed rope tattoo. 

This is what Mitch posted about his new tattoo:

Holy Contributing to the Delinquency of Minors....

I woke up this morning with a tattoo. Boo-hoo, I'm almost 52 with my first tattoo! I'm just happy that I'm not having to call it "Batman and Redness." It feels and looks fantastic! Thanks to our awesome and talented son, Jason and my husband, Larry, for holding the light bulb while I lay on Marion's rather solid dining table!

Actually, I've always wanted a vine between my toes, over top of my foot and up the ankle. But I know my endocrinologist would have a fit. We diabetics can't mess with our feet. 

Larry said: "Mitch can't believe you are doing this ..... Love it!
It's time for Candy to get her new tattoo from tattoo artist Jason. The out of state tattooist has been very busy the past 2 days!!!
Candy's tattoo has sentimental feelings for her: 

She posted: "So I got the tat Justine wanted to be her first tat today from Jason. I love you and I love my ink!!! Justine .... there are no words for how much I love and miss you. 

What a great tribute tattoo. Beautiful!


Jason was busy doing what he loves. The tattoos turned out beautifully and I know everyone loved them!

Barb's 75th Birthday!

 Happy Birthday to you!
 Happy Birthday to you!
 Happy Birthday Dear Barb!
 Happy Birthday to you!
 AND many more!
 Barb is Larry's mom.
Larry is Jason's dad.
So that makes Barb, Jason's grandma!

Jason was able to fly out and surprise Barb for her birthday! 
 I'm glad that he was able to go. Barb looks so tiny against the boys.
 3 generations! Awe!
Candy, don't know who is in front on Candy in yellow/navy shirt. Jason, Susan, Barb, Larry and Mitch.

What a fun a fun time celebrating 75 years young!

Happy Birthday Barb!
