Another year without accidents. Every year, someone always says "I can't believe we've never had to go to the hospital." Really? If a phrase is said enough, don't people start to scratch their heads and decide not to tempt fate. I guess not because the family is already planning next year's tree explosion.
I don't have one picture of it exploding. I was too busy protecting my family from a very "safe" distance. Each year, they start the tree in a different fashion. The first year, my FIL just lit it on fire. Boring. One year, we had two trees. They put a wire between both and rigged up a bottle rock to catch fire & ride the wire over to the second one. This year, all the men shot Roman Candles until the tree became a ball of fire. Yep. That's how we do the 4th.
We loved reading everyone's memoirs. I've got a couple favorites, but I'll wait to see which are Ava's. We've having a bit of family/wedding drama, so the contest's results may have to wait for a day. Seems like planning a summer wedding in less than 3 months & not in your hometown isn't really an ideal situation. Who would have thought it? Umm, everyone but the couple!
K should also be for "Kid Knits". More on that later.
