Happy 4th of July!

Missing my military man today... do you know this is the 3rd 4th of July that he has missed?--In a row?!

I guess it's better than Christmas.

I have had several people email me and ask what they could do for Jason, as well as my Navy brother, Leo who will be deploying for the better part of a year soon.

Here's what I am thinking...you can email me and request their address and send a homemade card or whatever.. they love that kind of stuff

OR

You can donate to the care package fund and I will put together big boxes (already in progress, I might add) and add your name to a group card. I try to send enough for their crew as well. (Think lots of candy, novelty items to keep the mood light--like sticky hands, slime, puzzles, squirt guns... cookies... magazines...stamps...envelopes..paper.. FUN STUFF.)





Either way is fine... but don't feel obligated to take part. :)

I will leave the link open until July 15th.

Hope you have a wonderful 4th of July!

Holidays alone are tough. I didn't even see fireworks because I didn't want to have the Little Mister out late on my own.

*sigh*
