the 4th

We had a full day on the 4th. I baked almost all day and made these little beauties, along with a few other things.

These might look familiar if you get, or have seen the Martha Stewart magazine this month. They were on the cover! They are time consuming but really easy. You just make regular sugar cookies, cut them out, bake them, frost them with white icing and then pipe circles onto the white in red and blue. Take a tooth pick and draw lines through the circles to create different designs.

We went over to my Aunt and Uncle's house for dinner to celebrate the 4th as well as my little cousin's 2nd birthday!

We went over to the Hilden's as well, so after all that I was close-to-tears tired and we sadly didnt even make it to fireworks. I'm such a traditionalist that this really bummed me out, but our town's celebration is this weekend so we have those fireworks to look forward to!

Anna and I made them too. They were delicious and completely 'merican.
