Getting ready for the 4th of July!

Are you getting ready for the 4th too?  The lovely Miss V baked red an blue cupcakes this morning.  She is experimenting with her baking skills.  These batches were colored with jello. 
Here she is channeling June Cleaver........
Miss V loves vintage style, especially the 50's.

Here she is with some edible sparklers that we made, along with some cake bon bons.

Look at all our sparklers!!! 

Then of course we needed to fuel ourselves and the big guy.........

Mmmmmm  hot dogs hot off the grill!
By this time Miss V had snatched my camera and was taking pictures of everything in sight. 

I may come to regret this one.

The big guy looks more serious than I do!  Hot dog condiments are serious business!

Cupcakes are frosted.  Tomorrow we will put the red and blue sprinkles on them, we know from experience if we do it tonight they will bleed all over and bleeding cupcakes might be perfect for Halloween, but not so much for the 4th of July.

And here are our sparklers ready to be served in our red tin cans filled with red white and blue candies!   How festive are we??
We also felt the need to pause for some root beer floats.   
and yes, that IS a fireworks tote bag.  The bag lady has a bag for EVERY occasion!

Your Independence Day preparations look such fun, Mare, and how clever Miss V is! Edible sparklers - now that's a newie to me.
(And thank you so much for saying nice things about my selvage bag on Karen's blog. What can I say - I LOVE pink!)
