Happy Memorial Day!

 "Today we celebrate, our country, the United States of America, and all who have served our country to keep us safe."

This was my speel this morning to my 3 girls~ ages 7, 9, and 10.  They think today means the beginning of summer, "shorts weather", cake and pop for the day.  Oh, and a day off from school.  This actually has been a 4 day weekend of picnics and red, white and blue.  And everyday, we are trying to take a moment to think of all those who have served us and our country.

Do you have this cake too on Memorial Day?  We do and it is delicious!

There are many ways to decorate and celebrate for the holiday!   

~Use a glass bowl as a centerpiece and fill with glass balls in Red, White and Blue.  A simple and easy way to show your colors. 
~Visit some of your favorite blogs for ideas and delicious recipes for the holiday picnics you will be attending.
~Send a note to a member of our Armed Services and say "Thank you" for their dedication and sacrifice.
~Drop off dinner or a special dessert to a family who has a husband, wife, brother, sister in the service and thank them for their sacrifice.

There are numerous ways to show your gratitude and  celebrate the beautiful day and unofficial start to the summer!

Happy Memorial Day!
