Today's the 4th of July and instead of my kids being able to listen to the traditional sound of fireworks going off all day, we get to watch it rain and rain and rain. We're hoping that later it will stop for a little while so they can do some poppers.

Not much to show in my stitching. I got the first stripe done on One Nation then I changed to Frosty Knotgarden. I might actually finish the top half of part 2 this weekend then move onto the bottom half.

I've signed up for a couple more Chatelaines. With the exchange rate and the 10% discount, I couldn't hardly resist. I'm converting the silks to HDF to save a little money there too. I'm also thinking of a couple of HAEDs but I have till Tuesday to make a decision to buy with the 25% discount. I really like the new Nene Thomas pieces. I'll let you know what happens there.

Now, I told the boys that if they can agree which movie they want to see, we would go since they can't do anything outside. Right now, Jakob wants to see Karate Kid and Josh wants to see Toy Story 3. If they can't decide, we won't go.

It must be very frustrating for all of you to have rain instead of fireworks. I hope the boys can decide which movie they want to see, so they can have some fun.
Which Chatelaines did you sign up for?
