The 4th of July is tomorrow, and for us Americans that usually means fireworks, lots of red white and blue, and tons of yummy food. Even though I am not living in the States right now I am still going to party it up tomorrow…we are expecting about 40 people at our new house! We aren’t totally settled yet but why wait to enjoy it? As I have been preparing for the big day I have come across a hodge podge of great 4th of July ideas that I thought I would pass on to you!

First up are some fun recipes and crafts…
