For us.....the Fourth of July happens up at the farm. It is a tradition that I hope sticks around for many, many, many years to come. It has been that way since BEFORE I was born, and we will be celebrating Sugar Bear's 7th "Fourth of July Picnic" at the farm tomorrow. We are very excited. It is also a tradition for Sugar Bear to wear something her mama made for her. Interestingly enough....I usually only make her something every other year, and it still fits the following year.
I thought it would be fun to post some pics from the last 6 celebrations.
2005 (Sugar Bear was 7 months old)
I made the hair bows.
Here she is with Cousin S. They are 3 weeks apart in age.
2006 ( Sugar was 1 1/2 years old, and I made her dress.)
2007 (Sugar was 2 1/2 years old.)
Dress is from the previous year.
New tutu that I made.
2008 (Sugar Bear was 3 1/2 years old and I made the shirt and pants.)
2009 (Sugar Bear was 4 1/2 years old, and the outfit is from the previous year.)

Have a wonderfully, happy Fourth of July!
