Let the Fireworks Begin

"Firework season" actually began for us last night at midnight when Greg and his dog came into the house. I will call it "a season" even though it is a holiday to most families. We say the Christmas season (The reason for the season), because it actually lasts longer that a couple of days. It is only fair to say firework season because it will last more than a couple of days for our family. Next to Christmas it is my favorite time of the year.
This is either the sixth or seventh year for Greg and Randy to have a firework stand. We have watched this little stand that two college boys start, so that they could blow up fireworks, evolve to a much larger business. They now have two stands, and they get to put on two city firework shows.
For me I get to be with family and friends. Not only do we get to have family time, I get to cook for people who actually enjoy eating. This is a treat for me. By 9:30 this morning, I had already got to spend time with  Greg, Justin and his kids, and Jenna. After a lunch with Jenna and Di, I made my first dessert for the season. I chose a peanut butter cream pie. The recipe for this is on the Pass Your Plate blog.

So let the fireworks begins. If you are reading this and are in the area, come buy some fireworks from

  Davis and Miller Fireworks.
If fireworks are not your thing, then come by for a coke, a laugh or if we are lucky - a song with Greg on his guitar. 


  1. Hmmm, we might be by to see you/them tomorrow afternoon. Gotta go to Gunter to empty our garage and give Jill and Dustin the other garage door opener.
