Happy 4th and a different kinda Sam.....

There is this kinda Uncle Sam:
made this for the family a very long time ago
And then there is the mystery Sam:

Ry has been so excited for his solo debut on blogger. He is always either pictured with his Sis or is a part of an activity......not the photo model. So he picked his day. And being his version of Uncle Sam for Independence Day was it.
He's such sweetie and loves to "do" whatever we are doing. He does sometimes have trouble staying on task....but then who doesn't right? But this particular photo shoot has been a very strong point for him. Every day for the past week, he has counted down the days until he could wear his red cowboy hat, borrowed red boots from Sissy and his new "celebration" t-shirt. And those are the words he used every time for seven days. This morning he sneaked up behind me into the computer area and shouted.....it's my happy birthday to America day photo shoot. "Did ya know that Oma?"

So from our Uncle Sam to you my lovelies. Happy Birthday America Day!!!!!!!

  11. Ry picked a great day as "his" day and did a great job representing it. Who needs fireworks when you have a firecracker of a kid around, huh? ;) Thanks for a great post!

  15. I'm saving the last picture. Might even keep it in my wallet. Just so I can show it to people who look at me funny and ask, "Why would you give up an scholarship to join the Marine Corps?"

    I think that handsome face saying Happy Birthday American is the best answer in the world.
