The Noisy Holiday

Hi Everybody, 
It's that time of year again, Kaboom Day or as the peeps call it 4th of July. I've got to admit, it's our least favorite holiday. Some of us, like Norma Jean and Lola and Mackey are totally terrified of the noise. Sebastian and Noah bark back at the booms and Tess, Bailey and Sydney just tremble and stay close to Mom. I just do my best to get thru it.
 This year Mom tried to cheer us up by baking some Kaboom Day cookies. She made sugar cookies from the Heart Association cookbook. She made them look like stars, then she iced them pink, white and blue for the holiday. She says it's hard to make red icing without using up the whole bottle of coloring.

 Then she cut some of the cookies into littler stars and iced them plain white for us. And look what else she added.... SPRINKLES!!
 Now that's what I call a holiday treat, iced sugar cookies with sprinkles. Thanks, Mom.
Try to stay safe everybody and keep your ears closed. Oh yeah, today is Sebastian's gotcha day. He's a good guy and we're all happy that he found us.
Your pal, Fudge

When we saw the first picture, we thought 'where are the sprinkles?!' Glad you got some. Happy Gotcha Day, Sebastian, and happy Kaboom day everyone else. We hope the kabooms are short and limited to the 4th!

Those sure are some tasty looking cookies. We had a lot of rain for the start of the day and then showers off and on the rest of the day, even now.

We are hearing a lot of booms out there too, but so far all seems to be well with Misty. Lightning doesn't seem to mind them either.

Happy Fourth of July!!!

Woos - Lightning and Misty

Tell Mom there is a paste type of food coloring that makes really vivid reds. I will find the link and send it to her - it's what I use. Enjoy your cookies, stay inside, and I hope you have a wonderful Boomy Day Feast!

OMD!!!!! I'll be right overs for those cookies guys! DO I SEE SPRINKLES???!!! Oh yeah!
And, I can help calm everyone down too....um, wait, Ma said I would do just the opposite...I thinks she's delusional, butts she's the one who can reach the food, so I guess she's boss.
Sorry guys, maybe next year!
Have a most FABulous Fourth, and try and have a quiet night. ♥
Kisses,
Ruby ♥

They do the same thing up here too. It was Canada's 150th birthday on July 1 and there were lots of fireworks. We hid out with music and air conditioning going to drown out the noise.

Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I
stumbleupon everyday. It will always be helpful to read through articles from other writers and use something from other websites.
