I need a stress-free environment.

My daily calendar on my desk says this:
"Create a stress-free environment and make your home a desired haven. Tidy up, play soothing music, light scented candles, turn off the TV, and let voice mail take your calls."

Wow.  Doesn't that sound great?  I plan on creating that stress-free environment -- after I take a nap.  Haha!  I'm such a loser, but I really can't keep my eyes open.

We had a lot of fun yesterday celebrating Independence Day.  Here are a few pictures for ya!

Max is looking more and more like a little boy to me.  He's growing up too fast. =)

Zoe spent most of the day in her swimsuit, but she was only in the pool for 5 minutes.  No joke!  Goofy kid.

Zoe got to enjoy a sparkler last night. =)  I'm not sure what she thought of it.  She seemed pretty quiet.  Of course, it was past midnight!

These two pictures are ones that Paul took with his fancy camera. =)  He had a lot of fun taking shots of the fireworks.  In the first picture Lori, a friend of ours, wrote out "Fourth of July" using a sparkler!  The second one is of Paul's brother, Caleb, and one CRAZY firework!  He was brave.  Or nuts.  Maybe a little bit of both?  Just kidding.  But seriously. =D

This is the caramel frappe that I bought today HOPING it would wake me up.  Didn't even phase me.  I took my two sleeping babies to Walmart and my trip lasted five minutes because I was ready to GET OUT and go to bed!  Now I'm home.  I blogged.  The kids are still sleeping.  I'm going to crash myself.  Goodnight!
