Decorations are up!


  

Ugh, I hate my camera.  It does ok with the daytime pictures, but at night...ah, well.  As you can see, the house is all decked out in her patriotic best, complete with red, white, & blue lights and paper lanterns with LED lights, and we're all ready for the fire department.  We bought about $20 worth of more fireworks (and if I had $200, we'd ave spent that too), the food is ready to go, and my fingers are itchin' to strike a match.

We're working on our fireworks playlist now.  We have all the military marches and your usual patriotic stuff like "God Bless America," "Coming to America," the National Anthem, "Only in America," etc., as well as some rockin songs that aren't necessarily specific to the 4th of July but do go well with blowing things up, like AC/DC's "TNT" and "Ride of the Valkyries."  Also "R.O.C.K. in the USA and "Pink Houses," etc.  Altogether we have 33 songs on deck.

NOT ENOUGH, I SAY!!

Anyone have any other ideas for some good fireworks music?  Patriotic is preferred, of course, but "Light my Fire" and "Dynamite"-esque songs are also acceptable.

  1. I'll think on the fireworks music question, but I've gotta say I love your lights for the occasion!
