It was a lovely night.
Only thing amiss was Mini-Me being away this year.
Since she had fun watching Disneyland's aerial fire display, we'll excuse her this once.

Without Mini-Me, Mr LKP & I celebrated with his parents for a while.
Then we ventured down the block to my SIL's house for some pyro-technics of our own. 
Boy, was it fun!
So grateful for my freedoms.  So grateful for my country.  So grateful for the veterans that have framed my life:
  • My Great-Grandpa Grow (WWI)
  • My Grandpa-in-Law (post WWII)
  • My Grandpa Grow (Korean War)
  • My Father-in-Law (Vietnam)
  • My Brother-in-Law (Operation: Desert Storm)
  • My Husband (Operation: Iraqi Freedom)
Such phenomenal men.
Their lives are testimony to me & all other Americans that freedom truly is not free.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."  
-John 15:13
