Patriot Day 2011

Ever since September 11th was officially proclaimed to be Patriot Day, I've chosen to observe it by celebrating the love I have for my country. And by doing some All-American things.

I'm going to the flea market today. Gotta keep the economy strong!

The next town over is having a Patriot Parade. They'll also have a 1000 pound steel beam from the World Trade Center on display. I really want to see that.

We'll watch football. My Green Bay Packers won their season opener on Thursday, so I'll pretend to cheer on Mr. Old Glory's Chicago Bears today.

We'll do a little grilling. What's more American than grilling?!

Afterwards we'll enjoy some cake. I know, I know. That's a German chocolate cake. But I lost my recipe for Patriot Pie that I usually make!

And all day long, and into the night, we'll remember those that we lost on this day ten years ago.

Remembering is very important, but I am happy to see you are doing what we all should do...carry on the American traditions.

Never forget- great way to spend the day.
Oh, your home must be exciting on football days.
We are Bears fans- my husband's best friend and his family are Packer fans. We used to spend every New Year's together for the Bear/Packer game. We could at least come home when it got ugly- I don't know how you do it! LOL
Hugs- Tete
