      What a great run down of holiday snacks for kids, and very clever to offer 14 of them. :) It's a difficult choice, but I think I like the 14th one best.

      Oh wow, thx so much for the awesome prailnbtes. The sayings are both great but think I like the "middle" one for all outstanding fonts and colors but like the saying on the first one. My husband and I met at a laundra mat/dry cleaners by Davis Monthan Air Force Base. I lost my job awhile after meeting him there and told a gal I'd met there if she ever saw him to let him know I was looking for him. That fall she called me to let me know she'd seen him and gave him my message. We got together a few days later and made a date. We went out Oct. 18, 1968 and got married Nov. 30, 1968, he for Vietnam on Dec. 26, 1968. He was in the JOlly Greens helicopter rescue and recovery. 43 yrs. later, a lot of life lived and moves around the country and we're still very much in love so the saying about love really hit home. Thks so much.

      Just thinking that replacing the yoghurt raisins with blueberries would be a great idea for kids 4th of July snacks. :)
