Tom Sawyer loves using the family china. He studied different place setting templates on an Internet wedding site and then set the table. He did it all by himself. He was concerned that we did not have any ice cream dishes or oyster forks (nevermind that we were not having and never have had oysters). LOL
The final menu was (all homemade except the pizza and rolls) ~
- pot roast
- grain-free pizza
- mashed potatoes
- orange-glazed cooked carrots from our garden
- baked beans
- grain-free rolls
We also wrote what we were thankful for in our Thankful book. Ever since we got married, we have pulled this book out each Thanksgiving and everyone in attendance who was capable of writing has added to it. I enjoy reading what has been said over the years. Some are sweet ~ like being thankful for siblings written in child scrawl and others are funny, like being thankful for Legos.
Lastly, we finally got a good picture of the kids. I gave up on having the dogs in the photo. It is good enough. Now, I just have to choose which photo and order it as a Christmas card. Which do you like best?
