Thanksgiving Day 2011
http://missyscakesandaprons.blogspot.com/2011/03/his-eye-is-on-sparrow-baby-shower.html , the pine cones were bought last year, tablecloth and napkins bought on clearance from Target one year. The silver was Chris's grandmother's , I was so happy when the family offered it to us after she passed away. I have loved using them for special dinners. This was my first time to use my china. My uncle gave me his set since my aunt had passed away a few years ago. It was a wedding present to them. They got married the year my mom was pregnant with me. I love family "heirlooms", they are so special.
God provides the little things. I bought my goblets at Dollar Tree in PA many years ago. One got broke a couple of years ago and I have not been able to find any replacements, they are quite unusual. This left me with only five and on a whim I looked at the Dollar Tree again to see if they might have any (doubtful). I walked in and they had a whole display right in front of the door! What a blessing! I bought three to give myself a set of eight!
Chrystal's kids had to sit on a quilt on the floor for their lunch and Susan's teenager sat at the desk which is in the LR. I think the poor kid was very bored! LOL
