Saving the world - one grandkid at a time.
We're having Thanksgiving at my house this year. We have the most square footage, so we got volunteered. I'm looking forward to having Ben's family over. I've always wanted to be the 'get-together house.' My goal is for my house to be my kids' friends' favorite hang out. It's a lofty goal, I know, but I'm going to try. I've already started - we frequently have Gillie's best friend from school and her mom over. I love that!
So in preparation for the big day, I wanted to try my hand at decorating a table. I found out we're renting tables, so this will end up mostly being for show somewhere in the room, but it was so fun to make. I took some old Gatorade and Folgers cans, painted them gold and distressed them, tied some yarn around the tops and cut off some branches from our tree out front. Now our house smells like pine. l o v e t h a t !!! I put some candles around it and voila! On the wall is a craft I did over the summer where I decoupaged some photoshopped pictures of us onto painted wood plagues. Neat, right?
man o man. I have a ton more to write about, but I'm pooped and lunch ain't gonna fix itself! More later.
