The Family Table

Lori at Glass Half Full is having a photo tag this weekend.  (Hat tip to Steph at Adventures in Babywearing, by the way.)

So this is our family table.  We have every meal at this table.  Family dinner was a priority in both my husband’s and my homes growing up, so it was just understood that we would share dinner together at the table every evening.  From the first week of our marriage and ever since, going on 12 years now, we have sat down together for dinner at this table. 

This dinette set was a wedding gift from my grandfather.  It has seen some wear and tear, not the least of which was the nail polish fiasco that involved my daughter, C, when she was 2 years old.  That was the same year she cut her own hair.  But that’s a story for another time.  Let’s just say, that was a pretty tough year where that child is concerned.  But I digress.

So without further prattle ado, I give you, our family table…
