old and new


This is James and Daniel in deep thought about taking the legs off of the *big brown eating table*
We've had it for almost 18 years. It was old when we got it.......and if IT could talk, I would finish the sentences.  I DO know the stores it would tell!  Six kids, holidays, friends, missionaries, visiting preachers, Sunday afternoon dinner, pizza, *the works*, cars, ponies, school books, birthdays........

The top of it hung onto the furry stuff on the backside of plastic table-cloths.  Nice?  Not.
Well, the new one is all slick and that won't happen again.


This is the new one.........


We will make good memories on it, too.



Days where my husband gives BOTH of my Snoopy coffee cups to somebody else.


birthdays, holidays, pizza
games, coloring, toys
family
friends

Kristi, I'll use table cloths even if I have a nice table and have nothing to HIDE! The table was given to us!

The table was GIVEN to you? How awesome is that? I'm so very happy for you; it looks lovely.

The chairs are killin me......I would never get upholstered chairs....and now I have six. I was hoping to recover them with six different fabrics.....but the people that put these chairs together weren't playing.

Michele you sounded just like Mom, always a tablecloth on not matter what....it is decorative to have a nice tablecloth on, does the one I gave you fit it,or do you not like the plastic kind? Kristi

Mrs. Mobunny said...

Yep. I'll put table cloths on a nice or not so nice table.
