Be sure to get your napkins.  the larger, red one is to put in your lap, so your boxed lunch won’t get your clothes messed up.  The smaller white one is to dab your mouth and fingers.

RING IN THE NEW YEAR TABLESCAPE

Although we didn’t stay awake to ring in 2013 at midnight, we did ring it in with our New Year’s Day dinner with all those good luck foods.

I am linking to Cuisine Kathleen for Let’s Dish Wednesdays and Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.  2013 just sounds weird!  I don’t know how long it will take me to get used to this change.  Wishing all of you blessings in the new year.  Please continue to pray for our grandson, Cooper.  Thank you. laurie

Whew, that was a lot of tablescaping!
Finally, I’d like to share one of my Christmas photos.  We have about 30 family members for Christmas Eve.  One of our favorite traditions is the Christmas pageant performed by all of the young cousins.  This picture was taken at the end of the pageant, when the children sing Happy Birthday to Jesus.

I also want to share that we had snow in Arkansas on Christmas Day!  I know some of you are asking what is all the excitement about.  We seldom get snow in Arkansas, and never on Christmas Day (The last time was 100 years ago! No, that was not in my lifetime.), so give me a break while I celebrate our little Christmas Day snow.

I am linking to Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.  I don’t know about all of you, but all holiday celebrations have me wondering what day of the week it is for days after the holiday.  If I’m not too late for it, I’ll also link to Cuisine Kathleen for Let’s Dish Wednesday.  Thank you for stopping by to review my year of tablescapes.  laurie
