Laurie-I am going to ignore that pig stuff :) I just finished reading your post from yesterday. Thank you so much for sharing it! Sometimes as I read my heart ached and wanted to take that scared little girl in my arms for a hug. But then I think...all of that came together to make you the wonderful and compassionate friend, wife, mother, and grandmother you are today. Hope you and and "the hogs" have a good long weekend :0)

Like your table setting! i know nothing about football, but I think you are not suppose to say you are a Razorback fan on this side of the river! :-D
Enjoy and have a safe holiday weekend.

A big Pig Sooiee and Happy Labor Day to you Laurie. Ordered ESPN Game Plan for the weekend so we can watch the game tomorrow night. Have some other Razorbacks coming over for a Watch Party. Should be fun.

Hi, this is my first visit here. I saw Cindy's post about your wonderful Christmas decor and floating table and HAD to come over and say hi. I love Christmas too, and even co-authored a book about it. Nice to meet you.

Sarah said...

Great table, Laurie, but I'll refrain from cheering on the Razorbacks. You know I'm a Longhorn. LOL
Love the thank you photo. Did you take those photos? I used to do similar things with my students. Such fun to make the alphabet with body moves.
Have a terrific holiday weekend. ~ Sarah

Laurie, What a fabulous table, for any US holiday celebration!!
Even if Arkansas loses, it will still be la fĂȘte chez vous!! (One of the nice things about living in France is that we don't have football ... )Bon weekend!

And lucky me! I got to eat off that
festive table-but it was laden with Brunch food! Banana cake with caramel frosting, hot biscuits and gravy, ham, venison sausage, fruit platter, mimosas, apple fritters, jellies, potatoes, creme brule casserole, egg casserole with sausage-it was wonderful, Thanks, Laurie for all your wonderful hospitality at your Labor Day brunch. She not only can decorate but can cook as well!S and T
