And That Is The Way It Is

Tomorrow morning, the great white hunter and I will welcome our grown children plus spouses and two grandchildren to our house for Christmas breakfast. We will have home fried potatoes, eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy and toast made from homemade bread that I just took out of the oven.DD is bringing a new dish for us to try. It is an annual affair.

I bought a new table cloth along with matching napkins and nice napkin rings. I ironed the napkins and the table cloth. I dug out the crystal candle sticks and the good dishes. (not china but not my everyday dishes).

So, when the kids reach in the cupboard to get a glass for their orange juice or whatever drink for breakfast, they will all grab one of the plastic glasses that I got at WalMart for 4 for $1. Never fails..........the only thing that has changed is it used to be the big plastic cups from one of the hamburger places that had Star Wars pictures. I threw those away when they moved out! Is there real glassware in said cupboard, YEP!

Hope everyone is enjoying time with their loved ones no matter what kind of container they are drinking out of! HOHOHO!

Oh, do I love that table cloth!! very elegant!!

My house is the same, every body has their favorites (cups, plates, towels, whatever) and that is what they want at Granny and Papa's's hard to undo traditions!

Such a pretty table you have the cloth with matching napkins.

Breakfast menu sounds so good....I hope scrambled eggs - frying eggs for that many people would be a chore.

Enjoy the family and the fellowship.

Lots of hugs from Oklahoma

That thing about the glasses is so true. In my house it's the ancient Tupperware glasses we got back in the 70's for use out in the backyard. Those suckers are indesructable. No fine crystal in this house. Have a wonderful Christmas breakfast with your family at your beautiful table.

I don't see a setting for me.

It's okay, I'll bring my own plate.

What a pretty table! Food sounds wonderful too.

As for the my house they grab the plastic ones that came out of the Crystal Wedding Oats. Don't know if you remember those...but they were plastic and came in the oatmeal.

What a lovely table you have set! Ours was our usual Christmas ivy table cloth with some fancier than everyday dishes, too. It was a brunch and my husband did the cooking. All our children were here, but not the new grandpuppy! I love it when we all get together. I hope you are having a lovely day with your family. Merry Christmas.
