I can check one off of My "Before I turn 50" list.
I took Anita's advice and used my good china for Tanner's birthday dinner on Sunday. We had shredded roast beef with all of Tanner's favorite side dishes. I served jello in my good china bowls along with a smashing table setting good enough to to feed a king and topped it off with with kool-aid served in wine glasses. I used all of my good serving bowls and the kids found it to be a very special evening. Great idea. I will now use my China for every special occasion: birthdays, first day of school, losing a tooth, last day of school, etc. Sure makes for great memories! I had fun!
Thanks for the idea Anita!!!
