I'd love to be able to post a picture of my table, set well ahead of the big meal with pretty plates and sparkling glassware, but that's not how it happens here.
Even though it's a feast day, I still have lots of little bodies who want to eat their regular meals. At the table on their regular old plastic dishes, no less. And as much as I want to just throw them some crackers until dinner and call it good, the reality is that I'll find myself making ham sandwiches at noon, just like every other day.
Instead of a pretty table, I'm posting a picture of how it really goes down in this house and I'm coming clean about the half eaten apple crisp sitting on my stove. Rob and I cannot help ourselves - we are powerless when it comes to crisp. Happily, I made two so I could live up to the family motto of "go big or go home."
I pray that your tables are just as full as ours and that they are surrounded by the smiling faces of the people you love. Happy Thanksgiving from the whole HomeFront gang!
