i have a problem...

But it is a really *great* problem!

Today's project is setting the table
for Christmas Eve dinner.

My 5 children will be here
with their sweeties
and their babies.
Plus my brother, Grandma Danny and Aunt Boo.
Makes 21.

It is a challenge to arrange squeeze in enough plates and chairs
but we always manage.
This year we will need 4 highchairs
(for the triplets and Brogan).
It will be cozy but full of laughter.

...the beginning of the holiday table...

I've includes some *panoramic* views of my parlor...
I don't post them often because it is usually so cluttered
with all of my *business* stuff.
Enjoy....I know I am!

Blessings to you all, dear friends as you scurry about finishing up...
