My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..
Today is Sunday ...The week has ended or it is beginning whatever you believe.
We are starting a "family " tradition with my daughter Pj and her two sons. "Sunday Dinner at Gramma & Papa's". We are certainly not the "Walton's" nor a Norman Rockwell depiction of the family picture... There will be silliness. and the usual chaos .
Whats for dinner? This Sunday.. In my plan.. The Walton picture floats back to my mind. I will make a Turkey Casserole with fresh vegetables and fruit. Pj will bring dessert and the boys part will be to clear the table and play nicely.. Papa Clay will load the dishwasher. .Once we gather at the table, remind the boys of their table manners and to put their napkins in their laps..our dinner conversation will turn to a joke that one of the boys found funny...what we did this week at school, sharing a story or two and plans for Peyton's 12th Birthday next Saturday (Bowling) with his friends. Sounds nice? Okay go back and read.. "In my Plan...because things never seem to go as planned do they? But this is what we try....
Papa Clay and I have missed so many of those celebrations living so far away, until now.We hope to create memories like my children have of Sunday dinners at their grandparents. Perhaps we can gather around the table after its cleared and play a game... watch a family movie or they boys may decide sledding down the hill to be still a possibility. The hopes to have them "unplug" for awhile from TV..their DSI's . A Wii game or the Xbox ( what are those things anyways?)
Do you get the opportunity to make memories with your Grands? We hope you do... and that you enjoy what time you have together.. Now just what are we having for dessert?
Please make it a good day full of laughter and don't forget to excuse yourself before you leave the table.
