To Grandfather's House We Go

Grandmother established this table as the "children's table" for Thanksgiving dinners. From very tiny children, this was where the cousins ate for Thankgiving dinner. The adults and other guests sat at another table nearby. But our group has grown smaller due to illnes, death, and distance. Thanksgiving day marked the date; yesterday it was five years since Grandmother passed away. For the past several years we have chosen to all crowd in and sit around the "children's table". Grandfather had it set so nicely and although only a portion of the food fit on the table, we adapted and a feast was enjoyed by all! It was a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Growing up, sitting with my cousins at the kids table was so much fun, that we didn't want to graduate up to the adult table! Even my mom has taken to sitting at the kid's table!
