We enjoyed a wonderful few days with Kendall being home and our best friends’ son hung out with us for a few days as well.
When Kendall comes home we usually have at least one girls day out, but the time flew and we didn’t make it to any of our fun spots. Although there was a brief moment of craziness while we were out.
Some sweet friends of ours gave us several Hostas so, we decided a Yard day was in order. All of our children were home and, as the saying goes many hands make light work. We had many hands, but the work was not necessarily light. Lots of rocks, weeding and planting. Needless to say, Ibuprofen was making the rounds on Saturday night.
We also made time to try out a new egg coloring technique. Have you ever used Cool Whip to color eggs? We did and this is how our eggs turned out.
Sunday was a wonderful day spent with family and friends. My MIL and I shared the meal planning and it made for an easier meal prep.
This year we chose a buffet style meal just to keep the table from being overcrowded. It’s wonderful to have a large island to serve from.
My love for milk glass started years ago when I met Mr. Chaos’ grandparents. His grandmother served many meals on these beautiful dishes and I like to as well. These are her dishes that she passed down to me. Also, over the past few years, when I set our table for a special occasion, I have chosen cloth napkins. Because they can be a bit expensive, I try to find them after the holiday. I found these sweet ones at Pottery Barn.
Do you have any traditions you have kept from past generations?
Hope your week is a wonderful week!
