Wednesday Night table...



With a recent post about our table, my friend, Mayhem requested a better picture of the table being used. Well there is no night better to see the magic of this table than a Wednesday night. It's amazing to me how our Wednesday spaghetti dinners evolve over time. Last night dinner was in 3 rounds. The smaller kids (12 last night) ate first and ran outside to play while it was still light out. The teens (6) at next and then went off to gossip and play music. And finally, the adults (12) sat down. There were two small babies that got past around, and a couple of stragglers who came in late for a quick bite.

Not every night is like this. Some nights only a small handful of people show up, and it's more of a quiet sit down dinner. Those nights are just as fun in a different way... a time to catch up with old friends and have some good conversations. But the kids definitely love the nights like last night. The wild chaos of it all, never knowing who will walk through the door next. I love Wednesday nights!
