It Was a Close Call

We finally decided to get a new dining table. The old one that Dan got in his bachelor days was getting small (3ft by 5ft) and it seemed like there was never enough room. One more kid and we'd really outgrow it (not that I'm announcing anything, grandmas!).

Well, it was supposed to be delivered on Nov. 18th and then they called to say it was going to be delayed a week. For the next week we were on pins and needles, hoping it would come in time for Thanksgiving. So last Tues. (2 days before Thanksgiving), the kids got to experience the novelty of eating breakfast and lunch on the floor. Hooray, it's a picnic!
The table was supposed to come at 1:00. Well, they kept calling and saying they were running behind schedule and I was beginning to think it wasn't going to get here. Finally, at 4:00pm, our new table arrived!
Our first meal on our new table:
And here is the table stretched out to its full length for Thanksgiving dinner. I think it groaned a little under all that food!
