Remember Remember Remember

For the past couple of years I have come up with a Family theme or motto for the year. This year I decided to introduce our theme with a nice family dinner. Our theme is-

REMEMBER (who you are)
REMEMBER (where you are going)
REMEMBER (you must choose)

This is our before pic.

Abby and Jaren loved helping me set the table and asked lots of questions about the china my parents gave me when I was 16. I put a copy of our theme on the table. I hope to have it put on a board and hang it on our wall close to the front door so they can be reminded of it each time they leave the house. I will probably have it hanging in each bathroom as well.

Can you say YUMM! This was an awesome appetizer and I don't even have a name for it but it was soooo good.

For dinner I made italian chicken, frech cut green beans and garlic buns. We also had ceasar salad, you can see it in the next pic. It was a big hit and everyone loved it.

My family is sitting here patiently waiting for me to take a quick pic before digging in and talking about our theme.

For dessert I made this mixed berry trifle and it is soooo rich and yummy. I guess I need to buy a real trifle dish now that I have exposed my children to it. Taylor had two bowls and I caught the other kids sneaking into the fridge later that night trying to steal another taste. Mmmm Mmmm good!
As of this morning we only have a small container left over and I am sure it will be gone before the day is over.

What a great idea. We just might have to make that a tradition in our house too!

I love that idea! Could you come to my house and present it to us? Of course you would have to make dinner too!
