Watch Out Sandra Lee!!

Here's the fruits of watching the Food Network! My boys know what a "table-scape" is all thanks to Sandra Lee of Semi-Homemade. These are very elegant name place setting cards. Emery, Asa and Jack all ran to the office and snatched some sticky notes and Emery wrote the names and Asa and Jack decorated them with stickers. All this was a surprise by the boys for Kurt and me. They were so excited with Kurt's return from California that they wanted to do something special. This was so sweet. Jack, being three, is just now learning to read and his writing is limited to some specific letters - one of which being "E". So, he asks me to write his name J-a-c-k and then he takes the paper and finishes it off with the letter "E" on the end - hence, Jack-E.  All his figuring out and he is so proud! 

I know y'all are wanting to know what the menu was that is displayed on the table?? It was sliced chicken breast, glazed sweet potatoes, rice, broccoli, homemade wheat bread and tomato wasabi sauce. Sandra Lee would be proud... maybe not as "semi" as she demonstrates though!
