Re: Dinner tables

My table sits six, and that is just enough for our immediate family. I also have a toddler table that sits two, so if we have people over to dinner I can shift two of the little ones down to that....

Re: I am 2... I guess we start over

Re: I am 2... I guess we start over

Is it facing the right way before you upload it? Maybe you could try resizing it first. I resize in paint.

Re: kids staying home alone overnight

We are not there yet... I am thinking around 15 or 16. It depends on the kids obviously. I'll have to see how mature and trustworthy I think they are when the time comes.
