Hi there! I’m Veronica and you can find me over at Nine A Plenty. I’m the really happy mom of nine amazing kids. We have a busy, crazy life, but it’s the best one around. I’m not the most clever mom, but every once-in-a-while, my frazzled little brain brings forth a grand idea that actually works for us! I’m always excited to hear about other’s ideas that make our home a happier and better place. So, I thought I’d share something that works for us! Who knows?! Maybe it will work for you too!
…plates?Yes! Plates! I love them!A couple years ago for Christmas, my mom bought each family a set of personalized photo plates. Such a GREAT gift idea, right?! I will admit that it was kind of creepy eating off of someone’s face at first, but it was short lived! We have had a lot of fun with our plates.
Then other times…we just have fun. Who says playing with your food is a bad thing?
You can imagine the fun we have. The ideas are endless!
I’m a firm believer that there is something powerful that happens in a home when you sit and eat together as a family. It strengthens our family in ways that are hard to explain to you. But just that one simple act makes a difference. In this busy world of ours, it’s not always easy or convenient. But, I promise that if you try, you will notice the difference. That’s one of the reasons I love our plates. They remind us that we’re a family, that we care about each other, and that we matter to one another. If you no longer have children at home, these make the best gift for families.

Have fun with your plates! Who knows? Maybe you’ll enjoy a new family tradition!
