First Annual Back to School Feast!

The DeMotte family celebrated it's first annual Back to School Feast on Tuesday. It was SO fun! (For those of you who know of Nie Nie, this will be familiar to you. Not gonna lie, I pretty much copied everything she did.) It was great fun, and sure to be a long-standing tradition for years to come.

The theme for this year was chosen by my husband:


*PRESS FORWARD*


The Menu

caprese on a stick
herbed roast chicken
broccoli salad
cheesy scalloped potatoes
slush punch
rainbow sherbet


I made the kids wait upstairs until everything was ready, and when it was, they stampeded down to their very own crowns, fancy china and glasses (all from DI), decor, and glorious food. We discussed the year's theme and how to make friends. When dinner was over, Mike gave the kids their school blessings.
All in all, it was an incredibly memorable and fulfilling night. I'm so grateful that this new phase in life is upon us. Grateful for change and growth and improvement.
