breakfast is served

About a week ago, Abbott started making breakfast for the family. The presentation is always perfect. Some kids have lemonade stands; Abbott wants to convert our home into a breakfast restaurant.

Sign below (that stayed taped to the railing of our deck for days) reads: "Welcome to Abbott and Cal restaurant. From: breakfast to: school"


This is the 'front desk':
Blue box is for money; paper is to sign in and indicate the frequency with which you plan to visit the restaurant.


This morning, I discovered that today breakfast was a scavenger hunt. I had to follow six clues to find everyone's breakfast.

If I showed this post to my kids I would probably soon have a similar set up in this house! What a creative thing to do!

Love those signs! "Never take this off!" You've got an entrepreneur in the making!

When I was younger, I turned my parents' home into a bed and breakfast.

I think he's got something going on there. Folks always love breakfast. Sounds like a moneymaker to me. Love it!

I'm a little behind on my blog reading this week, and I don't comment here much (though your blog is one of my favourites) but I just had to say that this is too precious. And I love the "Never take this off!" on the smoothie sign.

I hope Abbott makes breakfast sometime this week and !!!! I love the L in your bookmark name. at the top of the page. I've no idea what that's called. Congrats on another new change.
