The Makings of a Waffle House Christmas

Hello family that is addicted to Waffle House! That’s most of us right there. My Mom has a neighbor who is a photographer and he took a family shot and did some candid Waffle House pictures for us. He was wonderful. If you’re in the Atlanta area and need a good photographer check Gibbs Frazeur out.

This was the sight at our family Christmas party a few days before Christmas. The Waffle House crashed our party!

This great WH team served all 22 of us our Christmas dinner. Certainly a memory we’ll have forever. I grew up going to the Waffle House and most all my friends remember coming along. We would end up skating in the parking lot and have our own booth and made up games to kill time while Mom and Dad had their coffee. We dropped more quarters into the juke box than they ever cared for. I’m pretty sure the WH staff hated to hear “Special Lady at the Waffle House” just one more time. One time I pretended to be blind and read the waffle house menu with my finger. How weird is that? Another weird fact: My Mom somehow got a Waffle House waitress uniform and wore it to a church Christmas party. We were still sort of new at the church so some people weren’t sure if she was for real or not. She had a big wad of gum in her mouth and long dangly earrings and told everyone she had just gotten off work. OH.MY.Gosh. This is my family.

That’s my sweet Mom (with umbrella) and my nephew getting their food. My Mom is so cool you guys. She’s pushing 80 and can still rock a party like nobody I know.

We all got a grand slam breakfast and had chicken or steak with it.

And even though we’re eating on paper plates and greasy Waffle House food we are most definitely still eating on nice linens. Thank you Mom for always making it nice for us.

The only thing we lacked was some good ole Waffle House music and so I shall provide it here…..

Happy New Year friends! Go have some hash browns scattered, covered and smothered.

  1. Haha, your mom is hilarious and your family is awesome! And such a big group! Can you believe I’ve never been to a Waffle House? I just did a quick search and the nearest one to San Diego is 280 miles away in Arizona! Boo! I’ll definitely have to add “eat at a Waffle House” to my bucket list. 😉

    • What?! Seriously? I had no clue this was like a Southern chain thing. Oh yes you just gotta add it to your bucket list. Bring along a Tums with you. HA! Happy New Year!!!
