These are two of my girls, Miss S on the right side and Miss F on the left. Both are growing up so quickly; they love each other and their sisters. It is such a blessing to spend time together. On Friday, we had a tea party at one daughter's house. Normally, our daughters have girlie tea parties for the granddaughters every month or two but life has a way of sneaking up on you and passing you by, so it has been several months since our last one. The little girls love these parties and it is a way to teach them how to be a hostess and incorporate fun food and crafts. The girls love the fun times and while the girls are playing, Grandpa is outside with the boys working with wood.
This is the craft that our daughter did-pinwheels made out of scrap booking paper. They were soft pastel colors are so adorable. I was never this creative when my girls were young.
The food was incredible too-yogurt parfaits with fresh raspberries and granola, an assortment of crackers, fresh fruit, ice tea/water and for dessert marshmallows dipped in dark chocolate with pink sugar sprinkled on top. It was a beautiful day outside so we were able to picnic under one of the trees. Unfortunately I left my camera inside so these are the only photos I've got.
Today I'm off to walk and then go to bible study. I'm hoping hubby and I can ride this afternoon before the rain starts.
Have a wonderful day, Noreen
