Christmas Tea Party

Hello Friends~I'm wondering how many folks are visiting blog friends or if the majority of you are out preparing for Christmas? I did some last minute shopping this morning and got the gifts wrapped and under the tree for someone special. It feels good to have at least a few presents taken care of; the rest are needing to be wrapped and sitting in their stockings so hubby and I can make sure that no one is forgotten. We had our Girlie Tea Party yesterday and it was such fun. Daughter Kim did a wonderful job hosting it; the table looked so beautiful and the scones, muffins and cake were yummy. The little girls were dressed up, looking very festive. I prepared the crafts and think that it went well; each girl took home two new ornaments.

Kim set the table with linens, china and candles-so elegant and training the girls early.
The family room decorated perfectly.

Their second ornament; a bit more challenging but a memory to be sure!

Our newest grand, Little Man as he is affectionately called. He slept through almost the entire party. Love this little guy! Next year, he'll probably be hanging with Papa and the boys. I hope you have a lovely weekend. Remember Jesus is the reason for the season.
Joy,  Noreen


  1. What a very sweet time for all! Our human brother and family will be here soon - and then the fun begins with all the grands and their moms and dads and the noise and the fun and the laughter - hope you all have a Christmas filled with love and joy.

    Merry Christmas from all of us.

  2. Noreen- What a beautiful family and I love those sweet little girls all lined up at the table. Aren't they just precious. I am glad they had fun and everything looks just beautiful. What a sweet Little Man! xo Diana

  3. A sweet time for everyone...I love tea parties with girls..young and old alike :) Christmas blessings sent your way.

  4. Your girls and grandchildren are all just beautiful, Noreen, like you. I know all of you are already having a wonderful time together. The pictures are so precious. Just want to cuddle "Little Man".

  5. What a special tea party. You are so blessed to have your family so close. Wishing you and hubby a very Merry Christmas.

  6. Such wonderful family photos! The Little Man is adorable :D

  7. Well that looks like fun. I suppose Hunter being a boy was with they guys. You have a beautiful family. Merry Christmas to you!

  8. Oh Noreen I think this is such a wonderful idea! I love it. The girls are look soo darling, and I love the pic of you with your daughters. How blessed you are to have them so close to you.

    As it turns out Sam is sick with an ear infection and a mild case of rsv so Melody and her family are not coming after all. Well, not coming now. They are Lord willing coming on the 30th now and staying through the 6th. I could have just cried. Not sure now if we can pull off getting ALL getting together or not. Might be missing one or two...sigh. I guess it is what it is. Poor little Sam! And Mel is so concerned for her baby. It is really the first ear infection or time of running a fever and really being sick at all. She is convinced it is because she weaned him, haha, and she may be right. Anyway, I'd appreciate a prayer or two if you get the chance. Hope you all continue to enjoy this season! HUGS

  9. What a fun and special time. This will be a wonderful memory for all the little girls. I love the pics with all of them together.

  10. Dear Noreen,
    What a wonderful, happy family you have; yes, truly a blessing. You must be so proud of your two daughters, as well as their beautiful brood. I am in awe...
    We are also busy with all the Christmas preparations. Tree up, twinkling and laden with gift. I hope that Santa is good to you too. Do have a joyous Christmas with your loved ones. Thank you for all your love this year. You are a beautiful friend.
