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.
The girls with their snowflake ornaments. So precious.
Their second ornament; a bit more challenging but a memory to be sure!
Carrie is on the left and Kim on the right; such incredible blessings-my two girls!
Carrie and her girls; the boys were with Papa.
Kim and her girls.
The girls and I; nothing richer in life than to be so close to your daughters.
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.
I am a daughter of the King, saved by grace for 37 yrs. I am married to my best friend and beloved for 38 years. I was born and lived most of my life in Northern Calif. until moving to Colorado. We homeschooled our girls for years and I love encouraging my daughters and others in their homeschooling. Hubby and I are blessed to have two incredible daughters and sons-in-law and 11 grandkids. I love spending time with my family & our dog Hunter, friends, plus quilting whenever I can.
