Tea Time

Hello friends, This week has been jam packed with lots of fun! As you know our daughters have tea parties for their daughters every month or so. Wednesday was the end of summer party and it was such a fun afternoon. Carrie had decided to have flowers and vases for the girls to make arrangements with. It was so fun to see 8 girls make totally different arrangements; showed their individual personalities. Some of them even went out to the flower bed in the back yard to pick more flowers.

We also had wonderful treats-iced tea or water, strawberries-chocolate covered and plain, grapes, cantaloupe as well as lemon-almond squares.  When they were all done with the flowers, the girls quickly ran off to play.  Seven of them were all coming to our house for their last summer sleepover, so I'm sure they were talking about what we'd be doing.  We always let them choose what's for dinner and so we had hot dogs on buns, fruit salad and Izzy drinks.  For dessert we bbq'd marshmallows and had S'mores.  After we came back inside we all sat and watched the Olympics.
Yesterday  we had a big breakfast-again their choice-pancakes, bacon and orange juice.
Around 10:30 we met the mom's and other kiddos at the pool; water play and then lunch.
In the afternoon a neighbor and fellow quilter came to see the projects I made in Sister's and share what she's been up to.
Today I have my neighborhood quilt group here and then not sure what I'll be doing after that.
I hope you've had a great week and have a fun weekend.


  1. What a busy week! Looks like fun. Love all the different arrangements. Being the mom of boys, this sure is so much different than what I have here! LOL- we shoot baskets or play video games when all the guys are around. The fridge is bare when they are finished, too. Enjoy your weekend.

  2. Noreen, Lots of girl fun. Oh how I miss that. The little ladies did a fabulous job with their bouquets. Just beautiful lined up in the center of the table too. I wish them all a good year in school. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
