Tea Party

The Tea Party

I had a little tea party
This afternoon at three.
'Twas very small-
Three guest in all-
Just I, myself and me.

Myself ate all the sandwiches,
While I drank up the tea;
'Twas also I who ate the pie
And passed the cake to me.

~~Jessica Nelson North


This has been one of my favorite poems.  Daughter #2 learned it in kindergarten! {That has been 13 years ago!}  I get a chuckle out of it every time I hear it!  Our youngest daughter learned it just shortly before Christmas.  I don't know if I like it so much because "I don't have to share" in this tea party, or what!

Anyway, one of our daughters received a tea set for Christmas.  We have had "mini" sets and the plastic Disney Princess set.  But this is a REAL tea set--for children!  Oh, we have had many tea parties, with "low calorie" invisible tea and Duplo blocks for snacks.  Taking tea with the finest of teddy bears, stuffed rabbits, and Elmo has been a real joy!  (Do I have a witness out there?!!)  Our whole family, yes, Dad and boys included, have had the pleasure of these parties!

Yesterday the girls had set up a tea party.  Husband was helping one of the scholars with algebra, so I pulled Daughter #2 away from her studies to "take tea".  Yes, to a little shop in "Paris"!   We had menus... 



  ...snacks...


...and of course tea!




As we were having our tea it occurred to us that we were in "Paris" without hats!  So Daughter #2 took care of that for us...

                                                                                 
"me"?
"myself"?

and "I"?

It works!  "Paris" with tea, snacks and hats!  Who could ask for more?

We even have the "pinkie" thing down to a "T"!
{no pun intended!}


So, where do you take tea? :-)

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.



Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!







Graduation 2017 Post

Finally, here are pictures from Son #6 and Daughter #5's graduation.  I finally figured out what I was doing wrong downloading pictures!!








They Said "I Do" and Here We Grow Again!!

"I do!"  Lovely words.  Son #4 and Bride were married on the 31st of March.  After weeks of planning they are finally married and home from their honeymoon!  (pictures to follow soon)   We are pleased to have a new daughter in the family!

Speaking of new...yes, a new babe is growing...Daughter #1 and Son-in-love #1 are expecting their second child in the fall!  Grandson E told us!  At first we just looked at him, dead silence in the room, and looked at his momma...and she was smiling!  YAY!  Our "grand" total will be 11 come fall!!!!!!

Soon we will meet Granddaughter E...!  Eight weeks until her due date...but will probably meet her in the next few weeks!  Everyday in the womb is a day of victory!

That's all for now!  I have had to update this about 3 times!  It has been in my "save" for several weeks!  As soon as I get a few minutes of free time I will be back!
