A Tea Party

Last week the children decided to give an afternoon Tea Party....minus the tea, they served homemade Lemonade instead. They all began to work together decorating, cooking, and cleaning up before their guest arrived.

This was their guest of honor for the party, Nonnie their 89 year old great grandmother. The children love to have her come over to hear tales of how life was when she was a young girl and family stories. For 89 she's still pretty spry lives alone, does her own shopping, and drives herself. She amazes us all :)

Along with our lemonade we had lemon pound cake, butter pound cake, bananas, strawberries, and whip cream...YUM!

(pictures not in order...oops!)

Before our dessert we had PB&J sandwiches, tuna sandwiches, and one of our favorites cucumber sandwiches, along with chips. Their was something for every ones taste :) The girls like to use times like this Lemonade party to help their little brothers out with their manners and how to be hospitable.

After everyone had a full tummy we sat around and talked for awhile, it was a nice peaceful afternoon spent with someone we all love very much!

What a sweet and fun time! That looks like so much fun. The food looked great too. Wished I lived closer because The Shelbys might would have crashed the party:)

That sounds like a fantastic party. I would have loved it! Mmmm...cucumber sandwiches. Josh would hate them, but not me. ;)
