Tea Time with My Girls

Life brings simple pleasures to us every day. It is up to us to make them wonderful memories. ~ Cathy Allen

Hello my lovely friends! While my family was home we enjoyed many different activities and made some wonderful memories. One of them was a tea party with my daughter in law and my little granddaughter. 

We didn't have a lot of time and we had to scoot the guys out the door so we could enjoy this special time together.

Mommy is pouring the tea while the little lady looks on and Nanny takes the picture.

The table was set with lace and the tiered stand held chicken rollups and peanut butter and jam sandwiches. Nanny tried to serve something that she knew Jenna-Lynn would like; chocolate tarts and strawberry wafers were the sweets.

My Skye McGhie Cream Lace teapot held David's Tea Kombucha Tea, which is a mixture of oolong tea, mango, pineapple, kombucha powder, and safflower petals. I normally don't care for fruity teas but this one was delicious! Jenna-Lynn had three full cups of tea with honey and milk of course!

We sipped tea from three different teacups and saucers. Originally I had set out my matching Masons Vista teacups for my granddaughter and me. 

I told her the story about how they came to be mine but she wanted a "big girl cup" like Mommy and me. So the demi tasse was put back in the cabinet and she chose the Burleigh Calico Red teacup instead. This little lady knows what she wants.

She is wearing her new dress that her daddy bought her the day before and the necklace he brought back for her from his trip to Mexico.

Johnson Bros. Old Britain Castles was Carina's teacup.

And I sipped from my Mason's Vista teacup.

Jenna-Lynn loved the parasol and the tiny silver spoons. But having had three cups of tea I would say she rather enjoyed the tea too.

She sniffed the last of my roses. I thought my roses were done and they came back just long enough for a bouquet for our little tea time.

Boomer was bound he was going to have tea as well so he jumped up on Carina's lap. He really is a character! It's hard to say "No" to that face.

It was a lovely little tea time with my beautiful girls. And Boomer too!

My pretty girls! 

It was good to the last drop.

Today I'd like to sit and sip,
Forget about the world a bit,
Ignore the things I have to do,
And just enjoy a cup or two. - Unknown

I'm so glad you could drop by for a visit. Enjoy your weekend and be sure to capture all those magical moments before they are gone.
