Afternoon Tea with Friends

I enjoying getting ready for birthdays and making a big deal of them - putting up streamers, preparing the food, organising the games and waiting for everyone to arrive.  It makes me feel happy.  Although it all takes time and energy it is worth seeing the smile on my babies face and knowing that we are celebrating what is important to us - friends, family, fun, life and happiness.

To make the afternoon tea even more special for the girls the fine china came out . 
A lot of the china pieces have sentimental value as they're from grandparents and friends who are no longer with us.  It felt right to have them out in use for Gracie's birthday.

 Here is the little afternoon tea celebration we had for our little 8 year old, Grace Ellen.
 8!  Where, oh where did that time go?

With my baby girl.  
Yes, she will ALWAYS be my baby!

Pass the Parcel.
(Poor Paddy missed the party because he had basketball.  He wanted to play a small part in the party before he left so he organised the music for the game)

Food time!
We celebrated her day with some dolls, too.

Thank you Miss Gracie Ellen for bringing so much joy, love and happiness into our family.
You are the sunshine in our days.
