Today was our annual Valentine's Tea Party!
Abby was thrilled to have her friends playing in her
Dane, Elizabeth, Shelby, Brielle and Emma
The spread- 2 delicious homemade treats that I can't recall, handmade chocolates and caramels, raspberries, grapes, fruit salad, apple slices, crusts off (of course) pb&j and turkey/cheese sandwiches, chocolate dipped strawberries and tea!
Shelby picked out the adorable plush Valentine emoji's to give to her guests.

Silly girls! Abby was thrilled to have her friends playing in her room.
Abby was so lady like and careful having tea on china!
She loved her peppermint tea with one lump of sugar and cream.
See the phone...Noma, Angela, was enjoying the party via FaceTime!
Emma had fun spinning in the egg chair!
Abby enjoyed coloring.

The party was a huge success! The girls started by doing crafts, then played upstairs in the girls rooms for a while, then photos with the selfie stick. Next was the highly anticipated tea time! I reminded the girls to act lady like and place their napkins into their laps. Every year they get bigger and bigger and more grown up! This year I didn't have anyone blowing out the candles :) They sipped tea with sugar cubes and cream. They are delicious treats and chatted. The ladies and I also had some wonderful time to sit and visit. Suci and Jen stayed the whole time. Rachel and Liisa also came by to pick up their kiddos and chatted a while. Such a fun day!
