Tea for ......7

I have to confess, that I really don't like Mother's day. April and May are always so busy for me and this year it has been even busier than normal. Jon is great to help me out that day, but I still always end up making dinner (sometimes brunch too) for someone. This year Mother's day was just as busy for every one else in my family too, so we decided to celebrate Mother day a week late. So just us girls went to the Grand America Hotel for tea.

I forgot my camera so I stole these for my sister in law. This is my sister, my mom, me, and a sliver of Brianna in her hat.

Miss Carly and Miss Zoe.

Me and my girls.

Our whole group. We had such a lovely time. I can't wait to do it again.

Annie Oakley

Brianna had to do a report on a famous person then they had them dress up like that person and they do a 'Wax Museum' Where they have to hold still and we all walk around and look at them. Brianna chose Annie Oakley, of course.

She really was an interesting person and very fitting for our little cowgirl to pick her. Her outfit is mostly out of her closet, but we did make the skirt, she even sewed it herself.

Pretty close.

They let them rotate sitting and standing.

Some of the other kids. It was so cute! I've never seen that many kids standing that still for so long ever.

Dancing Girls

The girls had their dance recitals this past week.

They danced to Ease on Down the Road. As always she did great and it was very cute.

This time they danced on different nights.

Carly's Class danced to Somewhere Over the Rainbow. At the end of the dance they all ran across the stage with their little ribbon sticks flying. It was so sweet, I cried like a baby every time I saw it.

I can't believe my sweet girl is 9.

She has always been so happy and so beautiful.

She is so loved.

Our little princess.

Everyone is a friend to Brianna.

She is our nature girl. She loves animals, space and the stars. She is always asking questions.

She is so smart, she love school, and reading.

She is such a good big sister.

We just love our Brianna and are so proud of the amazing girl she has become.

The Party

This time of year is so busy for us, so busy that I didn't know when I was going to fit a party in for the girls, but They wanted a party so bad. So at the last minute we decided to have a tea party. Daddy was out of town for it but we decided that since it was a girl party it was okay.

I felt like the party gods smiled on me all week. I was able to find 2 teapots at the second hand store for $2 each. They were kind of ugly so I let the girls paint them.

I love how they turned out.

I'm glad the girls were happy to have their party together. This is Carly's friend and her cousins in their hats that we decorated.

Here are Brianna's friend's in their hats.

Blowing out the candles.

Round two.


Ladies who lunch.


My fancy lady.

We had such a fun time at our party.

My sweet baby turned 6 today.

She loved her Binky and still loves her blanky.

She has always been full of spunk and mischief.

She is so happy and always makes us smile.

She keeps me on my toes.

And is so sweet (when she wants to be)

I can't believe how grown up you have gotten. We love you so very much. We couldn't imagine life without you.

Happy Birthday baby!
