Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Today I had a tea party for some little girls from my moms-at-home group. Nine were invited, but four were out of town this week. I made twirling skirts with flowery crowns for each of them, so they could "dress up" for the party. Here are some scenes from the gathering.

I served fresh strawberry "ice cream", made with coconut milk. As you can see, this little sweetie thought it was delicious! We also had peach iced-tea, sweetened with organic apple juice. Yum!

The girls each picked out a skirt to wear for the tea party. I think they felt mighty fancy!

These children are a complete delight! I expect to dream up other special days for them in the near future. A big song of praise goes to their mothers who enjoy being at-home moms and take their 24 hour a day jobs very seriously. I couldn't ask for a better bunch!
