Girls and Tea Parties...

Guess I am still a little girl at heart...I love tea parties! I enjoy collecting teapots...I have one that was my Mamaw Kennedy's that I will always treasure! I recently was given a teacup and saucer set that was Danny's Grandmothers. My 6 year old "Cassie" has inherited my love of tea parties...It is not uncommon for us to have a tea party in the middle of the afternoon on any given day. She loves planning the menu and usually Cade is invited to come, too! She and I have special memories of the day we had the priviledge of taking tea at the American Girl's Tea House in Chicago...The food was beautiful and each American doll even had a place to sit at the table! On her fourth birthday, we had a "girl's day out" to a tea house with her good friend(and mine,too). On her fifth birthday, we had a real tea party for all of her girlfriends. Everyone came dressed in tea party finery...They looked adorable! The menu included butterfly and flower shaped sandwhiches, fruit kabobs, fancy crackers with cheese, soft party mints, cookies, and "pink" tea! We had so much fun! Our ladies from church have gone to different tea houses. We once had a very fancy, catered tea party by candlelight...all the ladies wore hats! I would love to go to a "high tea" in London! Would anyone like to go with me? (ISN'T IT FUN TO BE A GIRL?)
