Girls Valentine Tea

Come, let us have some Tea and continue to talk about happy things. Chaim Potok

We thank You, Lord, for blessings 
You give us on our way;
May we for these be grateful, 
And praise You every day...

"Spread Love everywhere you go; First of all in your own house...let no one come to you without leaving better and happier."
..Mother Teresa

Saturday afternoon I gave my girls their annual Valentine Tea. It's my gift to them. I wasn't feeling too well but nothing was going to take away the time I was going to have with them.. the days go by so swiftly and they all grow up and have their own lives to live. I cherish every moment. We all had a great time together.

"There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea."
Henry James

I used these cupcake papers that I found at Michael's a few years ago.  They are so pretty I don't want to use them, but thought this was a prefect time and occasion, (my girls deserve the best).
