Pictures from my visit; Part Two
When I was in Florida, the girls gave me a little Birthday and Mother's Day tea party. My birthday was in February, and Mother's Day was still to be a week off, but to me this was the best of holidays, because I was with them, and so blessed by their beautiful party, gifts and precious moments; having these moments together, was the most treasured present of all, and some of my favorite memories.

It was a wonderful rainy day, and you can see the rain on the windows in the background; what a beautiful table and atmosphere.
The little boys were ready with tucked in shirts and hair combed back.
We always seem to love having orange slices with all of our tea parties.
These beautiful hydrangeas flourish in Elizabeth's yard.
Some lovely gifts.
Candles added the perfect light on a rainy afternoon.
Beautiful to look at and to eat, with orange filling, a glazed frosting and coconut flakes all over the outside. Click here for some of Elizabeth's posts on coconut.
"I'm ready for a little slice of that pretty cake now Mama".
"Have another orange before we start on the cake".
I love his little face scrunches.
... and more treasures still...
What beautiful smiles...
"Oh I wonder when we will cut into that cake".
Slices for everyone...
Little boys like tea parties as well as anyone.
What a beautiful day this was. I love to look and look at these pictures, and drink in the sweet feelings and memories of this day all over again. Thank you my sweet girls for giving me such precious moments. I hold those moments right here in my heart....
Part Three is still to come.
