Happy Belated

I wanted to wish a Happy Father's Day to our Dad first of all. We love you,
we're so thankful God spared you to us recently! We hope you know how
much we appreciate you and that we try not to take you for granted.
And a belated Happy Father's Day to dads around. I hope you
know the love of your family always. God bless and guide all of you.

4th Annual Little Girls' Tea Party

That's right. It's that time of year again. Last Saturday was our tea party.
It expanded this year so the Throwers were kind to let us the Family Vision
Library's big green room for our event. This year it was a lot of work,
but worth it. The Burneys were so kind to help us with cleanup afterward
when we were so tired and sore-footed. We sure did miss the ladies and
girls who couldn't make it. It was so good to have the Coates ladies again!
They came to our first one in 2010, and haven't been able to come since,
so we were excited to have them again. Our devotional was Being a True Giver.

Handmade namecards for the girls
The flower photos in the little frames were pictures Annah has taken.
Annah made the banner and we put frames our previous tea party group pictures.
We're planning to add a new group picture every year to our collection.

Mom made a luscious punch of rasberry lemonade and white soda.

Annah made this ribbon.

We finally got to meet Elise Noel Wilson, my best friend Sarah's newest baby!

Megan and Adalynn
The girls brought their dolls.

Time to discuss God's Word.
Sarah helped the girls with the craft.
The girls made handmade Father's Day cards.
