Tea Party

When I was a little girl I remember my mom having tea parties with us. Not just the pretend kind, but actually making tea and having cookies with it. It's a fond memory. It was also something that I couldn't wait to do with my own little girl. Last year for Christmas grandma got Abigail a tea set. It has sat in her closet in the box waiting patiently until she was old enough. About a month ago I took it out of the box and put it in her bedroom. She plays with it sometimes, but mostly just loves the "poons." Tonight I decided I would initiate our first real tea party. Mama and Abigail got "dressed up" and invited Papa to her bedroom to partake of sugar cookies and tea. The pictures are what ensued.

Papa (being silly) drinking his tea.

She finally decided to try the tea...mmmmm!

Abigail helped Mama rinse the dishes afterwards.
So as we go through the next couple of weeks there are a couple of events coming up. First is Abigail's MRI. It isn't on my mind a whole lot right now, but is neatly tucked away behind other thoughts as to not send me into a panic. The second event though is one I have mentioned here and there but have not actually given full attention too yet.
On Friday May 14th we are having a Tea Party to benefit the Children's Tumor Foundation in honor of Abigail. It will be at a local coffee shop called Vecino's. It is located downtown Muncie IN on the corner of Walnut and Main. It will be from 7-9 p.m. There will be live music (with a small cover charge) as well as door prizes you can purchase raffle tickets for. We have had some really great donations, so if you are in the area, check it out! If you are facebook you can look the event up, there are some more specific listings of door prizes.
Maybe we will see some of you there,
