"Mom, can I have a Tea Party for my Birthday?"
Ila May was turning 11 and
Kimmy wanted to make it fun and special.
Kimmy then called her mother in-law, who is a Picker.
Mema collected everything for this Tea Party.
When each girl arrived, she recieved gloves, pearls to wear, plus, and a tea cup to use and take home.
The food table was full of goodies.
Kimmy and Ila May.
Each place setting was colorfully coordinated and
The inside of the tent was fitted with a chandelier and
lace curtians that flowed in the wind.
All the girls were thrilled to be at a real Tea Party.
Mema, IlaMay and me.
My absolute, favorite picture of Ila May,
waiting for her friends to arrive
before her Tea Party.
"For I know the plans I have for you," delclares the Lord, "plans to prosper you, not to harm you, plan to give you hope and a future."
