Our beloved neighbors–Jenny and Lucia–invited the children for a tea party yesterday. Lucia didn’t have school, so the kids were thrilled to have extra time together.
Before the tea party, Monkey decided that a few presents had to be readied for our hosts. She quickly crafted a pot pad holder on her loom as a gift for Ms. Jenny, then she organized Team Small Fry out front, and I was instructed to come out and take pictures.
Each child is wearing three items of clothing crafted by a family member: The beautiful fall sweater and strawberry hat were gifts to Yessa from Grandma Vermont. The pink and purple scarf was knit for Monkey by Aunt Liz.
Lucia and Jenny were tickled with the suprises, and Yessa was thrilled to get to practice blowing out the candle for her birthday next weekend. Jenny had a birthday plate and a candle all set for her, and we sang Happy Birthday.
This lovely photograph taken by the amazing Jenny Rulli! Thank you, sweet friend.
A good time had by all.
