Tea Party

....and not the political kind. ;-)

A couple of weeks ago, the stars aligned and ALL 10 of the great grand kids (#11 on the way) on one side of the family were all in the same city!  Even my cousins from Germany and California!!  Well, that called for a celebration - which in our family, is a TEA PARTY!

The table was set...using only the nice china of course! (none broke btw...a miracle!)

Everyone found their seats and checked out the food.  Apparently by smelling!

We nibbled on tiny sandwiches and fruit salad!

Sipped on tea from singing tea pots!

And chatted away!!!

Then it was time for some fun!  Poppop had bird houses for the "men" to put together!  This was right up the boys' alley!  They LOVED it!

Rhodes even got in on the action!  And knew exactly what to do with the hammer!

The girls learned a little dance taught by my cousin's wife!  Who is a professionally New York trained dancer, btw!


The boys and their finished products!  And a very proud Great Grandfather...passing on his woodworking skills!!!!

Then we rallied the troops to try and get a picture!

Not too bad, eh!?!?  And to think only 4 of 10 cousins have had children!  The great grandkids won't fit on this couch much longer!!!

Thank you Mimi and Poppop for a wonderful time!!!


  1. Oh! So glad you got all these shots! I'm linking to you today. This is just awesome. Thank you!

  2. LOVE the last shot of all of them on the couch. God has SO blessed your family! :)

  3. Man, I'm a sap! I cried at these pictures. That's so ridiculous. Linds, you are so blessed to get to share these very special moments with your grandparents. I would give anything in the world to be able to do that. Not that I have to say it, but cherish every second. Love ya!

  4. love rhodes with the hammer and of course, the last shot of all the kids---that is pretty amazing right there. looks like a blast


If you don't have anything nice to say, then, please don't say anything at all! THANKS!
