Please forgive yesterday's picture. Xyra was disappointed with how it turned out, but didn't have time to fix it. She’s looking to find something to help in the future. Most of our outfit pictures are great, but sometimes…well, lighting can be tricky.
Back to the party report! :)
Sunday was filled with party preparations. We found a really cute tea set at Walmart; their “My Life” line. It was on sale too! Only $4.50. Pink and lavender tea service: tea pot, creamer, sugar bowl with two cups, saucers, plates, spoons, and napkins. Very cute.
You already saw my party guests Kaya, Kirsten, and Lanie!
Party day yesterday! Kirsten supplied cookies, as well as ring bologna and cheese. Kaya provided some smoked salmon, fruit, and finger cakes. Xyra did the baking…chocolate cake with pink, cream cheese icing. A grand feast!
We used Kirsten's kettle for heating the water and poured out from the pink tea pot.
What fun?! Laughing, talking, playing games, and eating! Lanie showed us new pictures of plants she wants to add to her garden this spring.
Coco joined us with her tennis ball bone toy. Tatlo was there too, but shied
away from the camera.
My favorite gift was the new Soft-as-Snow Outfit! No earmuffs, but that’s okay. I can’t wait to try it on. It’s stretchy so should fit well. The new jeans outfits fit Lanie better.
Everyone is wearing outfits they got for Christmas.
Kaya has on the Real Me Outfit (retired 2012); she looks great in lavender.
Kirsten is wearing an original creation found at our local Ace store in the gifts section. The dark green and black pattern are a bit like the dress Alice Cullen gives Bella Swan in New Moon. We need to find Kirsten hair ribbons for this one.
Lanie is also wearing an original creation. A butterfly jumper over bright yellow blouse. Xyra's mom found this one at the Sandwich Fair in Illinois.
Kaya and Kirsten joined the family in 2009 and Lanie in 2010. I’ll have more about their arrivals later. As well as all the furry members of our family.
More tomorrow! Have a great day and night!
