We All Scream For Ice Cream (Tea Party)

Time for Tea!Today makes now two months without Nana. I nearly forgot about today's tea party because I have been swamped at work with having the students taking TAKS test. This time of the year is really stressful and I can get kind of forgetful. I am sure we all have those days that when we return home from work we just want to sit down and relax and forget everything. Well thank goodness that my daughter is in an extra reading class and her sentence for today was, "We are having a tea party for my Nana today." At least she does not forget!

Time has a way of healing your heart, but then there are those moments it finds those few open cracks and tears your heart back open. I have recently read a book called "90 minutes in Heaven" by Don Piper. It has opened my eyes to what mother is experiencing in that wonderful place called Heaven. I am so looking forward to that day when we can meet again and rejoice with our Heavenly Father. I am sure she knows how much I miss her and she definitely knows how much these little girls love and miss her dearly.

Tonight we were going to try something different instead of tea. We had already had dinner for the night and everyone was wanting dessert. So I have a carton of Cherry Garcia in the freezer. I added two scoops to each cup and them sprinkled on some left over Valentines nonpareils that were pink. After sitting in the ice cream, the colors of the nonpareils started to run off and everyone then had pink ice cream.

Grace(youngest) was wanting all the cherries out of the ice cream and was very depressed that she only had two so every time I found one in mine I would give her mine. Then of course older sister was jealous. After everyone finished their dessert the oldest Sage read us some of her books from school. It turned out to be a very good night after all even though I had first forgot about the tea party.

Hope everyone has a great week and is signing up for Papaer Cowgirl. My father and I are going to be setting up a table at vendors night with Mom's memorial video playing and some of her artwork displayed. We are also going to be taking donations to go towards her scholarship fund we have set up in her honor at the local high school that she graduated from. The "Tina Wright Scholarship for Art" is a total of $1000 going to one of our local high school students. We would liek to keep this fund going for as long as we can. Hope to see and meet alot of you at Paper Cowgirl.
Get your gear ready and your horse saddled, cause the rodeo is coming!

Tina really opened doors for me and gave me courage to try things I'd never have attempted without her example...I don't just mean the soldering. Love the tea party posts. Thanks for sharing your precious memories with us.
