We had a surprise tea party yesterday for Anna with the nieces. Melanie asked if Anna could come over at 10:30 because Abby wanted to give her a card. As Anna entered the house, Abigail and Bethany sang her “Happy Birthday.” Very quickly, Abby asked what kind of tea she wanted. Then, Bethany asked what kind Grandma would want. Anna didn’t know she had been invited for tea, but she deduced it from the conversation. The Grandma part was confusing, so she explained to Bethany that Grandma wasn’t coming over.
Abigail could hardly wait for Anna to open her gift, so they went into the living room, and about that time, Mom and I came over. Yes, it was a surprise tea party for Anna! We missed Mary, Anna Marie, and GiGi. Mary has a cold, and she didn’t want to give a new one to the little girls, who were just finishing colds, which is why Anna Marie and Gigi didn’t come.
Melanie and the girls did a great job decorating and making the “tea party” special. Abby likes to decorate with rocks (notice the table), they had bought a balloon at the grocery store the previous day, and they hung streamers too. So, we enjoyed our tea, fruit, and peanut butter balls.
Anna was surprised and was blessed by it!
