forgotten surprises

 One of the downfalls to having so many loving grandparents, aunts and uncles is that sometimes a present gets received and set aside for wrapping and giving and instead of the later happening, it just gets forgotten.  
That's what happened to this sweet little tea set Aunt Emily sent Addie for her birthday.  It sat up on a shelf in a sad brown box waiting to get opened, squealed at in surprise and then lovingly played with.  Quite honestly, I think Adelaide enjoyed opening this forgotten surprise today more than she would have if she had received it back in May.  Today was just an ordinary day until she suddenly had a bright beautiful shiny new tea set that was all her own.  "Just like A Bargain for Frances!" she exclaimed.  Immediately we set to work making tea, filling the sugar bowl and creamer and washing the cups and saucers.  We sat and had a lovely spot of tea together.  Probably the best 5 minutes of my day.  Thank you Aunt Em!

If you want to get a bargain for your little Frances you can find this lovely tea set here!

She's got that pinky things down! Love the reference to a great story. Wish I could've been there for tea. Hugs and Kisses all around.
