A Beautiful Day For A Tea Party :-)

Yesterday Isabella put on a fancy dress, wore a brand new sparkly purse, put on a little lip gloss, and got all ready for a ladies tea party.
Have I mentioned that I love all things feminine and girly??
Miss Bella and I got all dressed up and went to the Ritz Carlton together for some mother-daughter time at their Christmas Teddy Bear Tea Party.
We drank tea (hot cocoa for her.....with about 3 dozen mini marshmallows), munched on delicate sandwiches and tarts, and nibbled on a variety of delicious desserts. My princess looked like the Belle of the ball, and I felt like I could just burst with joy every time I looked across the table and saw my little girl smiling from ear to ear with enjoyment.
There were carols sung, a teddy bear parade, story time with Mrs. Claus and a puppet show. It was fabulous- and definitely something that will be our Christmas tradition from now on.

{I have lots of pictures, so when I get a chance, I will upload them to a picasa album, and then add a link on this post}

But for now, I'm off to get last minute chores done before my family arrives for Christmas! Where has this year gone??!

SO adorable...great pictures of Isabella, but I wanted to see a mother daughter one too! Good luck getting things ready for the holidays - I have NO clue where time went this year. Crazy, crazy.

she is so dang cute and so beautiful too. Good luck to John when that girl gets older. He's going to be fighting them off with a stick.
