E's family has been hosting a tea on or near St. Nicholas Day for as long as I've known them (well over 15 years!) and its always is such fun. I love that it kicks off the holiday season right at the beginning of the month, I love that it is a light meal served nice and early so kids aren't out past their bedtime, but I mostly love the tea. A hot cup of tea and a tea sandwich (or ten!) with a table of good people, it is oh so fun.
The girls wore their matching flower girl dresses and James's sweater has been hanging in his closet for three years waiting until he was big enough. Yea! The day finally came!
last year's tea? Amazing.
Before we left I was admiring Juliet's beautiful curls (remember the buns from earlier in the day?) and wanted to get a few photos. She loves when the camera is on her, and always hams it up. She was being so silly I just kept snapping away.
