Christmas Tea!

One of my favorite things since moving to Charlotte is the annual Ladies Christmas Tea at our church. The first year I attended, I was in total awe.... Eighty tables for eight each creatively set for a tea party. Now, for the 4th year in a row, I have been blessed to decorate a table!

Poor Jacob has had another infection in his salivary gland (we are awaiting a referral to see a specialist), so he was with me on Friday when I set up my table. Jacob was a very good helper!

Here is my table, ready for today! Once we had my table set, Jacob and I went around and admired all the other pretty tables.

We had a surprise invitation for Abbie to also attend the tea! It was fun to get dressed up and go together. Last year she got to help me set up my table, but has never attended.

Abbie sat with her Joslyn friend at a table with no adults. I think she enjoyed her first experience at the Christmas Tea!

We ate yummy, yummy food! The assortment of treats is always fun. And we enjoyed beautiful music and a wonderful speaker. I especially appreciated the message of hope that she shared.

The highlight of the day, of course, is the fabulous fellowship with good friends. It was great to spend the afternoon with Lori, Noelle and Robin! The annual tea is truly one of my favorite Christmas traditions!!!

It is such a fun & beautiful day! Love your pictures, especially the one of you & Abbie in front of your Christmas tree! I got to bring my girls today, too & it was so sweet! I also thought the speaker today was one of the best yet, she was great!
Blessings & praying for Jacob!
