A doll story from MaryRose Gran of 4 for your enjoyment today!
For your enjoyment today a wonderful submission from one of our readers, I just love how MaryRose Gran of 4 set this story up for us and I am so happy to share it with all of you....
...even sharing some secrets...
...and playing with my baby cousin.
Since this visit was our closest to Valentines, we decided to put on our Valentine dresses and have a tea party. Even if it was a little late.
While Aunty Anne put the baby down for a nap, I got busy in the kitchen.
My cousins started putting all the food on the table, just to see what was on hand.
I think it needs a little of this.
Must have some fresh grape juice!
Hey Josefina ! Elizabeth! You guys missed this stuff here!
The last of the cupcakes are out of the oven.
WHOA! That table is overloaded! Here’s an example of too much of a good thing!
Aunty Anne took one look at it and talked to her person. They made some real doll-size food for our party.
So we decorated the dining room. Josefina made a tea party sign, Elizabeth had the idea for balloons made of paper and pipe cleaners, I made hats and paper fans for party favors. Aunty Anne put up the streamers.
We posed in the kitchen for a picture just before the party began.
Here’s our re-worked table. OH DEAR! A real-life cousin unexpectedly showed up un-announced just before the party started! We remembered our manners, though, and apologized for not thinking to invited her and insisted she join the party.
Her dolls (Felicity and Kaya) were at home, so she used the doll sitting between me and Aunty for the party.
Here we all are enjoying our belated Valentine’s tea party.
Tee-he-he! I couldn’t resist getting my hand in this picture.
That night, after we were in our nightgowns, we watched the movie A Pleasantville Christmas which we like so much because the cast is all dolls!
The next day we posed for a family picture just before I had to go home. I sure had fun with my cousins this weekend! THE END
I hope you enjoyed the photo story by MaryRose Gran of 4 as much as I did.
