Severe Storm Watch! Time For Tea!!!!

Check Out This Awesome Box! No, Not a Hat Box!


What's This? Ever So Beautiful & Delicate Tea Cups??? Six? And Big Girl Sizes???


What?????? With Butterfly Handles???? OH SAMI! You Special Girl!


Isn't this the most beautiful tea cup & saucer set you ever set your eyes on??? Sami is such a lucky girl! Auntie Alice saw this, and 'due to the power of the blog' she just knew Sami needed it!!! We are so lucky Auntie Alice has a beautiful heart...

So, today, after I hike down to the bus top through the snowdrifts to get the kidlets, (there is no way the bus will make it down the driveway!) we are having a special tea party! Sami is going to be 10 tomorrow....... Thank you Auntie Alice! (Big kiss and hugs inserted right here!!!)

Severe Storm Watch: That's the weather forecast... Extreme winds from 8 am until 8pm... Problem is, the severe winds started way before 8 am here....
  • My car got stuck in the driveway... at 6:30 am... Kids and I hiked through the snow drifts to the bus stop, in the dark... Good News: More exercise, New Years resolution.
  • Bus got stuck later on... Good News: but got out (phew!)
  • Another parent spun out - a manly man... His kids are scared to death, didn't want to go to school. Good News: All are safe
  • Had to cancel Sami's 'beauty' trip to town today... It was her big birthday trip to the salon (hair, nails, little makeup - all 'natural')... Good News: We will do a home version...with special tea party (so much better than the cold salon!).. I got stuff from Auntie Paula a while ago... pedi's & mani's here we come! Better make scones! Yummers....
  • Had to 'dig out' the chicken coop door and dog kennel doors... snowed in from the drifts... Good News: Count's toward my New Year resolution of getting more exercise!
  • Good News: It could always be worse.... California has a whopper of a storm coming! Rumor is 150 mile an hour winds... Bummer is it's in the Sacramento Area, where my sis Avis is... Prayers baby...prayers...
Stay safe... Tea, anyone??? Scone?
Fa la la la la la

Tea sounds like a splendid idea - especially in that totally gorgeous tea set! Big wishes for a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAMI!! Being snowed in with tea, a beauty session and such a wonderful Mom sounds like a heavenly way to spend a birthday.

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SAMI. A BIG '10'. WOW.
ALMOST GROWN UP............
Think I'll have a cup of tea and celebrate along with you. Our storm took out our power all morning. Had woodstove going, Guy made a special run to Peet's Coffee (glorious city life), John percolated a pot of coffee in our camper parked outside. Happy New Year to all of us!!!! Aunt Alice.

Oh my goodness sakes look at what a special treasure Sami recieved. Oh Sami you are blessed!!!

Major Weather Event girl. I wasn't paying attention. Probably should call my Dad. Huh.

"Battening down the hatches" - sure it counts towards exercise but in the freakin' cold wind snow...overrated! But, I'm rooting for ya.

Oh I so love the Tea Set. Aunty Alice told me about it when she bought it. I didn't get a chance to see it so thanks for posting the photos. They are so beautiful! Happy Tea Times Love.

I've just found your blog and it is a delight! The tea set is gorgous too and just what your family needed with all that snow.
