Birthday Tea Party

All of the Berry girls had a very fun tea party celebration for Grammy's birthday.  Michelle went all out planning it and it was so much fun!  We met at Spoon's.  Michelle brought her china dishes and tea pots.  The restaurant people made us some fruit cups, herbal tea, and birthday cake.  

On our way there, Estella said, "Mom, what are we going to do at the tea party?  Are we going to eat on fancy dishes and use good manners like, please pass the tea dear?"  She was spot on...that is just what we did and it was so fun!

Grammy is getting more and more confused as she gets older.  We were singing "Happy Birthday" to her and  she didn't seem to understand what was going on.  She was trying to get her fork full of food up to her mouth and didn't seem to be able to move it.  When we finished the song, Michelle helped her with her fruit.  She enjoyed the presents, but was unable to open them or even take them out of the bag.  It was fun to help her and to see her excited about the gifts.  I think her favorite were the new wild colored knee high socks.

So precious! Emily is only interested in pretend tea parties for now, hopefully it won't be long before we can do something similar!
