Tea for Two

My family came home yesterday to 20 tea cups on the counter and lots of yummies uneaten in the kitchen as I had the pleasure of hosting 2 dozen of our ladies from church for morning tea. Ava had been at a vocal competition for her sweet sister Lily and was exhausted. She evidently felt she missed the party when she woke as she ran and set up tea for two the moment she got up.
She wanted to hostess me :)
She is lovely inside and out.

Ballet Love

Ava's big sister Lily is now dancing as well.  It has made a serious ballerina out of my Ava.  She is a beauty.

There is a little spot in our living room where I keep our photo album from China.  It is truly one of our most precious possessions and probably one I should keep high on a shelf. 

But I don't because this little girl simply LOVES it.  I find her here.  Remembering.  I am not sure exactly what she remembers, but I see her walk away with a smile and my heart smiles right along with her.

I love seeing the world through this little girls' eyes.  She truly does stop to smell the roses

She also stops to notice her belly during ballet.  She makes me smile!
