tea time - san antonio kids photography

I, by nature, am not a very good verbal communicator of feelings, I have always been a writer. Even if my writing is not the most eloquent, I have always felt that I can express myself better via the written word rather than saying it out loud.

On Tuesday, I was able to spend my lunch hour with my two favorite little people, my nieces S & P. I know (to those who have seen us with them) it is more than apparent that we (Joe and I) are IN LOVE with them! When I think of how much they mean to me, I can only imagine what it will feel like to have my own children. My heart is completely FULL when I think of them and especially when I am able to spend time with them.

At lunch, P is sitting next to me at the table and out of nowhere, starts touching my face and hugging me while saying "Sweet Girl" which is one of my many names for her. Candice and I cracked up laughing to tears. It was so funny at the time and I hated to laugh because it was so special. It is definitely a moment I may never forget, that she understands and reciprocates the love that I have for her.

I felt that I should write about this because I know that this blog will serve as a "memory book, if you will, in future years and I hope that someday my nieces and my own children will be able to look back at stories and pictures and remember.

All that to say, a few weeks ago, mom and I created a memory with the girls while keeping them at her house one afternoon. We set up a tea party in the backyard and the girls had a blast eating their cookies and drinking their "tea" (milk). S doesn't quite drink out of a cup yet so she was just pouring the milk down her shirt and trying to drink the milk using only her mouth (no hands). Here are the pics....enjoy.



Look, no hands!




I love how she has her feet propped up on the table...

We started a wonderful tradition that night. Everytime the girls come over we have to have a Tea Party with milk and cookies before bed. It's so sweet!

Lauren, it would be like that commercial where the little girl makes the dad and brother dress up just to get the Orville Redenbacher popcorn...

Mom, everytime? I no! I'm surprised you are getting them to go to sleep after all the milk, cookies and excitement.
