This is who I saw when I arrived at A Tea Affair on Monday, February 17 – our daughters, daughters-in-law, granddaughters and Mary Ellen a friend from Maine.
Well, it was not exactly like that, as the above one was a posed one after we all settled in.
It looked more like this – with tall flowers on the table.
Because we had trouble seeing each other, we moved the flowers to the window seats behind us.
I understand that this tea was organized by our daughters-in-law, Chris…
Kristen is the one who made the clues I received during the days previous to the tea.
Assisted slightly by our daughters Diane and Deb.
It was a wonderful, delightful time.
Mary Ellen offered to take a picture that included me and each of “my” girls.
I included a few fun photos that Deb and I took during the tea.
Deb took most of these close ups.
The next grouping of pictures is of our eight granddaughters – in birth order.

Though our tea came with dessert, the house added a special birthday treat for everyone because of Abby’s and my birthdays.
The day was actually Abby’s birthday. You may remember (or not) that mine was actually a week earlier. 🙂
I love delicious, petite desserts.
So ends my 70th Birthday Marathon. (You must be giving a sigh of relief.)
Now it is time to get back to a more normal life. Well, it wasn’t quite normal for the next day and a half because our Maine family was here until Wednesday morning.
