A Valentine's Day Tea With Babies and Pup

Today has been so pleasant and cozy for Valentines. After Zane's nap we had some lunch and then turned on Cranford to watch and a nice cozy tea.
Zane and Strydess waiting together for tea to be brought out. They were watching a lady and little girl walking down the side walk.
 Zane loves watching period dramas. He loves looking for the horses and when he sees them he says, "MOOO" :)
Nana Strydess caring for the baby while I am busy.
When tea and the cookies were ready Zane couldn't stop saying "more, more, more, please, please"
When he saw the steam coming off the tea cup he loved playing with it.
In the middle of our tea and Cranford time the post arrived and a Valentine's Card from Grandma Ginny. Inclosed inside the card was a sweet gift for Ezra. 
Zane loved the teddy bear on the front of the card. 
So he had to kiss it of course :)
Zane insists the tea isn't hot for him, with his "more, more, more"I can't resist him and I let him sip my tea after warning him it is hot So he sips it very gently and carefully and then he says, "please, please, please, more, more, more" :)
Little Ezra was enjoying the sun shine coming through the window on the couch. He slept a bit and then he awoke for tea which he kicked his legs up and down and stared up at me. His cute little nose and lips are so kissable for mommy,
Here he fell asleep again after a nice long feeding. 
Hope you have time to get cozy and snug this sweet day. 
Much Love to you all!

Valentines Tea Party

A couple of weeks back I hosted a Valentine's Tea party at my house. Some lovely ladies from my church came as well as my dear Friend Jodi over at ~Wonderful World of Love~
It was so delightful.  
Delicious food, lovely flowers and tea arrived with all the beautiful faces that carried them.
Daisy over at developpé...graceful becoming  made these adorable cookies on a stick. 
 We also made Valentine Cards and a Valentines craft.
This was the craft we made. My mom was the one who gave me this idea. 
The clanking of tea cups and the sips of tea were thoroughly enjoyed over delicious conversation with lots of laughter and fun.
Wishing you all a very delightful Valentines!
Much love to all my lovely friends,
~ Marie

The Bliss of Valentines ♥

Can't express my love and delight for February enough. It welcomes the thought and hope of springs arrival I think. Or because it takes such a change of the dark and stormy winter months to such a colorful charm of flowers and the delights of chocolates and the special care to writing our thoughts out to those those we love.
Reds, pinks and the dark color of chocolate is so beautiful.
John 14:21
The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.]  
Wishing you all a blessed Sunday
♥ Marie
