Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

Birthdays, Big Sky style

This afternoon, I was invited to help a young parishioner celebrate her 13th birthday in fine fashion.

At her request, a few friends gathered at the Big Yellow House for a formal outdoor tea-- complete with small sandwiches (crusts removed, of course!) and cookies on lovely china. All present were graciously attired, complete with a variety of chapeaux.




The guest of honor is in the center. Happy birthday, Megan!




After tea, and the opening of gifts suitable to the occasion, the girls ran into the yard to toss a ball about while the adults chatted.

(the bling on my hand was a party favor.)


Dad was not present at the party, because he was at home arranging the next event on the birthday schedule-- setting up targets for shooting practice.

After all, a lady should be well-rounded... and deer season isn't that far off.

And *that's* why I love you so much.
Cheers!
