Today the girls and I had the privilege of attending the 5th annual Mother-Daughter tea hosted by a gracious family from our parish.

The house was filled with lovely ladies and girls in pretty hats and dresses. And while the rain kept us from crowning the large garden statue of Our Lady, the little ones were quite happy to process around the small statue of Our Lady of Fatima while singing Mary We Crown Thee and Regina Caeli.

Our hostess had prepared quite a delightful table full of goodies, and moms and daughters brought along a few of their favorites as well. The tea was excellent, the fellowship even better and the little girls were on their best behavior.

This is truly one of my very favorite May traditions!
