On December 18th I hosted a tea for the church ladies at our house.
Each lady brought some goodies but I made a thing or two. An injured wrist kept me from doing as much as I wanted to.
I had fun creating a few decorations.
After a devotional about "The 3 Marys", we exchanged gifts. Always lots of fun, of course!
What would a party be like without eating? Everything was very yummy! The only drink was tea...about 8 different kinds.
And the ladies were fascinated with the little napkin rings that I made, just a little rose stuck into a keychain ring.
Here we all are. There's Lucimara, Margarete, Lúcia, Luciana, Daniele, Maria, Tânia, Márcia, Ivone, Lica, Noelí, Vanessa and Lia.
A bit crowded at times in our little place but that didn't bother them one bit, they seemed to love the close fellowship!
Each lady brought packs of cookies to donate to the nursing home where we have a ministry. We know it won't take long for the 13 lbs of goodies to disappear when they are delivered!
