Naphtali's Tea Party

My sis gave her daughter Naphtali a dreamy tea party for her 8th birthday.  The 4th generation farmhouse that they just inherited is the backdrop.
Making tea as the girls arrive with their dolls.

Every girl has their rag doll from a local woman friend name Doris who has generously made dolls for so many little girls in the community.  Lydia was lucky to be counted in the number.  Lydia's Violet is her favorite doll and has gotten to travel with us for the occasion.  Here the girls are choosing their special tea cup.

Beautiful 8 year old, Naphtali, has chosen her tea cup.

Jemma had her own tea in the kitchen.

And so did Hadassah, giving a Gerber baby pose.
