It's absolutely beautiful! What a wonderful time to celebrate relationships, practice good manners, and have a lot of fun!!

Heidi special...takes me back to Betty's! :) Welsh rarebit anyone?!?

I can't believe how spectacular this event was...and while sick and a school play all in the same week. You are a wonder woman! I'm going to have to find you a stars & stripes strapless onsie, a golden lasso and and some strutting boots to fully complete the that would have been quite an outfit for the tea! (hee hee!) I know...I'm terrible!

Joanne, what a wonderful end-of-the-year event for your Junior troop!

I don't normally comment, but wanted to let you know what an enjoyment it is to read about your family - and your Girl Scout troops.

As a Daisy leader - and soon to be Brownie leader (as well as soon to be "Parent in charge of Junior Badges" for my oldest) - I happened upon you website a few months ago thanks to Google and one of my endless searches for Girl Scout "stuff". It has become a wonderful break in the day to read what's going on with all of you and I look forward to "borrowing" your ideas for our future scouting events - I especially love the PJs you all made!



What a beautiful tea party! You and the girls did a great job!

What a sweet idea! Those strawberries look lush! Happy Mother's Day to you, Joanne!

Love it! What a wonderful end of year party for your Girl Scouts!


That looks beautiful!


What a beautiful tea party! It makes me wish I'd had a girl. I have to borrow my nieces when I want some "girly" time.


Oh, it looks so beautiful... what a special person you are! I'm sure it was a tea party that the girls and their moms will always treasure!


How beautiful! I bet they all had a lovely time. Now I need to find me a place like that to go.


Oh how fun! These are the things you don't get to do with a Cub Scout troop. The demitasse spoon would become a dagger and things would go downhill from there!
