This afternoon Abby, Henry and I were all invited to attend a very special May Day party at our friend Tiffeni's house. As soon as we arrived our hostesses greeted us with beautiful ribbon sashes and garlands of spring ivy for our heads. After everyone had arrived we all gathered on the veranda of Miss Tiffeni's gorgeous house for a May Day craft as each of us made our own May Day baskets. After that we all enjoyed cake, ice cream and lemonade followed by a very sweet story told by our hostess. As a big surprise Abby and Nathan were each crowned as the King and Queen of May! As you can see Abby was overjoyed with her new title. Finally, the traditional dancing around the May pole which was so much fun for moms and kids alike! I can't tell you how nice it was to have such a wonderful diversion. For the past week and a half I've been consumed with all the details surrounding the rebuilding of our house. Which thankfully, is all falling into place. We've made some changes to our original plan which slightly delayed the work but in the end will be so much better. So it's worth the wait. Construction begins next week and I can't wait to see it all coming together and for me to be able to put our house back together.
