The girls had this party planned for a long time .
They could not wait to celebrate the first day
of 2009 ! They agreed that they would get
all dressed up and wear their best hats and
jewelry. They all looked lovely.

The table looked beautiful and delicious
with warm cider & honey topped with
freshly made whipped cream , the
finest chocolates & yummy party mix .
A beautiful flower arrangement &
colorful sparkling confetti sprinkled on
the lace tablecloth adorn the table .
Iris,Emma ,& Charlotte had plenty
of catching up to do .
Alice joined in the conversation .
She's always been a big gabber.
She used to be annoying , but all the
girls are used to her & love her
just the way she is.
Sophia , Beatrice , & Alice love showing
off their hats .They secretly try to out
do each other . The other girls know it &
think it's funny. They just chuckle quietly
to each other. It's been so much fun for
all the girls to get together and update each
other on what's been going on in their lives .
They all made a New Years promise that
they would call each other more often
and meet at least every other month for
a visit. They resolved that they would
not let so much time pass between
visits in 2009 !
