Happy Heavenly Birthday to my Mother in Law "Nanny"
She has been celebrating in heaven since not long after her 95th birthday, but today I just felt like remembering her with a little bit of a tea party.
I am using her mother's special china tea set, which has beautiful Japanese cherries on it.
A perfect bowl for some sweet cherries.
Over the years I have written many posts about "Nanny", since she spent so much time with us during her last years here on earth. I have listed a post down below that also has links to many stories that I've written about Nanny throughout those years. There were more than just these, because she provided many opportunities for interesting stories and just plain fun and laughter and love. She was one in a million, my mother in law, and I was so blessed to have been given the opportunity to be her "daughter in love".
Many a afternoon she and I would sit and have a cup of tea and a cookie or some other treat.
She loved sitting in the kitchen with me while I cooked supper or baked cookies...
And oftentimes she even helped!
Sometimes she would sit and hold "Baby Elva" and they would entertain each other.
I have a feeling she would love our little "Lily Grace" too!
Most of all she loved being with her family. This was our last family portrait with all of her children, grandchildren and one great-grandchild together, February 2014.
So without further adieu, if you want to know more stories you can find some here on this previous post:

Thank you for spending this little tea time with me while I remember a very special woman.
Happy Birthday, Nanny! We miss you and love you!
You will never be forgotten.
