Today Rhonda hosted the third annual Mother-Daughter tea party at casa de Jenkins. (The first two.) Eleven moms, thirteen daughters and a whole lot of fun. Or at least I’m told. Unfortunately Rhonda didn’t take any pics this year — something about the battery being charged — so we’re limited to those taken by the professional photographer (forthcoming) and these, which I took with my iPhone:

and Finn, who didn't even attend the party but spent his afternoon instead sandwiching the outlet malls between two McDonalds.

Photo not shown: the UHaul van into which we moved two rooms full of furniture to make room for the party. Total cost of said mobile storage unit: I’d prefer to forget, but it was a lot more than if we’d have checked our furniture into a hotel.

UPDATE: Fortunately Maya Dammand brought her Windows phone and snapped some pretty nice pics.

Today Ronnie and Reese hosted their second annual tea party. (The first.) Like last year, the mother/daughter pair (okay, mostly mother) had casa de Jenkins decorated to the nines with beautiful Valentine’s Day decorations. And like last year, the mother/daughter guests all had a terrific time. (That two moms plan their vacations schedules around this event says something how its embraced.

A few pics:

This afternoon Ronnie and Reese hosted their first annual mother-daughter tea party. Finn and I weren’t there — apparently gender discrimination laws don’t apply at Casa de Jenkins — but from what I hear the party was a rip-roaring success. A few pics:

Even the dining room was well decorated.

Jayne (sans Grant) was a big help with prep.

The kitchen was looking good.

Tamir and friends.

Lotsa fun.

Moms and daughters.

Now THAT looks tasty.
