"We drank tea again yesterday with the Tilsons, and met the Smiths. I find all these little parties very pleasant." ~ Jane Austen (letter to Cassandra)
We celebrated Alison's birthday and the fact that she has recently acquired a love of Jane Austen by having a little Tea Party with most of the girls.
Elizabeth Bennett paper doll I found online she comes with hats, jackets & dresses worn in the movie.
Ashley & Alison
My mom, sister in law Angie, me, sister Debbie, sister in law Ashley & sister in law Alison
Debbie and I had planned on saying things like "Alison would you like to take a turn about the room with me, you will find it so refreshing" or "Angie would you favor us on the piano forte?" or "Ashley that shirt is so becoming on you" and of course with an English accent but got caught up with just normal discussion. We think we are going to have to do it again.
