This year was our 5th Annual Presentation Tea Party in honor of the Theotokos entrance into the Temple.
Father was kept on his toes, as he tried to keep up with refilling the tea cups of 40 little girls, our largest group ever!
The Queen sips from her favorite tea cup, somehow she managed to swap cups when I wasn't looking to be sure she got it!
After tea, the young girls all waited patiently outside as their candles were lit,
then reverently processed into the church,
just as the young virgins did over 2000 years ago, leading our Most Holy Mother of God into the temple where she resided and prepared to become the dwelling place of our Lord,
