MMTPT231 ~ January 1, 2013 ~ Tea for Two - One Pink and One Blue
WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY MMTPT231 AND THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY
for January 1, 2013
Tea for Two one pink & one blue!
Tea for Two - One Pink and One Blue
December 19th was a glorious day
can I please have a Hip Hip Hooray?
We're gonna celebrate the birth of 2 neonates.
Double the fun because there's two, not one.
Fraternal twins are such a treat, so let's make sure this party is sweet.
As an added plus, their Grandmother is one of our own!
APandi is the Grammy of these babies who have never been alone.
For Theo & Sopris who've shared everything from day one.
Let's have a teaparty that is chock full of fun.
Their room is yellow, mint green and white
it's there they'll nap and go nighty-night.
For this very special, cherished pair
I've found a teapot with teddy bears
I don't want you to work too hard but whatever inspires you to put on their card, do it twice to make it extra nice.
Double the brads, the ribbon or pearls
make one blue for the boy and one pink for the girl.
"Two to Love" by Lenore Johnson
There's two to wash, there's two to dry,
There's two who argue, there's two who cry.
One's in the mud having a ball,
The other holds a crayon, another marked wall.
Some days seem endless, my patience grows thin.
Why was I chosen to be a mother of twins?
The answer comes clear at the end of the day,
As I tuck them in bed and to myself I say,
There's two to kiss, there's two to hug,
And best of all, there's two to love.
CHALLENGE TRANSLATION: Make a card that celebrates the birth of twins.
EXTRA POINTS FOR EXTRA COOKIES (EPEC):
Bring two of something; one in pink & one in blue.

Hi everybody. Happy New Year. I'm back.. did ya miss me?? LOL. I sure missed you guys. I'm back in limited capacity. I have to be careful how long I sit at my scrap desk. I still have to wear this neck brace for another 10 weeks or so then it's on to PT. I'm dreading that part. I've heard it's the worst part of the surgery. When I read my cheater email, I couldn't pass up making a card for Erik and Andrea. My husband and I have experienced four miscarriages is 7 years so I totally understand the thrill of these babies being born. So, without further ado, here's mine for Theo and Sopris.
Congrats to Andrea and Erik, and to Marilynn and family! How very exciting!! Every time I read a story like this one, it touches me deeply. To welcome a baby (two babies!) into the world after suffering losses is such an incredible blessing. Thank you for allowing me to share in your joy with this CARD.
