When Royalty comes to Tea...

HRH Princess Kennedy

This past weekend we were honored to have HRH Princess Kennedy of Pflugerville grace us with her presence. The occasion was the celebration of HRH Kennedy's 4th birthday which was actually on 6th October. But as is customary with Royalty, her "official celebration" is on a different day so as to allow her subjects the joy of public celebration. According to my sources:

"The tradition of having an official birthday for the Sovereign was begun for practical reasons. Monarchs who had their birthdays in the winter months often encountered problems due to cold, wet weather spoiling parades and other outdoor celebrations."

HRH Queen Dowager Ann of Heritage Grand

Therefore, her alternate celebration fell on Saturday 18th October this year. We wish her Highness a happy and healthy year and are quite pleased to have been honored with her and her entourage in our home this year.

You're my new blog find from *Mabel's House*. We spring 50 something chickens need to stick together! Plus I've got curly hair too, although mine is Gray under the color! Nothing like Missy's at Mabel's!
I've got a Parisian Give Away (valued at $200+)going on. Come on over.
Sweet Wishes!

What precious pictures! I just love that first one... looks like you guys know how to have a good time!

And I know all about 'the last word' with my schnauzer. What is that with them? Mabel does that too once I've shamed her into being quiet(which takes forever). I'm glad I'm not the only one.

I really do need to work on training her. Now to find the poor friend who can be bait for the training... :)

I love the wording in the post. I can just imagine you had a grand time writing it. Did it take you back to England for just a moment? :)

We had such a good time, and I know Kennedy felt as special as we all think she is. Thank you for spoiling our little princess! (When did I get comfortable with having a "princess". I always swore I never would have a girly girl. Funny how that happens.)
