Good Tuesday Tea party Morning....today our tea party is out on a Lily Pad...Our Dear MotherMark has suggested we go sit on a Lily Pad! We all know Frogs look happy on a Lily Pad...catching flies! Well, These two little guys are so very happy to be out in the Beautiful Pond looking for flies...and have a great time. Not breaking any rules..they each have their own pad and didn't bring any Sumo Wrestlers out there with them! They are also very use to hopping from one pad to another...therefore no "Schnockered" at all. However, I have been to these parties and Know for sure...someone is going to break the rules! Not mentioning any names...but we know who the good and the Bad are!!!!

Ok I am late...I had trouble at the airport...they were cleaning the airport and talking about some tea partiers that were causing a lot of loud noises and making a big mess with choc and tea and cake...and there was snail slime all over the place.
Our flight was delayed and after all was cleaned up....I finally was able to board the plane and get going to France for the big race. It was a great flight but very late. Little Huggabugga is waiting at the end of the race with her delicious cupcake. She knows all about the party and her snail (her friend) is close by. He didnt get squished ... he made it to the end. He is ready for a cup of tea and a piece of cupcake...mmmmm.
