A tea party with a magical twist.

A tea party with a magical twist.

Alice originally met the Mad Hatter by going down the rabbit hole to Wonderland.  Saturday, she, the Hatter, and some other magical friends visited the Fellowship Hall inside First Presbytarian Church for a Tea Party.  Children, many dressed as their favorite princesses, dined on snacks as they were entertained by songs from familiar favorites.

Of course, the most fun of all was the meet and greet held afterward.  Autographs, pictures, and of course hugs, made for a great end to an afternoon not to be forgotten.
