There were never such devoted sisters...

Each year around June- I, my mother, my 3 sisters and 1 sister in law gather for a week of playing and celebrating life together.  It is the highlight of the year.  We have been doing this for many years.  One of the best parts of the 'YOYO REUNION' is getting all dressed up and going to the ST James Tearoom in Albuquerque NM.
From L to R- Jamie, Janice(mom), Jill, Tanya, Jody, and Janet(me)

The name YOYO's comes from our maiden name-Duncan- like the yaya sisterhood only we are the Duncan YoYo sisterhood!
Here is a poem by my sister Jamie-

There's no where else I'd rather be
Than with my Sisters having tea.
The fancy hats, the simple talk,
The way our heels click when we walk.
The room adorned with linen and lace,
The heartfelt joy on each one's face.
The gentle aroma of our different perfumes,
Lingers with memories that fill the room.
So much love for each other we share,
All thanks to our mother, who sits with us there.
