A Spot of Tea

March 12th, 2009

It’s always fun to go to my mom’s house when she’s babysitting the grandkids and hang out with my nieces & nephew. Yesterday I spent the day enjoying a spot of tea with my nieces.
I took a little tea set over for them as a gift and of course we had to use it right away. They got all dressed up and we enjoyed tea with cream, tea cakes (tiny peanut butter & jelly sandwiches), and mini oreos.
It really is fun enjoying the little things with kids. They were so excited that they got to pour their own tea and use cream in it.
Don’t forget about our Dress Up 2 Cure event. Check out all the people that have already uploaded photos to our Flickr group.

So get your kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, pets, vegetables, or anyone dressed and if you need an excuse have a tea party. Dress up, send me a photo and I’ll donate $10 in your name to help little girls with Rett Syndrome.

Did you do anything fun yesterday?

    I love to have tea parties with my daughter…being she has 4 brothers they just aren’t that interested.

    Yesterday we planted peas, gathered eggs, swang on the swing set, and talked to a baby llama…yep farming is fun!!!

    Tea party! I used to love sandwiches with the crusts cut off and then cut into tiny little squares, just nibbling around the edges into the middle was fun :-) Fav kind, hands down sliced cucumber with cilantro chutney. Still is. Your nieces are adorable.

      Thanks Mangochild, they are pretty cute. They love getting dressed up, it’s that perfect age. Old enough to be lots of fun, but young enough to not be too cool yet.
