Spring Break...Tea Party

Hello Friends! I have been on Spring Break...sort of. I took off Tuesday and Wednesday of this week to spend some time with the kiddies. It was a nice time off, even though it was cold with flurries on Tuesday. I pretty much cleaned most of the day and hung out around the house.

Tuesday evening our new friends Bo and Christa came over for pizza. They are the discussion leaders of our Crown financial Bible study and really nice people. It was nice to be able to sit down with them and ask a few questions on how to get on track with our finances. It was also cute to hear Caleb say "bye Bo."

On Wednesday Jamison had two friends (Hannah and Allison) over for a tea party. She had a been waiting for a week for this event to happen and was SO excited. It was still cool outside but the sun was shining so it made for a nice day.

This is Jamison posing before the big party:

Say "tea party!"
Here's the table set up...simple. Jamison (Jennifer...do you see Jamison twisting her hair?) put all three chairs on one side of the table so that they could all sit together. The night before Jamison and I made place cards for the party. I made Jamison's (you can see it below) and Jamison made the ones for Hannah and Allison.
Here's the food...good old peanut butter and jelly (or just peanut butter for Allison). Aunt Roni used the sandwich cutter that we have to make dolphin and heart shapes. They also had Teddy Grahams and apple juice as their "tea."

Here are the party goers (Allison, Jamison and Hannah). I had a vase ready with sunflowers but Jamison wanted to use the plastic flower and vase that came with her tea set.

I think the girls had a really good time. After they ate their lunch we made foamy visors with foamy stickers. I put each girls' name on the visor in puffy paint. Then it was off to play...of course.
So, it was overall a nice time off...yesterday catching up at work was crazy. And last night Rondell and I led our financial Bible study.
Good times had by all!

What a great memory...I used to love tea parties...The girls do them every once in a while, but momma isn't invited!

It looks like a great time was had by all! I really like how Jamison made the place cards for her little guests. I think that's the best getting the kids involved too. I can't wait til mine can participate and be a little bit more independent in creating. Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

How much fun! We did a tea party last year with some of our gal friends...we got all dressed up and used some pink china I found at a garage sale for $5.00! Nice!! Looks like the girls enjoyed themselves!!!

Kelli, This looks like a fabulous tea party and I love that you let Jamison do some of it. I'm sure she felt more proud of it because of that! We'll be having a tea party for M's birthday, and I think we'll be serving apple juice also as our "tea".

Have a beautiful Easter weekend! Blessings to you and your family!

How sweet is that. I never had a tea party as a kiddo, not a real one. Next up, the Easy-Bake-Oven party! (I never had one of those either, it's about time I get Tatum one, huh?) :)
