On Sunday when we went to church a friend of mine asked me to bring the girls to her so she could give them a little gift. They (well, Mady at this point) were quite excited to receive a mini (child-size) cutlery set for their own tea party and princess crowns. When she looked at the crowns Mady said, "Just like on the TV!" It doesn't take this girl long to catch on!
As soon as we got in the car to go home Mady declared that we needed to have a tea party. I convinced her to wait until after lunch and we'd have one with cupcakes (leftover from Daddy's cake). Next time, when I have more time to prepare, I'll pull out the box of tea cups that I have from my grandma, but for this time, we just used mugs. She didn't care, she was quite excited to wear her crown!
For the record, she even got Daddy in a crown, and I even got a picture, but it was only with the promise that it would not be published on the blog or Facebook. :)
Kate was sleeping (she misses everything good because of her naps!), but when she woke up she got to wear a crown too.
The first tea party is considered a success! The second one was begged for within hours. Thank-You Treva!
And I leave with Mady hamming it up with her crown:
