Perfect Moment Monday--Tea Party

Today was one of two post-planning teacher work days at my school. (I'm FREE for summer after tomorrow---hurrah!)

I left work at 4 o'clock. This is very early, as during the school year the school day is over at 4:15 and I typically stick around for an hour or so each day after school is out. I picked Em up ("Mommy! You're early today!") and brought her home for a tea party in our living room.

We made lemonade for "tea," and set up a card table in the living room with my wedding China and favorite teapot. We had a variety of snacks (including cookies, of course!) We "dressed up" in Em's dress up clothes and play jewelry. She LOVED it! I had a blast watching her have such fun. She was very tickled that I allowed her to pour the "tea" all by herself. She drank nearly the entire pot because she was thrilled to repeatedly refill her teacup. What a fun I love our summer adventures! :)

My pink lemonade tea is delicious!

Notice nearly every necklace from her dress up box? And her lacy-tutu-type dress (a gift from Grandma.)

Jasmine headband, Valentine heart clip-on earrings, a lace shawl, and many necklaces...gotta love dress-up time!
