a spot o' tea

i miss being the achievement day leader. it was probably the second best calling in the world (the first being the "birthday coordinator" when i was at byu-i... seriously, that was an awesome one!) (ok, i also LOVED being the activity co-chairmen with chris in our provo family ward... that was a great one too) (nursery was also great because we had snack time) (perhaps i am just thinking of how easy these ones were compared to my current position of primary president and they all seem so great) (ok, im done with the parenthesis)
moving on...
i was lucky to have the achievement day girls over this morning and taught a little 'class' on table manners and etiquette. they are such sweet little ladies and pretty much knew more than i did. BUT the class was more of an excuse for me to have a tea party. i love tea parties.
my kids played with some other younger siblings of the girls while we had our class and then had a picnic on the floor while the girls enjoyed cookies, strawberries, cheese, and raspberry herbal tea at the table.

i hope they enjoyed it as much as i did!

im loving mums right now with all their varieties and textures






after everyone left, j and e wanted to have their own tea party with water and strawberries. so i did what all moms would do and used that as a bribe to get them to tidy up :)
they desperately wanted to do a toast with their teacups and i finally gave in. im so glad i did, look at those chubby little hands... that might be the thing i miss most when they grow up...

Ah! Lisa! I realized the moment I read the words, "achievement day leader" that we totally spaced that this morning. I am so sorry! Lexy is going to be bummed! It looks like it was a lot of fun. Thanks for all your dedication and hard work - it doesn't go unnoticed!

I stumbled onto your blog from my mom's (Donna)....I hope that is ok. I just wanted to say that I really enjoy your blog. And that I just might have a slight obsession with tea parties as well, but alas I live with 3 boys, so I have had to supress my longing for all things dainty. You have a great artistic eye (which I'm sure you got from your Mom). Great job :)

When it comes to using your pictures, I'd rather ask for forgiveness than permission.... so I'm taking that last one.

Someday our kids will have a tea party together...hopefully before they are too old to think it's lame. I actually looked at plane tickets to Florida today...$700 per ticket is not in the budget right now unfortunately.
