TEA FOR TWO

Last week, my youngest daughter wanted to surprise me with our own girls tea party. It was such a sweet gesture on her part. I'm glad she decided to do this because it was so much fun! What started out to be a girly tea party ended up being pretty unconventional! We were not minding our manners at all! I was trying to mimic the way you should act properly at a tea, and then on the flip side, we were all talking with mouths full of crackers. You had to be there.

Here we have a tray with all the goodies she put together! Saltines, ritz crackers, blueberry scones, sliced cheese, and good ole' sandwich meat.

We had the tea in the girls' room, of course, so the boys couldn't disturb us! What you see there is a towel under the plate, lol, and Veronica's own cracker sandwich!

I love how she just threw it all together!

This was toward the end. Can you tell by the way the sandwich meat is just laying there?

"How ya like me now, mom?"

Thanks for the party, Veronica!
