A Little Tea Party

 Desert Girl has been spending a lot of time having pretend tea parties with a tea party set she got for her birthday. So I asked her if she'd like to have a real tea party, and her eyes got all big like she couldn't really believe her luck. And then she said yes.

So I got out the fine china (it's hand wash only, so it was very dusty!), and Desert Girl invited over her good friend Isaac, and we made cute little muffins and put toothpicks in cantaloupe and a tablecloth on the table and it was all so over the top! (Just like that last sentence.)
 Having tea is more about the pomp and circumstance than the tea, so we made a big production of picking our teas and our snacks. Then it was time to add the hot water, which was very hot. The kids really wanted to pour from the "teapot" on the table (the creamer), so I put cold water in that, and they added it to their hot water.

 They learned how to put napkins on their laps and how to dip their tea bags and wait for the tea to steep.
 We also worked on putting up the pinkie when sipping, but that's something we'll have to practice again!

They had a super time, even though they decided they didn't really like tea and would rather just drink plain water instead. It all made me smile. A lot.

If you put enough sugar and milk in the tea, they will like it. I did as a kid.

Sounds like a resounding success!

Desert Girl needs to wear a hat . . . a big, big hat with big feathers and flowers.
