Look what came in the mail a couple weeks ago!
It's an invitation :)
To Rolli and Viv for a real Tea Party!!
We where excited all week with anticipation.
Vivian spent the morning of the party getting ready.
She picked our her Cinderella panties with her princess dress
and a few of my accessories to wear.
Rolli chose his 'ninja' costume with his bee costume as back-up.
Two little peas in a rocking chair,
waiting for the other guests to arrive.
'Ninja' Rolli bird watching with Granpie's binoculars.
The cousins getting a closer look at the wildlife.
Rolli and Vivian think that the birds and squirrels are always hungry at Granpie's house.
"On the count of '3' look away from the camera!"
not even a second before I took this picture these three where all smiling nicely at the camera.
Isn't that just the sweetest Tea Party?!
The table is set with a little hand painted tea set.
Rin made delicious peanut butter and banana on white bread sandwiches with strawberries, pretzels, celery and peanut butter, cheese squares on Hawaiian shell toothpicks
and high class apple juice.
There where fireman hats for each of the honored guests
and Rin even made Vivian a special hostess hat.
Of course the kids tossed the hats aside and dug right into the food.
Vivian and me.
I couldn't resist and joined the Tea Party too :)
When the last guest (Cade) arrived the 4 kids all went outside to fight zombies and other sorts of bad guys. They ran and ran and ran circles around the house.
Rolli absolutely LOves playing with the older boys.
Vivian loves to have me hold her and follow after the boys so that she doesn't miss anything.
After all that running around these Tea Party attendants where hungry for cupcakes
and hot chocolate with a candy cane for stirring.
Vivian looks right where she should be...
dressed like a princess at a Tea Party!
It made me smile to see rough-n-tough Rolli boy drinking out of such a dainty cup.
A big "Thank You" to Rin for hosting the Tea Party!
And especially for letting Vivian take credit as the hostess!
We all had loads of fun!
