Tea Party Success
Well, that was fun!
Dahlia & I threw a "fancy tea party" (ala "Fancy Nancy") for Trudy & Maud this afternoon. It turned out really sweet. I was thinking of not doing it this week as I was totally unprepared but since Maud leaves on Sunday, I thought it would be fun to have her too, so we just said - screw it! And threw it together!
Dahlia decorated butterfly placemats & also our cups for lemonade (or milk if you think lemonade is the devil). We hung up the Princess (fancy!) bunting from her birthday party & put fresh flowers on the table. We did not have any tea.
Our menu consisted of apple streudel bites, quiche Lorraine, strawberries/bananas/blueberries & cream puffs! Yum. Dahlia licked all of the cream out of her puffs. Not very ladylike but who can blame her! I was so proud of her. She acted like a little lady & contributed to the conversation (so dang cute) & was as animated (& totally random) as ever.
It was a nice little tea party - fun to do something different with some really wonderful ladies. AND Grandma Trudy took Dahlia with her when she left - whohoo! Suddenly an unexpected afternoon of (almost) freedom! What to do, what to do! (nap? read? work on some sort of project? clean?)
Tonight we're going out for dinner with Bertil, Maud, Trudy & Roger and nO KIDS! I'm very excited about eating an entire meal in one sitting, not having to get up to go to the bathroom once (let alone 8-9 times), not stooping to pick anything up off the floor. I cannot wait!
