A Tea Party

A while back, Meredith wrote about saying yes instead of the routine no that moms are often guilty of. So often, I find myself answering every question with no, later, or "Go away kid, you're bothering me." Okay, maybe I don't say that last one, but I think it.

When the girls came and asked if they could have a tea party, I bit my tongue and said, "Yes!" We got out the tea pot. Made cucumber sandwiches, peppermint tea and set out some fruit and slices of plum bread and had ourselves a tea party. I even got out my hats for the girls.

And the world didn't end for me. I spent time with my kidlets and had fun. I need to say yes more often.

Yay for saying yes! The girls both look so cute - and so big. When did they grow so much?

what a wonderful way to spend part of your day!!

i love your Desert Rose pieces...we have the newest "version" of this pattern which was made only briefly in the late 90's -- it's called Orchard Glade and has a lot of blue in the border, plenty of green leaves and then various colors/types of fruit among the leaves. I find it very cheerful, tho it's not as "Heirloomy" as Desert Rose.
