Rainy days...

are perfect for tea parties!

AK and I did get out to run a few errands this morning, but other than that we're staying around home today because it's supposed to be drizzling most of the day. After lunch we decided to have a tea party with Anna Kate's new tea set (thanks Uncle Stephen, Aunt Rachael, and Leah!). She loves to play with the cakes and cups and teapot and will actually sit there with me for a good 5 minutes at a time (quite a long time for an 11-month-old's attention span!). Here are a few snapshots of our tea party.

The "spread"

"Hmm...I think I'll have the cherry pie and a cup of tea"

Taking a sip...(note: this is a prime example of why AK needs a sippy cup...she always drinks out of the wrong side of the cup!)

These next few pictures are my attempt to get a self-portrait of both of us...easier said than done!

But then I remembered that my camera has a timer! Perfect! (except for AK not exactly smiling...)

Feel free to join us anytime for a tea party! We have at least one every day!


  1. Ok Mom has said that Coop and AK look alike and I do see the cousin resemblance in that last picture. They're adorable!!!

  2. Oh also, I want a girl someday to have tea parties with! :) But if not, I'll just come over for one with you and Anna Kate!
