John took the boys on Monday night to my uncle's house to watch Monday night football, and left us girls at home. We were all feeling a bit lonely, so I suggested we have our own little tea party "or something", then I went to put Ava down for the night.
I came out of the kitchen to see this:
I freaked out a little and raised my voice, "What are you doing???!!!"
"Mom, I'm making a tea party for us. It's a party so we have to wear our fancy dresses. You need to wear one too."
She was a wonderful little hostess, pouring milk in every cup, "because tea is NASTY".......
.......then mixing chocolate syrup in each one. I asked why she made four cups instead of three, and she resonded, "I'm saving this one for Ava for when she grows up."
I was a little sad that Liesel felt that she was too big to put on a fancy dress, and chose to wear her pajamas instead. And she actually had hot tea in her tea cup. After all, it was a tea party.
