We're All Mad Here

This morning, both of the older boys had to go to achievement tests, and my mom was volunteering at them, so I had the three littles at home. We played in the little girls' room while I was trying to think of something to do. And then, I had a stroke of genius - why not have a tea party?
We found two recipes - one for chocolate chip scones (nom) and one for almond tea cookies. Both turned out really well.
{all pictures were taken with my point and shoot, and are therefore blurry and/or bad quality}

Even P liked it better than I thought he might. But he did ask me not to tell the big boys that he had played tea party, "because they'll call me a girl." 

I told him that men in England drink tea all the time and it's actually a very manly thing to do.

I also made tea sandwiches (okay, okay - they were actually lunchmeat cut into teeny tiny fourths. But they ate them all). 

The almond tea cookies.

It's on days like this that I never want them to grow up.


Do you have any siblings? How do you spend time with them?

Have a terrific Monday (even though it is the beginning of the week)!
