On a really crazy day, I think the day before Yom Kippur or something, #1 Daughter wanted a tea party. I was really stressed, making food and getting ready for a sabbath, but didn't want to do my usual "no, not right now."
So I did my best to stall.
I gave her stuff to make invites, and baked cookies.
I had her clean the tea set, and took out the garbage.
She put a table cloth on the coffee table, and I put dishes away.
She set out the dishes and party favors, and I did laundry.
We both worked on cookies and tea throughout the whole process.
Finally, we were ready!
The whole set up. Don't you like our table cloth?!
Harvest cookies, apple slices and passion fruit tea... use what you have on hand, right?
Everything was a bit damp, but all was eaten. Even #2 drank tea!
