Awards and Tea Parties

The boys are still gone.

And though we miss Jerm,

we continue to enjoy our girl time.

Shopping, check.

Crafting, check.

Library trip, check.

Sleep-out on the floor, check.check.check.

Pedicures, check.

Tea Party, check.

After homeschool today Sierra decided she wanted to host a tea party.

For us girls.

We baked sugar cookies {with some help from Pillsbury},

made mini pretzel princess wands,

and boiled water for tea.

Even Nana stopped by.



Pretzel sticks dipped in white chocolate and then rolled in sprinkles make the best princess wands, don'tchathink?



Sierra made the "place cards"



Our spread ;)


It was a good day.

I love the tea party! Very cute. The pretzels look delicious and the placecards are adorable. I might "steal" this idea for my daughter, I think she'd love it.
