When In Doubt, Pinkie Out

Regan and Hadyn prepared a tea party for the three of us for lunch today. How cute is this? They made sandwiches and drinks all by themselves, set out blankets, dishes, even a vase (mason jar) of flowers (silk). It was a lot of fun. We decided we are going to make it a weekly event for after school snacks. A few things to note as you look at the picture:
1. Notice the teacups. They are from their kitchen play set, and hold, maybe 2 Tablespoons of lemonade.
2. Notice how vibrant the lemonade is. That is a smaller than average pitcher we bought in Malaysia, it holds just over a quart of liquid. The girls insisted on doing everything themselves, including mixing the lemonade. It's Crystal Light and is supposed to be mixed with two quarts of water. That was some very lemony lemonade. My cheeks still ache.
It was the best lunch date I've had in a long time. They were so proud of themselves, and I was proud of them too. I am the luckiest mom! Great kids, great husband, great life.
P.S.: Here's a little trivia question...Where does my post title come from. If you lived in my house, you'd know...

I know!! Spongebob Squarepants. The one where Spongebob goes to Sandy's tree dome for the first time for tea. I am sad...

I love your new blog look and the pictures! Levi works half day on Fridays and during the summer we'd have a picnic waiting for him for lunch. We love picnics! Your girls are so cute and way to go for doing it themselves! I'm in the mood for a little picnic now.

And yay for staying in YW's. I am really liking it...now. The two yrs I was in it in Philly, not so much. But now I am really enjoying it. I work with the Mia Maids too :)
