After dinner Addie put on her fancy hat and invited Vivi to a tea party in front of the Christmas tree. Vivi was already in her monster jammies but I managed to find a fancy little headdress of her own.
Given that Addie may be the clumsiest kid with water on carpet she was forced to serve air tea at her tea party. Vivi was allowed a tasty bottle of milk, which she naughtily knocked over several times throughout the little party.
While she enjoyed the small talk she was easily distracted by the plates, the cups and anything within reach, which given her current very grabby phase of life made the party very interesting, it also made her first tea party her last tea party.
At least for awhile.
The tea party was inspired by a bag of Hostess Devil’s Food Donettes we were given. Addie thought they were the perfect size for her “tea ladies” and set out to lay the scene. I decided to make them super fancy for the ladies by microwaving them for 15 seconds, just until the chocolaty outside began to melt, dusted them with rainbow sprinkles and let them cool.
Perhaps by the time Vivi is re-invited to one of Addie’s tea parties she’ll be able to have a little donette of her own. (Honestly Addie was used to her little sister, it was the bunny and the ladybug that weren’t so happy with her behavior. A spatula to the head will do that to a person.)
Disclosure: Many thanks to Hostess for sponsoring this post and for providing me and family with a supply of Donettes. Find out more about Hostess Donettes at their Facebook fan page.
