First Tea Party

A little sprite and his Mama and Papa braved the rather nutso weather we're having to pay a little visit this afternoon.  I was so very happy to see that Giddy-up. It had been a very, very long five weeks and I was sorely missing him.
Since outside play was out of the question, we had a tea party, a first for him.

He said, "What's this?" a lot.

As is usual, the thrill is the pouring and pouring, and pouring.  

If you are younger than 3 or have had no tea party experience, then the tablecloth
 is always a thick towel and the rug underneath the same.
I practice the mantra, "Stop when you get to the top," over and over. While they learn it quickly and say it as they pour, they don't stop.  Finally, I just gave him multiple cups to pour to his heart's content.

Of course, we had to do all the other usual things. Play cars, play Legos, watch the Helicopter video whilst clutching a helicopter, visit the bunny boys, go on the back porch for a popsicle,  and watch slide shows of him on the computer to the tune of "Can you Canoe?"
Hereafter, another tea party will likely be added to his line-up. Wonder how many tea parties I've had?

I've felt more like myself this weekend than any other day this past four weeks.  While, unfortunately I still have some lingering issues, I was actually able to spend most of yesterday and today up and busy.
Thank you Lord.


  1. I am so glad to hear you are starting to feel better. 4 weeks is a very long time to be sick. Of course 5 weeks is an even longer time to go without Giddy-up! love your tea party pictures - love your mantra, too!

  2. I hope you continue to improve. If you do not, get yourself to a different doctor!

    I love the tea party pictures. Have you ever noticed how children bend over the teacup to drink instead of tilting the cup toward their mouths. So cute!
