Afternoon Tea February 16, 2010

I had afternoon tea with the Duchess of Canton and the Duchess of Stark today.   

Both of my ladies arrived wearing the finest dresses, jewels and sparkly face powder this commoner has ever seen. 🙂

We sipped on exotic fruit flavored tea (I did at least, they chugged apple juice) and munched on the most delicious animal crackers in all the land.


This high society event was inspired by my adorable new teapot. 

Isn’t is cute?!?!?! 

 Thanks Nana… I absolutely love it!

You just fill the little darling with water, heat it in the microwave for a few minutes and then brew your loose tea inside.

 If I lived in Holland, MI this is where I would want to work! 🙂


My Little Valentines

Ella was pretty excited to tag along to Charley’s class Valentine’s Day Party. 

When we arrived she found an open seat next to Char and tried to blend in like any other 1st grader. 

In fact, she did such a good job she scored a cupcake from one of the parent helpers.   Unfortunately that left one poor 1st grader without a treat! 

I’ve always known El Belle had game… and this just proves it!



Wish this class picture would have come out a little better, but I thought I’d put it up anyway.


Is is me… or are all red heads the class clown???


Snow Day Bliss February 10, 2010

I never realized how great a snow day could be until the girls started school.  

 No rushing to get everyone up and dressed, no packing  lunches or telling the girls to hurry up and eat their breakfast, and my personal favorite… no hairbrushing meltdowns.   

It’s like having Saturday morning mid-week! In fact, it may be the best part about winter.


To celebrate this wonderful occasion I made Peanut Butter Banana muffins (come on…like I really needed a reason! 🙂 )





It sure is nice to have no agenda and no real need to get out of your jammies.  

At least once a week everyone should have a “snow day” no matter what climate you live in.
