Last weekend I could tell Sophia wanted something different. She had played with everything in the house and just wanted more. She loves playing with her little tea party kit so I decided we'd have a tea party. I asked her if she wanted to go outside and have a tea party. You should've seen her face. She yelled Yes! with the biggest smile on her face. 

I explained to her everything that we would need to have this party. She just nodded her head and looked so determined. We got her dressed into a pretty little dress and went into her room to get everything we needed. I let her pick out which "friends" she wanted to bring as I grabbed her tea party set. 

We headed outside and borrowed the perfect tea party table and chairs from my parents porch. Sophia even helped me carry one of the chairs. We found a perfect spot in the backyard and started to set up. I let her decide where her friends would sit. I brought a floral tray outside that I found at an antique store for her cups and tea kettle. I also brought a mason jar so we could fill with some flowers. 

We walked back over to my parents and asked my dad if we could pull some flowers out of this huge pot that he and Sophia planted flowers in earlier this summer. He of course let us and Sophia got to pick the ones she wanted. We put them into the mason jar and she was all set for her tea party.

She poured each cup with tea (water) & placed the cups on the chair beside each one of her friends. She was so serious but also so sweet. I sat in a chair away from her so I could take some pictures and every now and then she would look over at me and just smile.  

After about 20 minutes her tea party was over. My sister is staying with us and she has a dog named Penelope who was outside during her tea party. I think she had a lot to do with Sophia's short tea party.

I just love seeing her imagination as she plays. I loved everything about being child & I want to make sure Sophia will too. My parents did everything thing they could to make every day fun ... & I will do everything I can to do the same for Sophia.


  1. Hope Sophia had a great tea party with her "friends". She looks very happy. Nice pictures.
