Steve and I make to do lists and put them out on the counter so we remember what is still left with the basement. Every time Mouse sees a new list she adds have a tea party to the bottom of the list. So for October's to do list on the top of the list I wrote have a tea party. She was soo excited when she saw it.
Mouse wanted a Fairy theme party. She is completely focused on them lately. She reads the Spiderwick Chronicles and the neighbor girls reads Rainbow Fairies and then they swap Fairy stories on the bus. She decided on a purple and pink with a little green (because "Fairies live outside Mom"). Mouse, my Mom, Steve and I made tissue paper flowers, Fairy Dust bottles and Mouse made the place setting cards.
Mouse planned a menu of cucumber sandwiches, pimento cheese sandwiches and chicken salad sandwiches. Second course was scones and cream with jam. For the final course her and Grandma made cupcakes and butterfly chocolates, we also added strawberries to the plate. OK, in truth beyond Mouse only one of the girls ate all the sandwiches. (I love that friend of hers) But really all the girls were so well behaved and seem to have a good time.
