Would you like an adventure now or shall we have tea first? - Alice in Wonderland.

Alexa, Isabelle, Clara, Little Clara, and myself had a tea party Sunday afternoon.  The girls got themselves and their dolls dressed in their finery, and set the table.  Not exactly outside flower time so we borrowed some from Toni.  We had some fancy macaroons, grapes, and a small candy for each of us.

It doesn't matter if it's apple juice or just water, they love pouring it into their cup.

As ladies we put our pinkies out.  Once Lilah told Emma, "I don't have to stick out my pinky, I'm not a lady!"

Tea parties have been a tradition, often with several in one visit, dress-up or casual, at Grammy's or at home, many with treats they've prepared, and several with hair styled by Emma.  At some point we moved up to real tea sets.  Tea parties hold a special place in my heart!

This was Emma's first tea party. 

Grandpa even dressed up for this one.

One year we went to a tea room in the Kansas City area.  Once a month they had a tea party for kids complete with activities and a walk through a fairy garden.

Their dolls joined us at their own little table (in the back).

They've searched through Grammy's purses and jewelry...

... and dressed up in my clothes.  


Clara's first tea party. 

Not a lot of room when you have to fix a drawer support.  I had to pull Pat out.  He put all the drawers back, but where's the drill?  Yep inside, under a drawer.


Clara and her friends enjoyed a mud puddle on Tues.  We escaped some of the severe weather Mon. night, but we had quite a bit of rain.

Alexa's school had a STEM night Tues.  Their prepared eggs were dropped from the fire engine.  Hers survived.

Alexa liked the feret--a lot!
Where are the Piepers now?  Houston, Tx.
