Impromptu Tea Party

I hate to admit it, but I was not a very good mom yesterday. I lacked patience and understanding, with Abby, completely. By the end of the day, I was exhausted, and felt extremely guilty. So, I vowed that today would be better and I would try to make up for it by making today a fun, happy day for Abby (and me).

Her bestie, Isabelle, was coming over today, so I told Abby that we could have a "Tea Party" with her. So, once Isabelle got here, the girls played while I prepared our little tea party. They were so excited to find out that not only were we going to eat fun things, but we were going to dress up in all of Abby's costume jewelry.

They were so excited. It was absolutely adorable to see them "get ready" for the tea party.
All dressed up and ready for the party.

Tea party sandwiches & cheese. This menu was customized to each girl's liking. Abby had turkey sandwiches, while Isabelle chose pb&j. When they ran out of cheese, they each asked for more. I went to the kitchen and brought them each a slice of cheese. Isabelle very sweetly asked, "Can we please have the heart cheese?"

Our apple flower. Couldn't quite think of anything cute or yellow for the center, so we settle for pepperoni.

They enjoyed their food quite a bit.

Ahhhh! It's quite cute to see these girls play together.

I had the girls pose for pictures. Abby in all her glory.

Strike a pose, Isabelle!

During the party, they discovered this fun game.

It went on...
and on and on...... until we stopped to tell Princess stories.

Our story was all about how Princess Abby and Princess Isabelle were playing in the royal parlor when a fire-breathing dragon stole them. They were being kept in the dragon's dungeon until Prince Micah came to their rescue and returned them safely, to the royal parlor where they played with their beautiful babies and lived happily ever after.

Yes, today was a much better day. :)
