We've been working on a cross stitch sampler so we're skipping the graph paper one. But we saw no reason to skip the "tea party", so we baked our special pumpkin muffins and served them with milk from our little china teapot. The kids were thrilled that we even lit a candle on the table. Each child was a character from the book: Felicity, Nan, Ben, and William, and we enjoyed ourselves quite a bit!

Our Tea-Free Tea Party
What a week we've had. Sickness has been running rampant through the house, the newest addition being Makayla's ear infection brought on by the congestion from the cold she's had. Today we are supposed to be at our American Girl Book Club, right as I type this. It is the first of two months focusing on Felicity, the American Revolution girl who we just happen to be reading and studying for our unit study. :) The plan today was a "tea party" with no real tea, only juice or lemonade(which is a nice thing because we don't drink tea!). The girls were to dress up, practice their manners, talk about the first 3 books, and then try a stitching sampler on paper(markers and graph paper).
