Tea Time (Swanson Series, Part Three)

One of the girls' favorite activities at Gramma's house is having a tea party, complete with Great, Great, Great Grandma's china tea pot, with its stains from years of use. Of course, the "tea" that is enjoyed at these modern-day tea parties is really some form of juice, but when you hold up your pinky and talk very properly, it's nearly authentic.

Many concertos are composed by small hands right here.

Another favorite activity? Rummaging through Gramma's many totes of fabric to find the perfect piece for dress-up. Here Callie models an old dress, with a improvised veil.

You just never know what Ashleigh is going to come up with. She's sportin' a mascara mole to complete her "flapper" look.

Natalie's a vision of blue in her Indian sari-type dress. Looks like she has the model hand thing figured out as well.

Two Three peas in a pod...

What does little man Micah do during such girlie activities? He bonds with Papa of course. They putz in the garage, play trucks, and have their own party, without all the dainty foods and pinkies in the air, of course.
