Having a tea party


I've been trying to think up some ways to keep Leah entertained whilst we are at home, so today we decided to give her toys a tea party. She invited her snowflake the rabbit, her ragdoll and Matilda the monkey. They look like they are enjoying themselves, don't they? And look at the nice food they have - carrots for the rabbit too!

It's so difficult to get Leah to pose when you want her to, so I managed to snap her quickly whilst she was watching one of her TV programmes (I was in the middle of my ironing at this point, so had to get the picture quick, quick, quick!)

She really loves her tea set, especially as the tea pot 'talks' and makes pouring noises when you tip it up. I'm not quite sure why she is pouring the tea in her milk jug though....


When she was finished with her tea party (and I had finished my ironing) I came back from putting the iron away and found her 'surfing' on the ironing board. I just couldn't resist putting the picture on my blog, she looks so cute LOL!

Awww, that looks great fun. With No.2 in particular, if I wanted to get stuff done in the kitchen, I would pull a chair up to the sink, and he'd play with a bowl of water and lots of pots and toy tea set, etc. for ages! Leah might like it when you get your kitchen finished?! x
