I have had several pictures that I wanted of my girl and this spring realized that if I wanted dress up and tea party pictures, I better get on it because the window for these shoots is not particularly large. At five, dress up and tea parties happen to be at the top of her favorite playtime activities list (along with all things crafty of course). I am going to split this session into 3 blog posts because this will be an epic overshare.
Her table and chairs were made by her Grandpa Peter (same Grandpa that made me the Cinderella Coach). She loves this table and gets a lot of use out of it.
Translation of her above expression “This is the best shoot idea you have had yet!”
This is her prim little tea time expression hee hee. So very Tori.
Tori is so dainty. I love watching her little hands and fingers when she is at work and play. She has always had awesome coordination and dexterity (she was using a fork at 1 year – none of my boys came close to that). Beyond that though, she has a natural grace about her. That is a gift I envy because I most certainly do not have that particular talent. Ever see me dance? That is rhetorical because I really don’t want those that have to speak up hee hee.
Baby brother loves to play with Sissy so I figured he would want in on the action.
He is a pretty good little pretender.
I don’t know what she was laughing about but she thought something he was doing was funny. Looks like he might have been building with her tea set as the saucer appears to be on top of the cup. Give a boy a tea set…
This one is my favorite. He wanted her to smell the flowers.
There were no real cookies at this party so the baby decided it was time to bail. He is taking his drink with him though.
