TEA-rrific Spring Day

So let me explain...the kids are out of school this week for Spring Break...AKA Mommy go insane week...was that too honest? I was laughing with Jackson the other day when they got out for Spring Break. He ran to the car VERY excited and I said, as I opened his door, "Jacks you look happy"...he said "of course mom it's spring break"...and then turned to me with the wit and humor of a child much older then he is and said...I was just going to say "you look sad mom"..."could it be because it's spring break"...LOL.


I had to run home and call my mom and laugh with her about what Jackson said and then we got to talking about the circle of life and how things just don't seem the same when you become an adult...esp. a mom. Awh the circle of life...


So Saturday we started off our spring break with snow...snow and um more snow...ugh! What's up with spring? I honestly think we have had more snow this past couple of weeks then what we received all winter. Crazy!


So after accepting that the kids and I would be spending a lot of time together...something I do love to do when I am organized...I decided to get organized and make this a fun week...which we are calling (thanks to the show "In the motherhood") our "stay-cation...a vacation where we are staying around here...no big plans...just fun family time.


So we "met" as a family last night and discussed somethings that we would like to do together...some of the suggestions were very practical and some well let's face it...were very dream like (awh to be young again).


One of the things that Ashlee wanted to do this week was have a "tea party"...of course this "tea party" had a very long guest list...so I had to remind her that we are doing things with our brothers this week. After much convincing...they caved and enjoyed a tea party with Ashlee today...LOL (have to admit...it was cute).

They did have one stipulation...they were not going to dress in anything Ashlee picked out. They went into their room, shut the door, and picked out some "boy dress up clothes"...aka old Halloween costumes.


Here's some pictures from our Tea party:


Ashlee totally in her element....


Jackson being a VERY good sport....


Gavin having a ball...


So as our "tea party" progressed it dawned on Jackson that I might be sharing these pictures...it was at this point that he decided perhaps a tea party with pictures wasn't the best idea...LOL

Here's the boys trying to conceal the evidence that they were actually at a tea party...LOL




Well speaking of keeping the kids busy...I better get back to them.
