February is birthday month in our family and as long as we can we will celebrate 3 of the 4 birthdays in one go. Ellen is needless to say is excited. We talked about what kind of birthday it should be, talked about the cake and a date.
Ever since Ellen was introduced to her grandmothers children’s tea service, Ellen and her little sister have been playing tea parties, with water as tea and endless crackers as cookies. A theme for the party was quickly found; a garden tea party. I could start to design an invitation.
While I was playing with some pink paper, trying to put together a teapot, Ellen was pottering away across the table from me.
