Afternoon Tea

Just a quick little story. Today its just Ayana, Moses, and me at home all afternoon and evening. It's Josh's 10th Birthday Party, and my parents have taken him and his friends to see Pirates of the Caribbean 3.. which I really wanted to see by the way. But I got stuck at home. I was kind of upset, and bored, and not looking forward to being at home all day, when Ayana said to me, "Rara? Ayana, Rara, DoyDoy have party?" So we did.

There was some left over candy from Josh's goody bags, so we got out Ayana's tea set, cut up a Snickers bar, unwrapped some Hershey's kisses, got the twizzlers and lemonade out, and sat down to our lovely afternoon tea party. Of course, a tea party just wouldn't be a tea party without some wonderful entertainment, so on came the Wiggles, "Racing for the Rainbow!" Their singing and dancing routines, along with the chocolate, was the highlight of the party!It was a really cute party, and they really enjoyed it. They got all dressed up too, with Moses wearing a black cape, and Ayana a white woolen shawl. They had to have nice party clothes of course!

Then, afterwards, Ayana and I did a craft, while Moses finished watching the Wiggles. So we actually had quite a nice afternoon. Now I just have to figure out what to do with them for the next 3 1/2 hours until my parents get home. Of course, they have to go to bed at 7:30, so just 2 1/2 more hours till that! (That grimace on Moses's face in the last picture is what he does when you tell him to "smile for the camera"! He's hilarious!) Oh, and by the way.. my parents have promised to take me to see Pirates next weekend! Looking forward to that! :D

Hey Erin.

I absolutely love reading your blog. You write so well, and it makes it easy for me to keep up with what's happening with the family. Good luck turfing the yard ... maybe that will have to be a day we bring Mikiyas for a play date and put Lyle to work. :)

Hi Erin,
I too am a Canadian high school student... grade 12 in Ontario. I am sponsoring a little girl from Ethiopia and eventually want to adopt from there, so am having fun reading all the adoption blogs. Yours in particular since you are close to my age! Jus thought I'd introduce myself.. and let you know that the Moses's 'grimace' is absolutely adorable! How funny :)
