We Want Hot Chocolate For Our Tea Party!

Our Grandma and Grandpa came to our home for a few days last week and brought us back home with them for a visit. We are having a tea party today with Grandma. We asked her if we could have hot chocolate in our tea cups, and she filled the tea pot with it.
Grandma asked us which teacups we liked best. She said we could drink our hot chocolate out of them. We both like Grandma's butterfly teacups best.
Aren't these pretty tea cups? Grandma said Grandpa bought them for her.
Here is the bottom of the cup. The rim and edge around the cup and saucer are deep blue with gold design. We thought the rim was black, but in the sunlight it was clear they were blue.That is Grandma's favorite color.
We asked Grandma for toasted cheese sandwiches and fruit. Grandma gave us some jalapeno cheese puffs too, but we all decided we did not care for them. They are bright on the plates, but messy in our hands.They get our dresses kind of orange too. Grandma's black cat Joey liked them though, but Grandma would not let us feed him as many as he wanted.
I wore wings to tea. I matched the butterflies on my tea cup.
I liked the cheese sandwiches and had 4 cups of hot chocolate! Grandma had mint tea with her sandwich. I don't like mint tea, just regular tea with lots of sugar.
I really, really, really like hot chocolate, even in the summer. Today it was kind of cold outside so the hot chocolate was very good.
Very, very good!
Grandma said we did not need dessert with tea ( hot chocolate ) today because of all the hot chocolate we drank. We still think dessert would have been nice but after we drank so much coco we weren't too hungry for dessert after all. We hope you are having a very good and delicious Tea Time Tuesday today! Grandma said to visit these ladies to see more of Tea Time Tuesday, Teacup Tuesday, and all things tea ! Martha*, Terri*, Lady Katherine*, and The Plumed Pen* Do you think some of these ladies have hot chocolate instead of tea?

I think hot chocolate in pretty butterfly cups sounds very delicious! You know I love butterflies. Girls, you look so sweet in your sun dresses. Isn't it grand to be visiting with your grandparents and to enjoy such a lovely lunch and tea time on the porch. I imagine that Grandma's cat would have enjoyed milk in his teacup!!!

Karen said...

I vote for hot chocolate, too. In fact anything chocolate!! The girls look lovely and the table is so colorful. Thank you for the pics.

What a lovely tea party with your adorable granddaughters. I bought some Davidson's Children's Tea, but my two grandsons were not keen on the whole tea party idea. ;-)

Vickie said...

I can't believe that one Grandma and Grandpa could have ALL such beautiful grandchildren! I know you both are so proud. I love these little tea times with your girls - they look so precious with the wings - all they need are halos. WAIT! I think I saw them - just barely! Have a fun time!

I must be a kid too because I would rather have hot chocolate any day than tea! You are having so much fun with these pretty grand daughters...I love this age and they are just too cute! Come say hi :D

Hi, what an adorable post :) I'm with your grandchildren, I would much prefer hot chocolate over hot tea any day! I like Iced Tea, but not a fan of hot tea.

Wishing you a Happy Teacup Tuesday!

Warmest, Brenda

Deanna said...

Hot chocolate anytime!

The cups are so cute and your grands are blessed to have you in their lives.

God bless and have a great week,

This was a precious post indeed. Just darling. I think I would have picked the butterfly teacups to, they are pretty. How very luck you are to have had these two sweethearts over for tea. Take care.

Nice cocoa party and the girls looks so pretty! I didn't know 'Grandma' had so many tea sets!

Connie said...

What cute companions you had for your tea today, Kathy. I like hot chocolate every once in a while too. :D

Martha's Favorites said...

Hi: Your tea cups are beautiful as usual, but your Granddaughters are stunning! I am so jealous that you get to spend so much time with them. I have one and I see her maybe once a month. You truly are a blessed woman! Thank you for letting us peek into your wonderful life. Blessings, Martha

Terri said...

If my 10 year old son was there he would have loved hot chocolate instead of tea too!

This is such a lovely post and what a beautiful way to spend time with your loved ones.

Happy Wednesday!

Best wishes,

I love the butterfly cups and saucers.

Such beautiful young ladies. They definitely are learning to love special things in life. Good things.

Lady Katherine said...

My four year old Granddaughter said Granna! I want to have a Tea Party with those butterfly cups just like the girls in the pretty dresses. The boys guessed it was hot chocolate and all the food except for the puffs. lol I thought it was Tea with a little chocolate and milk. You can see I going back and reading, for they wanted to see all the pictures! lol What a fun time with your Granddaughters, and such a fun time you are giving my Grandchildren as we look at all your pictures.
