Last year we began a new family tradition. As the children always come home wanting snacks and to chat about their day, I decided to see if they would like afternoon tea and scones. It has turned out to be a favorite part of our day. We all have a break from work, whether it be school or housework, and take the time to be together. I hear everything that has gone in on school and they love having mother's undivided attention.
Here's a photo of Prissy ready and waiting for the children to come home from school. The tea is just finished brewing and the scones are warm from the oven. The children are due in any minute.
Here the children are home and having the tea. They all of have enjoyed Prissy's visit so much.
Today we enjoyed one of the children's favorite tea's a raspberry flavored black. Unfortunately, I was out of fresh raspberries. We love to float a few in our cups. As you can see Prissy, has jumped right into the family and has no fear of adding her two cents to any conversation.
Our scone of the day is something new, an orange and chocolate recipe that I think will become a new favorite.
Once tea is finished the children go off to finish up their home work and I tidy up the dishes and get back to whatever I happen to have planned for the day.
