Tea time 1 ~Shawn n Sams' fun time

Tea time is a very interesting time for us. Shawn and Sam will get ready their own chairs and sits nicely waiting for the snacks. Simon will make coffee and I will get ready snacks for everyone. (but of course the kids don't drink coffee they drink juices) Sometimes we have friends coming over for tea too. That will be even more merrier with the chit chat with friends and the kids laughter. We have this tea time habit ever since.......When? I can't remember haha... We are having cupcakes today. Everyone can have one piece, it is so easy to serve. Sometimes I will add frosting on the cupcakes. It will be more interesting . You can make freshly bake cupcakes too, without using the pop out ingredients from a premix box. How that?
