A Special Present

A few weeks back, a package came to our door.

Though I didn't know exactly what was inside, I had a feeling it's recipient would just LOVE IT.

Little did I know how that would be a vast understatement.

You see, Isabel's godparents, whom we refer to as Nina and Nino, don't live close to us.

In fact, they don't even live on the same continent.

So when Isabel's birthday rolled around, they made their goddaughter feel over the moon when they sent her a birthday gift. All the way from Korea...

She still doesn't quite grasp the concept of how distant that is, and who can blame her? She's only 5. She tries to put it in terms that she knows. Like asking if one of her grandma's lives as far away as her Nina and Nino.

No sweetheart, Grandma lives on the other side of the state. Nina and Nino live on the other side of the ocean. Way out past where Grandma lives. LOL!

So upon opening the box she found some wonderful little gifts inside!

A beautiful fan with it's own silk case, a porcelain bracelet with beautifully painted flowers on it, and best of all

an exquisite tea set complete with a porcelain tray and four tiny tea cups, all painted with brightly colored flowers! Perfect for any princess tea party!
This little girl went to town with her tea set!

A couple of days later we just HAD to set it up and have ourselves a proper tea party!

 Isabel had so much fun playing with the tea set. She even tried tea for the first time, but didn't like it as much as she hoped she would.

Here she is with her "proper" face and "proper" fan waving method! LOL She cracks me up!

These tea parties have become a regular occurrence after dinner at least once a week. 
Thank you SO much, Nina and Nino for sending over these beautiful gifts! They are perfect for her, she loves them and they always make her feel  like the princess she is! We love you!

Dylan, Liz, Isabel, Shawn and Baby
