That is what she calls it!  I am not sure what she likes best,  Tea Party or a Book. Loves to grab an old pair of glasses and a book. This particular time she was "reading to her bears". She had already got the bear on the left to sleep! Hope you've enjoyed FOTO FRIDAY with me.  Have a great weekend.
