First, Cadence pours everyone a little water into their cup. (Cadence loves that she can do this by herself with one hand. She is such a big girl!) Then, we raise our cups in the air and say a toast - usually it is "To....(fill in with a person's name or something silly in sight).
Afterwards, we touch everyones cups saying "Cheers."
We then proceed to drink the water. The best part is the big "aaaaaahh" after we drink and the pumping our fists in the air making obnoxious sounds. Cadence loves it and so do I. It's a lot of fun. Cooper even likes to get in the action by drinking from a cup. He enjoys pretending to be big enough to drink from a cup without the majority of it spilling down the front of him!
Yesterday, Cadence has Jen, Mariah and Sharlee over for a tea party under the table (while we attended the temple for Thomas' endowment session.) I heard that was a blast too. Sounds even more like drinking party. Isn't there a phrase similar to "I'll drink you under the table!"
Come over for a drinking, I MEAN, a tea party anytime!!!
