Cuteness Overload

Taking hands to say grace over dinner, Addie gives Gabe her hand and he says, "Sankyou mery much!" then they lean over their clasped hands to kiss. GAH!!!

(yes, some of you may recognize this as my facebook status. I just had to share... and this blog is the closest thing I have to a memory book. heh.)

An English Tea

Mom, Gigi, Mary and I went out for tea this afternoon and it was lovely.  The tea room was simple but beautiful, decorated with tiny tea cups, flowers and other Victorian inspired touches.  While sipping delicious teas like Peach Oolong, Jasmine and Christmas we sampled cheesecake, fresh fruit and truffles.  Cucumber sandwiches, quiches and turkey rolls.  Savory shortbread cookies and scones with lemon curd and Devonshire cream.  And chocolate dipped strawberries.  Of course. The owner (a pastry chef) and her husband run the tea room together and were very friendly and accommodating.  All in all a wonderful way to end this visit with family.  

Pinky out!
