Gingerbread, cookies and Teddy Bear Tea

We had a busy today today. First was decorating the gingerbread house. Emilio loved the frosting and putting the candy on. Not all the candy made it on to the house however.

Here is the other side of the house. Both sides have doors so I guess this is the backdoor.

Here is Emilio and his mom making cookies. They are kind of lumpy and misshapen but he had a great time making them - especially putting the sprinkles on.

In the afternoon, we went to the Ritz Carlton downtown and had Teddy Bear Tea. Here is Emilio with his teddy bear (it was sitting on his chair with a balloon attached when we were seated), a large Teddy Bear and the Elf.

It was a very nice tea. You can see what Emilio was served on his plate in front of him. The children had hot chocolate with little marshmallows, three small tea sandwiches, a little tuna salad sandwich on a roll, a gingerbread man, little chocolate covered cake, and some candy. You can imagine what he actually ate. Christina and I had a more traditional tea, including scones with cream. Not as good as Lovejoy's but very good.

The Elf put on a show, with much audience participation including singing, instruments and marching around the room. A good time was had by all.
