A Very Special Afternoon

What a treat!

Lulu was invited by her friend, K,
to the St. Regis Hotel...
to have tea with Santa.

First, there was the incredibly impressive
Gingerbear House.

Made from :
800 eggs, 350 pounds of sugar, 1000 pounds of flour, 400 pounds of icing

and took 500+ hours to create.

Next was tea, hot chocolate and sweet treats.
(Which is what the girls started with first!)

And then there was the anticipation...

for you-know-who.

Yep, he stopped and talked at length
with both girls.

It was quite the experience...even for this "grown-up"!

Their tree was pretty impressive, too. Gorgeous!

Thanks for visiting and be sure to check out
other fabulous mosaics over at Mary's!
