Here are some of the highlights of the morning:
|getting a cuddle from Hugh Guy|
|These kids LOVE Charlotte and Charlotte ADORES them! There were smiles and giggles and cuddles galore!|
|Charlotte and the gorgeous Mary-Maye|
|a beautiful, display of vegetables for the table centerpiece|
|Jason often had two children in his arms at any given time (when he wasn't cooking, of course!)|
|Mary (the eldest) gets a cuddle from her dad|
While we were there, I noticed one of Mary-Maye's new paintings and fell in love with it! (Although, I tend to fall in love with most of her art . . . ) Mary-Maye said she would be willing to frame it and sell it for a ridiculously low price. I jumped on the opportunity!! I have officially purchased my first piece of original art! AND I LOVE IT!!! It reminds me so much of when Jason and I got engaged. We were on a beach in Oregon. It also reminds me of a picture we have from a friend's wedding that I framed for Jason a few years ago. It is also just adore the colours!

Shortly before we left, Peter (the penultimate child) was sitting and peeling an onion. I thought it was the sweetest thing:
It was a wonderful start to a wonderful day! Oh, and find the recipe for Pumpkin Pancakes here!
