Tea and Fiesta in Washington

After our very successful trip to Goodwill the ladies arrived at Madame Fifi’s Tea Room at Country Village in Bothell for an Afternoon Tea.


Madame Fifi (Christine) had our lovely room all ready for us. The usual after Thanksgiving Goodwill shoppers were in attendance and this year we inducted Pat (my DIL Laura’s mother) into the group.


We each chose our tea and enoyed a relaxing time.


Our sandwiches, scones, clotted cream, lemon curd, and sweets were divine! After all this loveliness one would think we didn’t need any more food on this day but…


My SIL Letty made us a fabulous Mexican dinner. She made refried beans, Mexican rice, salsa, and carnitas for us all to enjoy. YUM! Ejola it was muy bueno!!


We capped off the night with a movie all cuddled up on the couch!

I don’t know how much longer I can keep up this pace but I’m enjoying every minute of my time in Washington with my family. Have a wonderful weekend…

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage and demanding a ransom for me to access them. Iā€™m slowly cleaning up many of my posts where PB have added ugly black and grey boxes where my photos used to be. So frustrating!

  1. Good morning Ellen B.,
    Oh it looks like you had so much fun! Did you remember to eat a scone for me?
    I just finished posting about our trip to the Mission Inn. It was beautiful, but MY BATTERY DIED within an hour of being there. So sad! I certainly do hope yours in an Energizer and it just keeps going and going.
    Have another fun day!

  2. WOW – Ellen, what coziness!!! I love that picture of everyone gathered around the couch for the movie. And that Mexican food looks delicious!!

    I enjoyed seeing what you’ve been up to this weekend. I just know your Thanksgiving Dinner will be another success!

    We had a nice and relaxing Thanksgiving this year. For the first time, we didn’t have anyone over (due to my “condition” – *grin*). So, it’s just two of us for a Thanksgiving lunch with the regular fixings. We spent our Thanksgiving evening with a family whose husband just went through a major medical procedure. We are SO THANKFUL that he is recovering well.

    Blessings. I look forward to seeing your Thanksgiving Dinner picture!

  3. You have such a lovely family. Thanks for sharing. It seems like you had a wonderful time! From tea time to dinner to movies – I think I would like to be adopted by your family. šŸ™‚

    Your pictures are fabulous! I’m drooling over the afternoon tea delights.

  4. I’m so glad you were with your family for Thanksgiving – and I’m not sure but…did you ever have to cook???? …came home to a clean house, Thanksgiving dinner at Jody’s, lunch in an English Tea Room, and Letty’s Mexican food. Sounds perfect!
    Love, Jeanie

  5. well, I don’t know who’s who up there, but I’m loving the lady in BRIGHT PURPLE who totally stands out against all you earth tone people!!

    She MUST be a kindred spirit of mine I’ve yet to meet.



  6. How wonderful. I’m with you on winding down. I have LOVED our long week together but these kids of mine keep me up WAY TOO LATE at night—I may need a couple of days to catch up come Monday.

  7. Letty’s dinner looks scrumptous…and what fun to all hang out for a movie….Dan looks like he’s ready to split, though! A GREAT THANKSgiving!

  8. Loved the photo on the big sectional with all of you! How cozy.

    Made your recipe for Breakfast Lasagna and mine was watery too. I used turkey sausage so now we know it wasn’t your ham. I’m thinking it has something to do with the frozen hash browns giving off water or the proportion of eggs to milk. I found about a zillion breakfast casseroles here http://www.bbonline.com/recipe/casseroles-breakfast.html
    and many of them were the same ingredients. But at the time I didn’t research the proportions. Now I’m on a quest to figure out why the wateryness! I’m a Happy Wonderer too.
