Every year, we're faced with the same dilemma... how does one dress for the Kitchen on Christmas Eve? (Or Christmas Day, depending.) Well, this year, I figured it out. I grabbed my favourite jeans, a yummy green satin blouse, my red jumper, a red embroidered apron to keep me clean and.......
Yep! I dressed up in my tiara! I'd actually planned it the previous day, but I left it at home, accidentally. So, when Dad went over to get Grandma at lunch time (Grandma's living with me for a few months whilst she goes through knee replacement surgeries), I had him pick up the box that I'd set on my table that morning. He didn't know what was inside. Just brought it over. I just put it on, and didn't say anything. At some point, someone, either Mom or Lois, came in the kitchen and said, "Are you wearing a Tiara?!?" I smiled and said, "Yep! I'm Queen of the Kitchen today!"
Here I am, reigning over my domain:
Queen of the Kitchen (Me)
The Little Emperor (My Nephew)
The Emperor's Slave (My Sister)
The Emperor even has a "Jade Throne". It's one of those BebePods, and it's green, so when the subject of his being the Emperor came up, I just naturally named his Pod "The Jade Throne." I wish I could post a few photos of him in his throne (he LOVES it), but I must defer to the Emperor's wishes (or at least his slave's wishes!)
Anyway, here's some more images from the Kitchen Realm:
