While Gregory acted grossed out by the kaesespaetzle (I had spaghetti noodles ready for him in anticipation of such a reaction), Charla inhaled deeply and exclaimed with delight, "OH! This smells like Oma Gisela's house!!"
When we visited my mom's mom in Husum, Germany, this was one of the meals we ate. That was over 1 1/2 years ago! She turned 5 on that visit. It was so heartwarming. I'll have to call Oma Gisela to tell her about it...
Notice our Steins in the background??
Germany, too ;)
And Kai is up to being his adorable self.
