The Little Empress Is Wearing Pink - It must Be Saturday! Time for Pink Lemonade
Isn't she a doll? What you can't see is, that while she's held by her mother, both sets of grandparent's are hovering around her brand new English pram. Under China's one child policy she'll probably be very spoiled - a little empress. I hope she brings a smile to your faces. She does to mine. Have a wonderful weekend.
