Chloe's Final Day in Poland....

Today is Chloe's last FULL day in Poland. We decided to let her decide where she wanted to go.
One of her favorite treats at home is hot chocolate in her Polish pottery mug. was off to the Polish Pottery shop near the Mission Home to look for more items.
Chloe also wanted to do a little Christmas shopping.
 What better place to do that than Adam's Tie Factory. was harder than she thought! Trying to find the 'perfect tie' for a Mission President (and to keep it a secret) is not an easy task!  There are thousands and thousands of ties to choose from.
After looking through racks and racks of ties, she was able to find one that she knew her grandpa would love.
 While Chloe was Christmas shopping at Adam's Ties, guess who she ran into?  Adam himself!  He was delighted to have this young shopper in his factory.  Being the kind man he is, Chloe left with a great gift from Adam....a very warm scarf!  How did he know that our next stop was going to be a walk down Nowy Swiat and a warm scarf would come in very handy!  Thank you, Adam, for all the kindnesses you have shown to us and to the missionaries. As missionaries depart for home, this is one last place they visit (and stock up on).  May God bless you and your family.
It was getting dark, and Chloe was getting hungry, so we stopped by the E. Wedel restaurant near Nowy Swiat for sandwiches and ice cream.
 This restaurant has a great candy store in it. Chloe loved looking at all the yummy chocolate....especially the 3 foot chocolate Santa in the background.

 Taking a stroll down Nowy Swiat, a very fancy street in downtown Warsaw full of nice shops and restaurants, we stopped by one of the 1st meeting places for the Church in Poland.  Our missionaries use Nowy Swiat frequently as a place to teach people.  It has been used in past years as the Family History Center, YSA Center and all kinds of meetings.  This is a keep sake for the Church.
Today was a very full (and fun!) day. Thank you, Chloe, for all your great ideas!  We need to get you to bed early're waking up at 4 a.m. to catch a plane home tomorrow!  I don't even want to think about it :(
LAST ADDED NOTE:  Saying good-bye to Chloe just before she walks through security.  It was great to have Scott, Devin AND Chloe visit the country we have fallen in love with.  (The sunglasses served a purpose!)
