Current Music:"Darlin' (Christmas Is Coming)" Over The Rhine (Karin's Acoustic Sketches)
Ilove all these little moments of the nieces getting older and more aware of what's going on around them, and taking part in life in new and fun ways.
The other day, this meant Grace talking to me on the phone and now being old enough to be conspiratorial regarding Christmas presents: of stealing away from everyone else with the phone, and excitedly whispering to me what she had made at school as a Christmas present for Mom and Dad. I can't get the fun and drama that was in her voice out of my head, as she really took part in the sheer anticipation of surprising someone else with a Christmas gift. One more moment of love in the world.
