Family Time Part Deux

I've been having a blast with my nieces here in California - age 12 going on 13, 10 and 3 1/2. I've been playing board games with the older girls and just making up silly games with the "big girl."

Yesterday I realized that it's really interesting to see the dynamics at play--it's like being able to go back in time to my childhood. You see, my oldest sister is their mom, and she's 9 years old than me too! So, when I see my oldest niece being a helpful big sister to my youngest niece--helping her, comforting her, playing with her--I see what it must have been like with my big sister when I was 3 1/2. Of course I don't really remember those moments, but I'm pretty sure it was probably like it is with my nieces. Very sweet.

Today's my last day in California. I head home tomorrow morning. One more day of fun in the sun!

Happy First Sunday of Advent!

Hi Susan!!

Glad you had some quality time with your nieces. They sound adorable and I'm sure they enjoyed being with their aunt.
