Christmas baking. (Which, in our house, is code for melting chocolate and dipping anything we can find in it.)
Little humans have quite a way of sending out reminders--take a breath, relax, enjoy the moment. . .
Messy mirror, door hanging wide open, clutter splattered everywhere, swapping earrings, doing hair, morning sister scene. The everyday is my favorite. . .
When she's laughing the genuine-from-the-belly kind of laughter--her nose crinkles. It's my favorite. May her nose always crinkle. May we all experience the real-genuine-from-the-belly kind of laughter that crinkles our noses, our eyes, and our bellies from bending over with laughter.
She tries so hard, but Taza cannot keep a straight face when she sees China. (Also knowns as the giant monkey.)
