Drove down to Albany and went shopping with my daughter yesterday. Adison stayed at home with her Dad. We got a lot accomplished and enjoyed our day together. But the best was when we returned home. Adison was just getting up from a late nap; I had purchased a little nutcracker for her at the Christmas Tree Shop (she has a thing for nutcrackers this year it seems). She moved his little mouth around and then put him down on the shelf to decorate. "I'll put him here near the stable so he can watch over Baby Jesus too", she said. Then she picked up her nativity pieces and told me who were the shepherds, the wise men, Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus and, of course, all of the animals. I asked who the other figures were and she said, "Oh Grandma, those are the angels. Do you know everybody now"? That was just so precious to me. After all, tis the season.
