Who wants Christmas today?

My niece does!

I was babysitting Niece #2 this weekend. She is a little pixie four-year-old, and I'm not sure a cuter four-year-old niece exists. [I'm smiling right now because I'm sure someone out there has an objection to that statement. Leave a comment.]

After building a fort with her and her big brother, reading plenty of princess books and getting ready for bed, she and I walked into her room so I could put her to bed. I pulled down her covers and said, "Should we say prayers?" I got on my knees, she knelt on the mattress; head down to her knees.

This is her prayer:

"Deaw Hemly Fater, I'm gwateful we could build a fowt today. Please bwess me to sleep well. Please bwess that it will be Christmas tomorrow so I can open my pwesents. Please bwess that I can get mawwied in the temple to Jarret [her big brother]. Im name o' Jesus Cwist, amen."



  1. Ha! Such a cutie. I don't have any nieces so I will second that yours is the cutest.

  2. Excuse me??? Sabrina is about as cute as they could possibly come but I have a bone to pick saying she is the cutest niece ever... I wish I could leave an attachment on here so that I could show you a picture of another niece that is oh-so adorable. You just don't see her as much. In fact, I think I will email you a picture right now. :)

  3. Thanks Kehly!! :)

    Arny... I meant to write that she is the cutest four-year-old niece I have! (I'm going to change that right now...) :)

  4. It's cool. I figure that we just need to get together more often. Speaking of which, when is your next trip to AZ? Jan/Feb is cold and depressing in UT, but delightful here. Just fyi.

  5. Yay! Good, Kristina! Makes me happy.

  6. That is adorable! I love little kids :)
