Lessons Learned

A few lessons that I learned and/or was reminded of courtesy of my nieces on this latest visit to see them:

A girl can never have too many lip glosses

apparently you won't get poisoned from re-applying lip gloss every 4.2 seconds.

Cookie dough truffles should probably be smuggled into the house if you want them to last more than a couple of days.

The Ladybug Game is a great Christmas gift for four year-olds.

A two year-old's favorite words are still

A nine year-old should probably not have chocolate espresso coffee beans after dinner.

Whoever invented Build-A-Bear Workshop is an evil genius.

"Beauty and the Beast" is still the best Disney movie ever (and was enjoyed by me as much as, if not more than, my nieces).

There is too much distance between and my family and I can't wait to see them again!

How was YOUR Christmas?
