Three kids and a dog, all mine

Today, my youngest niece arrives in Houston, and I get her until a couple days after Christmas.

This evening, I get to babysit the newest member of our family, and on her six-week birthday, no less. 

Tonight, I'll fall to sleep with gratitude for the above and exitement for Saturday.

Tomorrow, my oldest niece graduates from college. 

I swear it was just yesterday when both nieces and my nephew were small enough that I could hold them in my hands.  One is a sophmore in college, one is graduating from college and one is a new father.  They may have grown, but in my heart they will always remain my babies.  Thank goodness I can still wrap these arms around them!

These are my gifts today; what are yours?
