One of Olivia's current favorite books is a well-loved copy of Happiness Is A Warm Puppy that belonged to me as a kid. I was reading it to her yesterday, and when we finished, I asked her "So, Olivia, what makes you happy?" She gave her answer without hesitation - "Chocolate cake!" She is sooooo her mother's daughter...
I think a story like that deserves a picture, don't you? Here's Olivia doing another of her favorite things: decorating the Christmas tree.
And here's her favorite ornament:
Yes, that's a genuine Derek Jeter Christmas ornament, given to me by my excellent mother-in-law. Olivia loves loves loves the Derek Jeter ornament. Okay, so maybe she's a little bit my daughter, too.

Wait a minute, that isn't a Graig Nettles?
And I know you're fully in the holiday spirit, but that's no reason to graft antlers on to your daughter.
The sad part is, she CAN identify Graig Nettles on sight, though she prefers Yogi Berra or Mel Allen from her Yankee alphabet book.
