Xmas in July

I’m back home in New York for a short visit. My god daughters (& their folks) drove down to spend the weekend & catch up. Previously, I’ve sent them goodies that I collected for them on my travels…but this is the first time I was with them when they got their gifts and I got to see their faces. And they couldn’t have been more gracious, creative, funny and adorable.

M, 5 years old, “but I’m quite tall for my age”, modeling ALL the scarves for her various traditional Indian outfits.

A, almost 2 years old & full of character, determining the best use for a purse: pope’s hat.

M doing her reclining Buddha pose in her new dress, accessorized with Frozen sticker book. (Okay ‘rents, I feel your pain re: Frozen. I’ve seen the obsessive behavior first hand and after less than 48 hours with the girls have That Song seared into my brain.)
