I got great mail today-- a letter from my niece Mini-C!
Mini-C turned 13 in October. I simply can't believe it-- it seems like she was four years old last Tuesday. But no, she went and grew up into an awesome kid.
Today, I got a thank you note from Mini-C. I think this is the first note that I've gotten from her in ten years, and that note was written on a typewriter (on beautiful blue sky paper). I can't even begin to tell you how cool it is to see her handwriting-- it's so pretty and grown up!
I left it on the kitchen table as I worked, and a little furry puggle face snuck up and grabbed it at one point. I figured that was just Alice trying to get in trouble, so I took it from her and absent-mindedly set it on the chair. Alice returned to her spot on the bed shortly after and stayed there most of the day.
Right after Alice got up around 4:30, she walked over to the chair and slooooowly started to pull the note out. Then she ran around the room like a crazy person, waving it in the air.
Mini-C has two boxers-- she might have smelled them. Or Alice might've just really wanted her own cool letter from Mini-C.
