Company Christmas Party

I have said this before, but I love where I work.

They had a big Winter Carnival for employees and their kids yesterday afternoon. There was Santa pictures, blow-up bouncy things, bingo, food, a cake walk - just about everything.

The girls had such a blast that they both fell immediately asleep on the ride home (at 3:00!).

I have to say that while Sophie is hysterical and funny and the best kid's kid there is, Maya has once again proven that she will be there to take care of me when I get old and start peeing my pants.

How do I know this? Well...

  • When she won at the cake walk, she sprinted over to the table that was filled with over 50 beautiful cakes and picked out the one that I had made. It was not beautiful. It was a bundt cake that had actually fell apart and I had literally "glued" it back together with icing. And sprinkles. It was horrid. But Maya loved it and just beamed as she carried around her "saved" cake.
  • When they had their pictures taken with Santa, Sophie was so nervous that she had absolutely nothing to say. But Maya - what did she ask for? She asked him if he could bring me a digital camera because mine had gotten stolen.

I. love. her.

Man, but Maya stories can make me cry....

I so completely see her doing both of those things. Quietly and sincerely, with that earnest little face of hers...
What a perfectly beautiful little one.

(I jest of course, I'm sure she's not...)
