Grace, sitting next to two women she has just met for the first time at our Christmas celebration last weekend with my side of the family: "I gonna win!" (She was talking about winning with eating...finishing her meal before the women finished theirs. Can you tell she has two older brothers? Make that two highly competitive older brothers?)
Later that day, Grace was running around shouting gleefully at one of these women because the woman commented that Grace was such a big girl: "No, I little! I little!"
She's really good at making first impressions.
Grace, while we were riding around one evening looking at Christmas lights: "But I don't wanna ride 'round lookin' at da lights! I wanna go in a house with lots of FOOD!"
Grace, singing what she heard in a Christmas song: "Cinnamon is going to town! Cinnamon is going to town!"
She has since been corrected, but not before I was able to capture her version on video.
And "Jingle Bells." When she's done singing, she's done and runs it all together.
Last night, Grace was pretending to talk on the phone, and I asked her who she was talking to. She answered me, "May-ree," and then continued on with her pretend conversation..."Sooo, how's da baby?" (Baby Jesus, that is.)
"Away in a Manger," girly-girl style, with lots and lots of head-tilting and, unfortunately, not a lot of volume as she sings that "The little Lord Jesus did lay down his sweet head":
