My niece M

M is 8 years old and is at such a fun age. She is old enough to carry on a long conversation but young enough that she still makes me laugh. She absolutely loves Justin Bieber. She also loves dressing up, playing with her mom's tablet, riding her bike and reading. Her favorite subject in school is spelling. That was one of my favorite subjects in school.

This is M all dressed up for school pictures. I love how cute she looks in this dress.

We went to eat lunch with M at school one day. She is SO embarrassed that I asked her dad to take a picture of us. She was almost crying.
But she got over it and we got a nice picture of us both.

I told my sister that I wanted to spend time with each of the kids one on one doing something they really wanted to do. It could take 2 minutes or 5 hours, as long as it was their choice. M loves to create things--pictures, textiles, jewelry, and more. She's very good at it. She had a hard time choosing between beading and going to Paint Yourself Silly, one of those places where you choose some pottery, paint it and then they fire it. Either one would have been fun. She choose to go to Paint Yourself Silly. She choose a "Peace" pottery piece--which is so her. I was a little boring and chose a toothbrush holder because I really need one.
M hard at work creating her masterpiece.
This is my piece. The blue and green match the colors of my bathroom and the other colors seemed to go well with blue and green.
My toothbrush masterpiece.
It was so fun to have one on one time with M. And now we each have something to remind us of our time together.
