The last almost 3 weeks have flown by! Daddy and Alli stayed home from church today, as we did not want her to get overwhelmed by too many people. I think she was a little relieved.
Last night we went to a small group get together with a meal, singing and a little study time, and she did great playing with everybody. But I think she wore herself out and was very tired.
Last night Daddy and she talked about her old animals and her new animals. She is definitely an Animal LOVER! Animals don't lie to you. They don't hurt you. (unless they are Bryan our billy goat) And they certainly don't reject you. Animals are safe.
Believe it or not, we are considering getting a dog. We have not owned a dog in more than 10 years.
Honestly, I do not miss the mess a dog brings.... but the benefit of having a loyal companion will be very good for her.
While the other girlies and I were at Church, Daddy took Alli to see the lake, throw some rocks, collect some shells and sit and talk awhile. When I got home, she was beating daddy at a game of Backgammon. He managed to do ALL that during Sunday School and Worship service! LOL
We had a nice lunch and then started the finishing touches together on our major moves from room to room. I had to move all our bathroom stuff to the other bathroom, and their stuff to their bathroom.
Farewell old bathroom! I shall miss you! GREATLY! :/
The girlies are VERY happy with their new room arrangement, and there is PLENTY of room to play Barbies.
God has truly blessed us with our new daughter. We are so proud of her, and of ALL of them.
They are doing just wonderful together. :)
