We had a wonderful evening with friends. We watched Courageous tonight. It was a really good movie. Alli was so funny.... She got up and passed kleenix out for everybody. :)
Then, after the movie was over, the girls went out on the porch to play. The dress up trunk fell down on her arm and gave her a big scrape!
She came in quietly, and was looking for ice for her arm.
I asked her what happened and she said, "Oh, nothing!"
I asked her to let me see, and she did. She had a scrape on 2 parts of her arm and explained what happened.
I said, "Mama needs to take care of you."
She said,"Oh mama....Ok..."
And I put peroxide on the scrape and cleaned it off.
Then, Daddy and I kissed her boo boo. :) She had never heard of a boo boo. LOL
She had also not had anybody kiss a wound. :(
She liked it. :)
Even though she is 12, she still needs us to kiss her boo boos, at least once, because before, nobody did.
I love adopting older kids!
There are SOOO MANY FIRSTS that they will remember. :)

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)
