Lily wanted to go see her friend, Colin, play football last night. Our weather has gotten really cold for us the last few days. So, since it was supposed to be in the 50's, we got to dress Lily up in her adorable hat and jacket that we have only been saving for her for about 2 1/2 years. Those of you in the adoption world totally understand that statement. Of course, she wore the jacket when we first got her home, but it was way too big. Now, it fits much better. Doesn't she look like a little doll!
She really enjoyed being at the football game. It was so cold! Brrr... She ate 1 1/2 hot dogs while we were there. She ate the whole thing, too- the bun, the nacho cheese, and the hot dog. It was funny to watch Jamie tear the hot dog into little bite-size pieces with his fingers.
Here they are- Lily and her Baba. As I type this, they are snuggled together sleeping in bed. We prayed and prayed that she would be close to both of us, and God definitely granted that prayer to us.
So, here is Colin- Lily's friend. We went to school with Colin's parents ages ago. It is hard to believe that only 17 years ago, Jamie and Todd were playing football together in high school. They were best friends back then, and it is the most amazing thing when you find your true friends- it doesn't matter how much time passes, you are still friends forever. Lita wouldn't let me take her picture. But, she is the one who took Lily's pictures (for those of you who clicked on that link weeks ago to see them.) Lita is an amazing photographer and a great friend, as well. By the way, Todd is the coach of the team, so I suppose we were there to see him, too! And they won the game- big time! We had a wonderful evening with friends!
