Sweet Lily

On Sunday, we picked up Lilianna from her bio dad.  Sunday night 4 of the kids stayed in a cabin by themselves..oooh fun.  Lily really wanted to sleep on the top bunk.  However, Benjamin was soooooooooooo excited to see Lily he really wanted to sleep in the full size bed with her.  When I agreed to let Ben stay in the kids cabin and told him he and Lily could sleep in the full size bed...I thought his head was going to explode he was so excited.
Lily, on the other hand, was not excited.  I am not sure why she is so self-centered when she gets back from new orleans - but she is always pouty and completely self-involved when she gets back.  Sunday was no exception. 
After we got everyone into bed, we prayed together and Lily thanked God for her brothers and sisters and thanked Him for the time cuddling with Benjamin.  Ben was so happy that his big sister thought that much of him I thought the smile was going to stretch off of his face.  So he did what any self-respecting 4yo boy would do...he tried to share his very special blankie with Lily....you know the one thing in the world that means the most to him. 
Ben was so happy and Lily was so happy to have made Ben that happy.
I love those moments.  Those are the things I thank God for!
