Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!

So this morning we had no idea what we were going to do!  I had my run, and Ai and Beth took Marie for a walk.  Ai and Marie are getting along great!  I’d almost send her back with Ai, they get along so well!

I mean I like Marie, but I think she’ll be sad when Ai leaves.  Oh well.

So we had a few options today.  I asked her if there was anything that she would feel bad she missed out on if she left Texas not having done it.  She said, a Rodeo.  I said…  it’s not the right season for rodeos.  I looked it up, and… yeah.  It’s not.  Aww.  No rodeos.

She was disappointed.

She said she’d heard there were some bats on a bridge here she wanted to see.

I said it was the wrong season and all the bats were hibernating.


So we thought and we thought and we thought some more, we thought and we thought till our thinkers were sore!!!

It’s hard to think with a sore thinker!!!

Then I had an idea!

An awful idea!

I had a terrible, awful idea!

… actually, it was pretty good.

I asked if she wanted to go to a game place.  There’s one over on 183 that I went to with Jack once and it was fun.

She said that sounded like fun.

So we went!!!

She said it reminded her of Akihabara, a little!!!

She’d never done bowling, so we bowled for a bit – we’re both not very good, but we had fun.  There were all sorts of games, too, and she had fun playing them all.  There were even one or two in Japanese language!!!

So after that we got some lunch and went back to the house.  Diana and Crystal and Liz came over, and we all spent the evening playing games and watching movies and doing fun things!!!  Ai made a Japanese dinner for everyone!!!

Well, fun for girls, anyway.  David just retreated to his game.  Don’t blame the kid.

Now we’re going to make a girl-pile!  All of us!  Even Ai wants to try!!!

I told her she doesn’t have to if she doesn’t want, and she said she’d try and if she didn’t like it she’d go to the couch.

So…. GIRL-PILE!!!!


I hope she doesn’t mind that one of us snores… not saying who!!!

Okay!!!  Time for bed!!!  But first we’re going to brush each others’ hair!!!  I haven’t brushed Ai’s yet here, and it’s so black and thick, like Liz’s!  We’ll make it all shiny!!!

Tomorrow is New Year’s Eve and we’re having a big party!!!!!

Love you all!!! ❤
