Hi!  It’s me, Lily!  And I HURT!

Let’s just say cayenne pepper doesn’t just hurt going in and leave it at that.  Dave got me so good.  Credit to him.  I haven’t decide if I’m going to escalate, but he sure does give as good as he gets.  Maybe I’ll find a prank that’s a little more jokey and a little less scary.  But hey, it was Halloween.

It’s…  what, 17 days to Disney World?  I lost count but it sounds right.  My tablet should be arriving any day!  Sabby’s going to buy Beth one too!  She’s not getting David one, though.  He’s too young, and he doesn’t need another excuse to be irresponsible with his electronics.  I still don’t know what she’s going to do with Beth, but they’re both really looking forward to it.  I’m glad.  Both Sabby and Beth seem to feel like their relationship isn’t going as well as it used to, and they need this time together.  Plus, I’ll be at Disney World!!!  It’s not exactly like I’m left out!

I think Dave is going to have a fishing trip with David.  They’ll camp out somewhere and get up early and catch the fishes.  If they’re successful, we’ll have fish for dinner for days!  If they’re not, well, at least it’s bonding time for the two of them.  It makes me happy that they’re making the effort.  You know, that’s how you can tell a bad parent from a good parent.  Both good parents and bad parents make mistakes.  Sometimes a lot of mistakes.  Sometimes good parents can hurt their children deeply.  But the difference is that good parents try.  They listen to their children when they are hurt and course correct if they have to.  And both Sabby and Dave are course correcting.  That’s what makes them good parents.

I think if someone truly loves you, almost anything can be forgiven.  And if they don’t, almost nothing can.  Probably a little bit of an exaggeration, but I think it’s right.

I talked to Sabby and I think I’m going to get my hair done this weekend with a new hairstyle.  I can’t wait!  I like my hair as it is because it’s easier to maintain, but it’s kind of boring.  I like being cute!  And if I don’t like it I can always go back.  I’ll post a picture too!!!  Maybe not the same day, but soon!!!

Anyway, I need to go to bed!  Bed is so nice!  It’s soft and warm and when the sheets are freshly washed, smells so nice!  I like bed!  But I like brushing Beth’s hair too!  And when she brushes mine!  I love having a sister, did I say that??  And chocolate!!!

Love you all!!! ❤️

Hi!  It’s me!  Lily!

So I’ve been a busy Lily!  I decided I wanted to do something a little more useful with this site, so I made a few tweaks and twizzles and pulled some strings and spat on something, and ta-daaaa!  I haven’t really changed the look of the site yet, but I added a page of my family and friends!  I need to add an entry for chocolate!  I’m not even kidding!!!

I also started going through my old posts and adding tags just so I can keep track of what I’ve talked about before!  I’ve written so much stuff that I feel like I’m going to talk about the same things over and over!  This should help!

While I was going over some photos to put in my family and friends page (do you like mine?  It’s cute!  I love that dress!!!) I thought “I’ve had this hairstyle forever.  What if I change it?”  I might do that!  What do you think?  Do you think I’d look good with a different hairstyle?  I do!  it’s been growing a little long lately anyway, it might be fun!  I’ll talk to Sabby.

Things have calmed down in the Smith family!  So there was a little bit of strife because of the election, but it all calmed down and everyone’s back to their old selves.  They might squabble and fight and stuffs, but at the end of the day, they love each other more than they care about their differences, so it’ll all work out.  Besides, they agree on more than they disagree.  They’re good people!  But there’s nothing wrong with being passionate about something.

So otherwise it was a boringly boring day.  I ran, I did school.  Oh!  How could I forget this!  Dave got me good!

So I went out into the kitchen, and I found a bowl of chocolate pudding in the fridge, just sitting there, tempting me with its chocolatey goodness.  I, naturally, was so happy, and got myself a nice heaping bowl.  Then I took a bite.

The…  silly billy…  put cayenne pepper in it!  And not a little bit, either!  I screamed and drank so much water!  Dave sauntered in, and said “I told you to watch your back”.  My face was so red!

I stomped over to him and punched his arm with the fiercest look I could muster.  “Chocolate is sacred!  Don’t mess with chocolate!”

He laughed and rubbed his arm.  “So is my sleep.  Poke the bear and get bit, kiddo.”  I lowered my head.  DAMMiT.  I stomped out of the kitchen, his laughter in my ear and burning in my mouth.  I’ll get him!

… or will I?  He messed with CHOCOLATE!!  Nothing’s sacred!!!  Who knows what he’s capable of???

Anyway, time for bed.  Love you all!!!  OW MY MOUTH.  Still burns.  ❤️
