March was a relatively quite month, until our Birthday Marathon toward the end. This March was particularly special, because Amelia turned 8. I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (I am a Mormon), and the age of 8 is when children can choose to be baptized & become members of the Church. We were very happy to have Nana & Papa come from Utah. We were grateful Grandma, Grandpa & Aunt Katy could come from Arizona. It was a great experience for a special little girl. We missed all those who could not attend, but are thankful for those who came tom support her.
I walked through EVERY bit of my house calling Allison's name. - No Luck. Bryan even climbed into the egress to bang on the neighbor's basement window. The Officer banged on the front & back doors after ringing the doorbell repeatedly. I just kept saying that there wasn't any place else she would go.
Then, CRAZY! These two 5 yr old girls come walking between the houses from out the front door to the backyard where we were standing. I grabbed her & took her inside. Come to find out, the neighbor's 14yr old sister was upstairs the whole time. I can't imagine how she freaked when the Lady-Officer entered her house & asked her to call her mother on the phone.
I was SO grateful to find Allison, but come to find out the other girl played "Hair-Stylist" and cut chunks of Allison's hair. I think THIS girl is where I get the MOST gray hairs...
So, I took her over to look at all of the different pairs of earrings. After some talking & choosing some super-cute stuff, even promising to get her a "Best Friends" necklace set, she gathered her courage and got back into the chair. Luckily, there were 2 associates working, so they pierced both of her ears at the same time. She was surprised & relieved that it didn't hurt like she was expecting.
She loves her little, pink peace-sign earrings, but can't wait until she can change them out for another pair.
