The other night we were walking home from a park and we passed a man (with his back to us) holding the leash of his Rottweiler dog while chatting with someone else.
He was off the sidewalk and we were on the sidewalk. We were just calmly walking by when his dog decided to LUNGE at Elijah!
Thank the Lord the man was able to pull his dog away for he was just an inch or so from TEARING INTO ELIJAH'S LITTLE FACE!!!
And Thank the Lord, the leash didn't slip off the man's hand, for the dog nearly knocked the man over he LUNGED SO HARD!
UGH! Scared us half to death!!!
One of our Argentine friends who is a tall grown man said that here those dogs are trained to attack people's faces!!!
He said that when he sees one coming, he doesn't take a chance of being bit...and crosses the street!
Thank you, Dear Jesus for Protecting little 'Lijah!

~Two good friends...Mary and Jonathan at the zoo.~
Phillip went in with them to help them and it's a good thing!
The goats trampled Phillip, stood on Mary's little head, and covered Phillip and the others' clothes with mud (and other things!!!)~
When he entered into the bamboo branches A SMALL TWIG BROKE OFF AND WENT INTO HIS EYE!!!!
He started screaming...
AND We started PRAYING!
Here he stood with a bamboo twig STICKING OUT OF HIS EYE.
Phillip looked closely and saw that it was in between his eye ball and his eye lid.
Thank the Lord Phillip was able to pull it out and his eye is ok.
(Did I mention that that there is NEVER A DULL MOMENT with our little boy!?!)
So, here is the 2nd attempt at taking his picture and ...as you can tell...he didn't feel like smiling! =) ~
So, we started his birthday party / supper without him (to let him get a little more rest), and then woke him up in time to eat something quick before we sang to him and had cake and ice cream.~
U. Charlie and A. Yoli were able to join Leo, Caro, and family and our family that night to celebrate Elijah.~
Mary is sitting beside Elijah...who is hiding behind this big gift bag. =) ~
He did a great job, and Elijah liked it. =) ~
Our first and ONLY piece of mail so far from the USA came from Grandpa and Grandma D. in AZ.
Elijah was thrilled with his card! ~
Elijah (and his family) was thrilled!
Elijah had a VERY Happy Birthday!
Thank you to each one for your sweet birthday comments! ~
