We had plans with friends to have a cookout on Saturday evening at their house. After some burgers and hang-out time, we got some eggs out for the kiddos to dye.
You can see it in this picture, so I might as well interject it here. Evelyn got bit by their dog. :-( Fortunately, she shut her eye - it could have been so much worse. Mocha is an older dog, and he has a cyst on one of his back legs. He was laying in the yard, and Evelyn climbed up on his back to ride him like a horse. He snapped back at her - definitely not maliciously, more like a "get off me, kid!" - and got her. She doesn't see to be too phased by it - she keeps saying, "Mocha bit me." and "We don't ride dogs like a horse." Message received!
By the time we got home, it was pretty red and swollen. I applied frankincense (healing), lavender (soothing), melaleuca (infection & healing), and helichrysm (swelling & healing) on it in layers. It looked so much better, even just 12 hours later in the morning. She had a bit of a shiner for a few days. We are so thankful for God's protection over her...and that she's learned we don't ride dogs like horses. :-)
