Lily is energetic and playful and she makes her family laugh with joy.<br><br>Lily has entertained them with her attempts to play with the salmon in the river out back, her naughty attempt to get into a tube of moisturizing cream, and her clumsy side when she got stuck with her head in a shopping bag. She made them laugh for hours when she lay on the floor, playing with the door stop.<br><br>Nicole also called on Lily to save her when a monstrous spider in the garage caused Nicole to think she was going to be dragged off and eaten.<br><br>Lily knows how to manage Nicole's reprimands and expose her soft side.
