Today my Ellie is five years old. I can hardly believe it. In some ways, it seems such a short time sine her very first birthday, and yet I can hardly remember life before she was born.
Ellie is our storyteller. Her magnificent imagination is evident as she plays with her brother and her friends and in her many plans for sequels to her favorite books and movies. (Want to know what happens in the eighth Narnia book? Just ask Ellie.)
Ellie is thoughtful and generous and quick to forgive. She gets along well with her brothers and loves to help her parents, especially with projects. She has big ideas and big plans. She loves to be surrounded by her family.
We love to be with her, too, and look forward to seeing the way God develops Ellie's gifts and talents and interests to serve the Lord and to serve others.
Happy Birthday, Ellie!
