Birthday Pook

Look who just turned 6!  I know!  We all say it, "I can't believe she's ..... already!"  "Where does the time go?"  "I remember her arrival like it was just yesterday."   BUT IT'S TRUE!  I can't believe she is 6 already! Where does the time go?! and I do remember her labor and delivery like it was just yesterday!

Here are some fun things to know about our sweet Elisabeth (Ellie).
  •   She just recently lost a front tooth and the next one is quite loose too.
  •   Her hair reaches to the bottom of her back, even though we cut about 9" off last year. 
  •   Her favorite thing to eat is "red nothing soup". {tomato soup}
  •   Her new favorite thing to do is play with Legos.
  •   She loves to be read to and always wants to "do school", but it doesn't come easy for her.
  •   Her favorite color is pink.
  •   She LOVES octopuses.
  •   She is on the small side - only 44" tall and a whopping 38 lbs!!  (At this rate, she'll NEVER get out of a car seat!)
To celebrate birthdays, we usually forego the usual "party" and go on a family outing of their choice instead.  Ellie chose the Reptile Zoo.

She loved the snakes!  I loved the glass between me and the snakes!

A two-headed turtle...really!

  Sunday, being her actual birthday, she woke up bright and early (well, she ALWAYS wakes up bright and early!)  She opened gifts before we left for church.  A potluck breakfast was previously planned for that day - that worked out well!

Fun gifts

So nice to have a big brother to help

This might come in handy

 A sweet friend of the family baked a special cake and brought it to church for her. It was a delicious carrot cake. 

Later that afternoon, Sarah was able to come over and spend some time with us too.

 Hannah also made Ellie a special cake...an octopus cake. Too cute. She loved it.

Not quite in one breath, but almost.
 What a special girl you are, Ellie.  We love you!!
