Happy Birthday...

to Ellen! 
June 20, 2002


 11 years old today...

Ellen is our thoughtful, very generous and definite baby-loving girl! She surprises us with her neat creations and seems to always have something in mind to give to others. And when it comes to babies...well....we all have to try and ask before her if went to hold them! [smile]


Now this could be said for almost any of my siblings, but especially with her...it's hard to believe she's eleven. I feel it was just a couple years ago I was the same age, and that it certainly wasn't a dozen years ago that I was praying for a baby sister after the baby Mom was expecting back then had miscarried. Oh how excited I {and all of us} were to welcome her into our family! Time has flown on, and God continues to show us His goodness...

 [yes, Anna is a great hair doer!]

We're thankful for and LOVE YOU, Ellen!


"The Lord bless thee, and keep thee:
The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace."
