What Christmas is all about...

Ellie and I went to our local grocery store this morning to ring the Salvation Army bell. It was a great morning, and Ellie enjoyed really learning the true meaning of Christmas. She was so proud to wish everyone a Merry Christmas as they walked by. I think we have a new tradition on our hands! Maybe next year, Reid can share in the ringing, too!

Good job Ellie! You look like the perfect bell ringer. Unfortunately, I didn't see many bell ringers this holiday season. I just had the biggest smile on my face knowing you were able to enjoy this activity & give back at the same time! Great tradition!

I did this for many years with Sarah and Adam, but they were in Jr. High when we started....lasted through probably Adam's freshman year in college when he started working during break. I miss ringing the bells with them but now enjoy doing it with all the Triway secretaries. A GREAT tradition!!!

Hello, and welcome to my page! I am so glad you are here. I am going to try and show you the average life of a 5 year old from my perspective. Mommy and Daddy will help me along the way if I get stuck.

Let me first introduce my family to you. I am Ellie. I am a 6 year old. I live in Ohio with my Mommy, Daddy, little brother Reid, and dog, Sophie. My mommy is a teacher. She teaches nine and ten year olds and loves it. She has been teaching for twelve years. My daddy works with computers. He works hard everyday.

We all love spending time together. I have wonderful grandparents and a terrific extended family. I am a very lucky girl. Thank you for visiting my page. Write to me any time. I love getting mail!!!
