Ellie's Turn!

I need to give fair share to Ellie...so here are my top 12 2008 pictures of my sweet, high-energy, stong-willed, independent, loveable, Ellie! Of course, I will share my "I'm Thankfuls," too! Here goes!
January 2008- I'm thankful she became so much more independent! She wanted to begin dressing herself (as you will see her style choices in the above picture!), and I was all for that! With Reid being a newborn...I was so pleased that she wanted to be the big girl! I always remember seeing people with multiple kids and some would be all in mismatched clothes and maybe wearing winter boots in July....I would always tell myself that I would NEVER let my kids go out in public like that. Really???? HA! How funny is that...I could care less if she was wearing a leotard and Batman wings out in public...as long as she did it herself and helped me out....I am a happy camper!
February 2008- I am thankful for family love and togetherness!
March 2008- I am thankful that Ellie will about try anything once!
April 2008- I am thankful that Ellie takes time to stop and enjoy what life is really about.

May 2008- I am thankful that Ellie "bubbles" with personality....always!

June 2008- I am thankful that Ellie makes those around her smile. How could you not?

July 2008- I am glad Ellie always finds her "own" way of doing things!

August 2008- I am thankful that she loves to be outdoors just doing kid things!

September 2008- I am thankful that Ellie loves to learn new things. I am thankful for education that allows her the chance to soak up many new things.

October 2008- I am thankful for the unexpected with Ellie. She has taught me to go with the flow as much as I can.

November 2008- I am thankful for Ellie's beauty...inside and out.

December 2008- I am thankful to wake up to the sound of, "Mommy, is it morning, yet?" from Ellie. God has given me a great gift....and I am thankful each day! Love you, Bugs!

Ahhh, what a sweet girl. Funny how the little ones (Reid, Aidan, Drew) have changed SO much, but you have to look closer to see Ellie's changes. I mean, she's obviously aged, but it's just not so drastic! : ) I loved your thankfuls too. Very thoughtful Mommy you are!

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!!!

Many blessing to you all.

Love,
Little Ski (Ellie)
