Birthday Girl--sweet 16!

My oldest daughter Ellyn turned 16 on October 31. She was born at 6:05 on a Halloween night. How could she be 16 already? Wasn't it yesterday that she was running around in the back yard playing Little House on the Prairie? Wasn't it yesterday that she was rocking and burping her babies?  She has grown into a beautiful young woman and we are so proud of her.

Sixteen things about Ellyn...

1. She is beautiful--inside and out.
2. She is smart and a good student.
3. She understands herself better than many adults do. She knows her strengths and weaknesses.
4. She has a great sense of humor.
5. She is extroverted and loves people.
6. She is a leader.
7. She is creative--I love her originality when she makes something.
8. She is stubborn and strong willed.
9. She is passionate and dramatic.
10. She is spunky and competitive.
11. She has a fiery personality that matches her vibrant hair.
12. She isn't afraid of being unique.
13. She loves Jesus and is purposeful in living out her faith.
14. She loves her brothers and sister.
15. She doesn't like to cook. (She might need to live with her younger brother or sister when she moves away from home. They know how to cook better than she does.)
16. She is a truth speaker.

Happy 16th birthday Ellyn! I hope you had a great birthday yesterday. I am so blessed to have a daughter like you.
