elsielynn susanne

happy birthday, elli!
i can't believe today is your 12th birthday.
i remember the day you were born like it was yesterday!
how can the (other) baby be holding the babies now?
things you might like to know about elsie:
she is a great student.
she knows a lot (or thinks she does, but who didn't when they were in 6th grade?! mary just admitted to literally thinking she knew more than mom at that age).
but really, she is a great reader & i'm sure her teacher loves her.
she is a loving sister!
she was the student manager for the varsity volleyball team this year & it was so awesome to see sisters serving each other when they really needed it. caroline would stand right behind kami to see if she needed water or her towel & elsie would stand right behind caroline ready to get her what she needed to pass on. i don't think any of the other players got this kind of attention.
she is perpetually trying to be the favorite aunt! she loves to hold bentley, play toys, or read books. she was so excited last weekend when bentley wanted her to walk him around for a long time. i'm sure her arms were sore the next day.
she loves hugs.
she has amazing style. i wish i had outfits like this girl pulls off.
she likes to be on time.
she can't sleep alone.
she reads my blog.
she is scared of scary things.
she loves pickles & mashed potatoes.
pink is her favorite color.
she shares a birthday with our aunt...will our new niece share a birthday with her?!

love you, el-bell! i hope you have a fab day in south carolina!
