Elizabeth and Elijah home - he was a man of God who cared
for the orphans and widows...oh how we miss him! Carie and Cecelia trying to teach Elizabeth how to do "Orange Lips"
Carie lovin' on Elizabeth
with all our friends over (since she doesn't know them yet.) BUT
she warmed up and before long was lovin' the whole Birthday
party thing! She loved the cake and ice cream and
loved the presents. Elizabeth
loved the tea sets she got, the backpack, her first BIBLE!!,
the cell phone, the books, the bathtime lotions for little girls,
the stuffed animal that snores (her face lit up when she
heard it!), the Princess books and the pink leopard
print dress - complete with boa....we are so
humbled that we get to be her mommy and
daddy. Just before bed she skyped with Abby and
Ryan - and kept giving them kisses - she is a precious
princess!! We couldn't have had a better day! Yippee Jesus!!
