Jelly Bean Turns 8!

Jelly Bean turned 8 in mid December. I can hardly believe that it has been 8 whole years since she was born. She loves American Girl, reading, swimming, and anything that her sister likes OR anything that might annoy her sister.

Also, in our church, children can get baptized and confirmed when they are 8, and Ellie was baptized a few days after her birthday.

Her sister and her cousins made her this card

We had a family luncheon the day of the baptism

Jelly Bean and the family - sorry, Super is 5,
and well, sometimes not cooperative.
Jelly Bean and my parents.
They flew out here for the baptism
and the holidays.
We were so happy to see them!

and Mr. Simple's mom, Grandma S
Happy Birthday Jelly Bean! We love you!

I love your family picture, I think Super looks darling. I'll email you the picture from Middle's baptism, you'll feel MUCH better.
I'm so sorry we couldn't make it. I'm so glad you had a special day, she is a sweet, bright, strong little girl and we are so happy for her.
