I forgot to post about Elizabeth's birthday! She is 5 now, and proud of it! 5 is a special age at our house. When you turn 5, you no longer get a snack at church. Also, you start getting an allowance, which also means you start paying tithing. Elizabeth has accepted these changes with grace. She paid her tithing for the first time today, in fact! She was pretty happy with herself. She boldly shows people she's a whole hand old! So cute.
We had her birthday party on the 6th of December, and we shared it with one of her best friends, another girl in the complex, named Aubrey, who turned 5 in November. It was a blast! We had the girls make their own crowns, played princess bingo, and princess cakewalk. And of course their were treats and snacks, and then the rest of the time the girls played dress up and pretend together. Here are some pictures from that special day. They are, in order: Elizabeth and Aubrey, all the girls at the party, and Elizabeth and Amelia, her favorite person from preschool.
