Happy Birthday Chelsea!


This cute girl turned 11 in April. 
 
 
 
She needed a new bike that would get her through junior high and high school.  We hid the bike on the side of the house for her to find. 

She LOVES Taylor Swift if you couldn't tell by her reaction. 
 



Since we were going to get back from our trip right before her birthday, I did her birthday shopping at the beginning of March.  Since she had out grown all her clothes, I bought her clothes from her new favorite store Abercrombie and Fitch.  Little did I realize that she would grow 2 1/2 inches in 7 weeks.  So the clothes that I bought her did not fit when her birthday rolled around.
 
As we are nearing the end of her elementary school years, we have seen her doing lots of growing and learning this year.


 
Eleven Reasons We LOVE Chelsea:
1. She is so thoughtful and a little mother to Marky.  When Steve and I travel, Chelsea takes on the "mother role" with Marky. 
2. She is a very sweet girl.
2.  Works hard to accomplish her goals.  She Earned the Presidential Award in 5th Grade.
4.  She is a good writer.  We enjoy listening to her songs and poems.
5.  She is warm and thoughtful.
6.  She LOVES, LOVES, LOVES Taylor Swift and Chelsea knows all the words to all of her songs.
7.  She is a good participator in church and school (even when her mother happens to be her teacher).
8.  She is extremely physically active.  She likes to run, bike ride, dance, kart wheel, and play something on the trampoline.
9.  She is constantly reading.  She is enjoying the Classics as of late.
10.  She knows she is a daughter of God.  She tries to live that in everything she does.
11.  We are eternally grateful that she is our Daughter.
