An unexpected blog entry

Sarah's friend Jill had a great idea! Here it is:

We would like to put up a Christmas tree as a special surprise for
Ellie when she comes home from one of her chemo treatments. There are
so many people thinking or her and praying for her, and this is a
chance to show her we care.

If each person or family would like to make or buy one ornament, we
will use it to decorate the tree. Please put your name on the
ornament if possible. (an attached tag might work in some situations)
If you want to send her a Christmas card, we will collect those to
give her at the same time.

If anyone wishes to give a monetary gift, we will also pass those on
to the Skees family.

Please send or give the ornaments to Jill Snyder at 1000 East First
Street, Sanford, FL 32771. We need them by November 30.

Thank you for showing your concern and love for Ellie.

are their any "favorites" of Ellie's that we could maybe incorporate into the ornaments to make them more enjoyable for her?
example: animals, colors, hobby, ect...

Thanks for asking about what Ellie likes. Here are a few suggestions: any animals, but particularly wild animals and sea creatures, even sharks; origami; snow globes. She loves glittery and shiny. Although purchased ornaments are great, the family doesn't want anyone to feel that it's necessary to buy something. As much as Ellie enjoys crafts herself, she would appreciate a handmade ornament as well a store-bought one.

Thanks again!
