We will always remember Ellie for her love for others, her creativity, sensitivity, and delight in life! Ellie's light has spread far and wide... may it continue to shine in our hearts.

Checking in...

Things are still as crazy as they were on my last update... The progress on the house has been great! There is paint on the walls, which thrills me to no end. Flooring is next. I will try to get pictures soon for you.

Ellie had a belated birthday party last night. She had a blast! Ginger has been working and planning the party to make it special, and when I asked Ellie if it was all that she hoped it would be, she gave me a sweet little smile and said "even more." We were even able to have a couple of friends over to celebrate with her, and Bailey and Codey put the "special" quotient right over the top. I'll get the pictures posted soon, but I wanted to at least get a quick update out now.

So far Ellie has been feeling pretty well. She has some tired times, but that's about the worst of it. She mostly has good energy and continues to hum and sing through the days. We are so looking forward to having a home again... just having a spot to be, and maybe even be able to stop the spinning... at long last. Imagine that!

Having a birthday party every month would be just about right! Good to hear your nest is about ready to be "feathered" - we women do like our own spaces. Thank you for the update - good to hear about visits, parties and sweet girl smiles!
