Today is Elizabeth's birthday. She is now 7 years old. It is hard for me to think that it has been 7 whole years since she was born. Elizabeth was born at home and I can vividly remember everything. When we woke up at 6:45(that was a rule in our house, we couldn't get up before then)on Sunday, December 2 2001, mom was in labor and the midwives were just arriving. We were instructed to stay in a room that was right next to Mom's room. This was all before we moved so it was in our tiny little house with very few rooms. I remember hearing her first cry and getting all excited. I remember holding her for the first time. Then I made pancakes and the midwives left and we had breakfast. I can't remember if we went to church or not. We had several people stop in and see her on the first day. Then the next day was really crazy....we were adding on to our house and the builders were all there and we had to show off our new sister to all of them...it's kinda funny when I look back! Happy birthday to my little sister!
