  1. I love her hair! Too funny that my Ellie would answer the questions mostly the same way. Love to you all!

  2. Hi Ellie –

    This is Grandpa. I love your list. It’s so fun reading about the things you like and that you like to do. Of course, I knew some of those things already. And it’s nice to learn more.

    It’s also fun to learn that your favorite animal is a horse, and to see several “Black Stallion” books by Walter Farley in your picture. When I was a boy, probably about your age, I read many of the Black Stallion books. Aren’t they exciting and fun ? I remember finding it hard to put the book down when I was reading those great stories. It helps me to see why your favorite animal is a horse.

    About two weeks ago, I was sitting at the kitchen table at our house, and a beautiful Indigo Bunting came to our feeder. I got my camera to get a picture of him, but by the time I got back he had moved around to the back of the feeder, and soon he flew away. Anyway, he has a beautiful indigo blue color that is very pretty, especially when he is in the sunlight.

    It’s so nice that you like art. That follows a long tradition and history in our family. It’s neat that some of those things get passed along through our genetic make-up, isn’t it ?

    You look so beautiful in your pictures with your beautiful natural smile. I wish we lived closer together so we could see you in person more often. I love you very much. Bye for now.

    Lots of Love,

    Grandpa

  3. Love your work Ellie!
