Sweet, Sweet 16

Today is my 16th birthday! Thank you God for 16 wonderful years! :)

Here are sixteen random facts about me (that you probably already know:) .....

1. I'm left handed. My print stinks, but my cursive isn't that bad. :) I really struggled with handwriting as a kid.

2. I'm very random (and yes, I did enjoy watching the washing machine in this picture lol).
{I am the one on the left, Caldirwen is the one with the pink pajama pants}

3. I love meeting new people!! I can be quite shy when I first meet someone, but after a few minutes I'm talking their ear off! lol :D

4. I am very creative.

5. I love to sew.

6. I love jumping!

.....need I say more? :)

7. I am a Christian.

8. I love reading, but only if it's my idea. lol :D Sometimes Momma will tell me, "Eldarwen, I want you to read this book," and half the time I don't wanna do it, because, well, it wasn't my idea. Yeah. Did I mention I'm stubborn? Oh wait, that's number nine.....

9. .....I'm stubborn. lol :D

10. I'm a very curious individual.

11. I really love singing!

12. When I was 7 (or 8... I can't remember. Momma knows though) I fell in the shower and busted the skin open, between my right eyebrow and eye. I don't remember feeling a lot of pain when it happened, I just remember Narthea screaming and crying, momma shoving a towel in my face, driving to the ER screaming "I don't want stitches", and sitting in the emergency room next to an old woman who said, "What did ya do? Gouge a stick in your eye?" I was not a happy camper when the doctor walked in and said, "Boy. That is the ugliest thing I've ever seen." Dude, that is NOT something I wanted to hear at the moment! lol :D I didn't get stitches (thank goodness!). The doctor glued my skin back together. Layer by layer (I busted all the way through to the bone). So, now I have this red scar/indention over there. It's not really noticeable, but if you stare at me for a long time (weird) you'll notice it. :) Plus, the tissue above my eye was messed up, so it's kinda puffy near my scar. The doctor didn't do a good job at gluing the skin back together, and after I got home some of the underneath layers came back open, causing bleeding, and my eye swelled up to the size of a baseball (no joke). It was all purple, green, yellow and blue. Talk about a freaked out kid when I went and looked in the mirror. :O 
Oh wow, that was a long paragraph....

13. When I get around a lot of people (like, say, at a grocery store) it's hard for me to focus on one individual thing. My mind is buzzing and then I'll hear:
"Eldarwen did you hear me?"
I'm like, "Oh, uh, what did you say?" 
"Get the bread and put it in the cart!"

14. I'm not a very sporty person now, but I used to be involved in gymnastics, swimming, basketball and dance. I liked swimming and dance the best. :) 

15. My all-time, FAVORITE color is blue!!! :D

16. I'M 16!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D And I still can't believe it.... :)

My dearest Eldarwen:

I just wanted to say how very proud your Daddy and I are of you. You are beautiful inside and out. You are funny and fun. You are very talented and creative. You are maturing into a very Godly young lady. You know what you want and you are just stubborn engough to see that it happens. You are very helpful to your Daddy and to me. Most of the time you are a very good "big sister". We are very proud of the young lady that you have become, and we know you will be a wonderful wife and Mommy someday.

We love you so very much,

Momma and Daddy
Galadrimom and Galadridad
