Not Odd Like Me

Dear Elizabeth,

Happy Birthday! I just can't believe you're 4 years old. 

Here are 4 great reasons to be 4.

1. 4 is an even number. Thank God you're not odd like me. (Claire is 11)

2. When you're 4 you're considered a big girl. yah!

3. You're 4 times super speedier than when you were 3!

4. Your birthday cake has not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 candles on it.


Guess what? I'm putting a *goat in your name! Ain't it great!

*Auntie Claire is sharing the cost of a goat through the Heifer Foundation, in celebration of Elizabeth's!!! Here's to less stuff and more hope.

Gift of a goat: $120 
Share of a goat: $10

With all the money donated to help fight famine around the world, with all the grandiose plans conceived to conquer poverty, sometimes all it takes to save a child is a goat.

ps. Couldn't have said it any better than Claire today. 

Happy Birthday, sweet Elizabeth!
