libee bear has a pink bow.

david and delana went to vermont a couple weeks ago, and brought ellie back a really great present.

in vermont they have a teddy bear factory where you can pick out the bear's fur, her heart (and make a wish on it), her clothes, her name, etc...

david picked a blond-colored bear with a pink bow on the top of her head. he made a wish on her heart, but he won't tell us what he wished. he named her libee - one of the many shortened versions of elizabeth. sweet huh?

the best part is you can pick what the bear is filled with. there's hope, joy, giggles, smiles and happiness among other things.

but david chose imagination. first he told us he picked imagination because ellie was going to have the best parents she could imagine. and then he said, quoting ephesians 3:20, "i picked imagination because the Lord said He could do exceedingly abundantly above all we could ever ask or imagine."

we cried.
