Happy Birthday, Priscilla!

Happy 17th Birthday, Priscilla!

Priscilla's name means "Ancient one, oldfashioned"
She was born on her due date :)

She's the only sibling in the family with blue eyes.

Priscilla has been working on her photo album for that special day, hopefully next spring, when she can graduate.  We've been having fun looking at old pictures and reading about things she did when she was young.  Here's some things I wrote about her back then:

At one and a half she loved to jump on the trampoline.  We had one screen window that was ripped and she would crawl through it to get to the trampoline whenever we weren't watching.

When she first started talking she said a lot of funny things - way more than the others:
She wanted us to have a new baby. She said, "We could buy one at the store.  Maybe we could buy the Heppner's baby."
At four she told me she would like a ring, bracelet, earrings and necklace to wear to church.  "Everyone would look at me and I would be so gorgeous." (Now where did that come from?!)

At three years old she knew some books so well she could "read" them. Silas would get so mad when she'd miss a word.

She liked to talk about eating wild animals:
When the boys killed a skunk she wanted to eat it.
When they set a mouse trap she said "Then we can eat the mouse.  It will be good."
We ate fajitas one day made from venison, she said, "It tastes like eagle meat." (No, we don't eat eagle meat!)

Today Priscilla is a lovely young lady.  She has a heart to serve God especially in the area of evangelism.
She loves to write and just finished the rough draft of the third book in her trilogy. (Someday we'll tell about it!)
Priscilla is a night person, often writing until late in the night and then sleeping really, really late.

Priscilla loves playing hockey, baking, hunting, visiting with friends, watching Ray Comfort video clips, and doing embroidery.

We love you, Priscilla, and hope you have a wonderful golden birthday!
