Merry Christmas 2017: Guest Post by Ellie Benfield



Hi Daddy's followers!

One of my favorite Christmas sayings has always been: Jesus is the reason for the season.

It's sweet, it rhymes, and there is so much meaning behind it. December, to me, is the time for celebrating Jesus' birthday, hanging out with family and appreciating all of the things we take for granted everyday (AND Star Wars marathons ;)). So, I would like to take a minute and talk about a few of the things I am thankful for.

1) My mama and daddy. I am so blessed to have y'all as parents because you care about me and support me no matter what! Thanks for being my built in, lifelong best friends and exposing me to the BEST music.

2) My beautiful (inside and out), silly little sister, Cece. Thank you for being my fave little princess and teaching me to love without words.

3) And best of all... Jesus. You are my savior, who loves me unconditionally and I thank you for that more than anything ever.


   



Cece, you are the absolute sweetest.





I love this bracelet from my dad with the autism puzzle piece charm.

Merry Christmas,
