Eli tells a story

Last night Eliana laid in my bed next to me, took my book and decided to 'read' it to me. Her story is as follows:

"Once upon a time, a boy lived in my house. He played very nicely and ate sandwiches."

She retold the story several times with various additions such that his favorite color was yellow and that his name was, surprise surprise, Eliana (every character in every story she makes up is called Eliana. What a pretty name! I wonder where she got the idea from...)

I love my kids' imaginations!
