owls, tea, pink, frills… Anna’s 6th birthday!

On Monday we had just a few of Anna’s little friends over for a quaint, dainty and perfectly pink tea party. One of the perks of homeschooling is that we aren’t tied down to just having parties on the weekends. It ended up working out really well to have the party on a Monday (especially in December when, it seems like, every weekend (for everyone) is booked solid months in advance.) Anna was thrilled to be surrounded by her sweet friends… and was full of squeals and glee for days leading up to the event.

Micah woke up with a “bee in his bonnet” on Monday. He was dead set on it being HIS birthday and HIS party!!! How do I know? He kept saying… “MY PARTY! MY BIRFDAY!MOMMY!” (He’s not subtle.)  I was trying to get a picture of Anna and he kept standing next to her saying “Twake my pictwure MOMMY! Twake my pwicture!” Anna’s look is pretty typical of her. Can’t you just see the hint of annoyance in her expression? “Brothers…. hmph!”

This little doll has been taking a two year nap in my closet since they retired the Elizabeth doll in 2010. Well Monday was the day for Elizabeth the doll to meet Anna Elizabeth! I think Anna was pleased. Smile

What a beautiful little lady you are, our Anna. Six years old seems to be an impossible thought and yet it is reality. You are, indeed, 6! You are in Kindergarten! You are a little lady! You are a blessing!

I remember well holding you in my arms as we watched the Christmas lights on the boats and houses outside of our hospital window the day you were born… a very dear memory.

We love you, Anna. God has given you a sensitive spirit, a mind full of  deep and sincere thoughts and ponderings. You have the ability to observe and then discern and the Lord has ,most definitely, given you  a heart that delights in relationship and time with others.  Your squeals of excitement and love of laughter bring joy to our home.

Happy 6th birthday Anna Elizabeth.
