It's hard to believe that three years ago this little one was born. It was spitting snow outside, determined to be cold and slushy.
The weather wasn't the only 'determined' thing I ran across that day. Anna was born with high expectations and determined to do things differently than her siblings. Oh, and she did.
She still is.
She is such a joy to watch grow up. She still has preconceived ideas of how everything should work and isn't afraid to let you know when things don't come to pass as she has planned. She's spunky and humorous and strong-willed and loving.
For her birthday, she wants 'fwower cake dust wike wast yeawuh and Baby Sophie to come.' And folks, that is just what she is getting: A flower shaped cake and her favorite little friend, Sophie.
And hot chocolate. Because it's cold outside. I think she enjoyed it!
We love you, Anna Joy! Happy 3rd Birthday!!!
