My girlie girl is 5 years old today! We've been celebrating for a few days already with her friend birthday party and going out to dinner with Grandma and Grandpa, so today was just a cap on all those great parties. We opened some gifts, played with toys, and after Lee got home from school I took the kids to the movie theater by special Annalisa request. We'll have more dessert tonight after a bath and jammies.
Anna is such a special girl and we love having her as part of our family. She's always willing to help out and is the best at picking up the house of any kid in the family. She loves art and singing songs and pretend play. She has lots of best friends and loves getting to play with them whenever she gets the chance. Her language skills are quite refined and she is learning to write her letters well. She can't wait for preschool to start next week. She has promised us that now that she is five she will no longer be scared of flu shots or the plastic skeletons in the Halloween aisle of the grocery store. Happy birthday to our big girl, Annalisa!
