Anna is still extremely shy for the most party, but she now attends pre-school every day and goes all day on Friday. She is growing up so fast. She will undoubtedly always hold a special place in my heart, not only as the first grandchild, but she's just a pretty cool little girl. I can still remember when she was born. It will likely be one of my favorite moments of life (and another reason I am so glad I have this blog - so I can recall things like this).
DrewCarrie had a party at their house with family from all sides. Carrie made her a splendid pink cake. We got her a game (chutes & ladders), and Jane made her this sleeping bag type thing that's a mermaid tail. Apparently Anna saw one somewhere and Jane thought it would be easy enough to just make. I'd say Jane's was way better than the one in the store. I think Anna liked it.
So, it was a good day. Here are a few pics from over the years.
|Always one of my favorites: getting ready to leave the hospital.|

|Perhaps her highlight of the year: getting a kitty.|
