For the last two weeks we have tried to convince Anna that she should be four forever. I mean, we'd celebrate her birthday anyway, with presents and cake, but she had to stay four. But today, she turned five anyway.
We had our family party last night so that Megan could be here. Anna picked french fries and nuggets for dinner and sticky rolls for breakfast. And a pink cake, of course. We've had some killer wind storms the last few days and the electricity went out last night just as we were getting ready to sing and blow out candles...perfect.
One of the things that makes our Anna so special is her giving heart. She is a favorite play-date pal, and always is willing to share her toys. She is constantly drawing pictures for those she loves. She shares her treats with her little brother. And just yesterday, her primary teacher told me that their lesson had been on serving others. Anna decided that a way she could serve her family was by letting us open her birthday presents. Yep, the ones she's been dreaming about and staring at for 3 weeks. We declined.
Happy birthday, Princess! May your sixth year be blessed. We love you to infinity and beyond!
