Happy 5th Birthday, Annika!

Our baby girl tuned 5 on New Years Eve. *sniff*

Annika requested pancakes for breakfast, and we had another favorite, hot dogs, for lunch.


We celebrated with friends at our church's Funzone. Annika had a BLAST! It is the perfect place for a 5 year-old's birthday!

We had cake, fruit, cheese ball and summer sausage. Annika requested "COKE" to drink. (Remember the World of Coke from last June?)

Thank-you all who helped us celebrate Annika's special day and for all of the happy birthday wishes that were sent!

After much partying and cleaning up, Annika opened more presents at home and had Little Ceasar's pizza with added soy cheese for dinner.


We all went to bed early.

Happy New Year!

happy birthday, Annika! Five seems like a biggie to me (but I'm just a sappy mom). Eli's birthday is tomorrow and I WISH we had somewhere wonderful to go. Alas, it will be a passle of boys running amuck inside my flood ravaged house. Should be fun. Winter birthday parties are so hard!
much love,
apryl
