Annika’s Party Day!
We weren’t sure how many would show, given it’s the Thanksgiving Weekend, but Annika ended up having a great birthday party with lots of her friends, some of whom she doesn’t see all too often. It’s still so surreal to me that we have a 4-year-old and almost-2-year-old. We have so many things to be thankful for – a perfect fit to have Annika’s birthday fall around Thanksgiving Weekend every year. I’m thankful for my family, health and happiness every second of every day.
Off to nana and papa’s house tomorrow for Thanksgiving dinner with uncle Dave and aunt Jenn and to celebrate Annika’s birthday!
