Happy Birthday Anna!

This is a little late in coming since Anna's birthday was almost a month ago, but our little girl is finally 4! Anna is a little chatter box these days and loves anything "tiny". She's constantly holding something small in her hand and incessantly looking for a rock, a tiny part of one of her toys, or anything small to play with. Anna is girly as a girl can get in most respects, but does enjoy getting down and dirty out in the backyard! Her favorite color is pink and she loves all animals, with a particular love for monkeys, including her favorite stuffed animal, "Monk".

My brother returned home from Italy for a 2 month stay on her birthday this year. He stopped by our house on his way to my parents and everyone met here to celebrate the birthday of my parents' only granddaughter. There was ice cream and cake (with some "tiny" toys on it that she loves to play with). We haven't gotten around to it, but will be having a family party on Matt's side as soon as we can get everyone together!

Here are some photos from Anna over the years for you to enjoy :)
