Happy Birthday Annika ~

You're so special ~ oh so special ~ God gave you to us!
It's no wonder that we LOVE you so!

Holy buckets, Daddy and I cannot believe you are 7 years old!
It seems like only yesterday that I called Daddy at work to tell him that #5 was on his or her way.
The day you arrived was a cloudy spring day.  I was helping in Michaela's classroom, listening to her classmates read when I realized I had better head home.  
Maybe that's why you like to read so much! 
You arrived a smidgen before 10:00 pm, just in time for Daddy to make a Wendy's run. 
And that's how you still are, always accommodating.  If someone doesn't want to play a specific game, you are perfectly content to join in whatever they are playing.  
You have been a bit spoiled by your older sisters; they love dressing you up and treating you like a little princess. 
Despite being sandwiched between four boys, it isn't that rough!  The two younger ones love you like a little "mother," and the two older ones (when they aren't teasing you) tell you how beautiful you are!  

Make a wish !

Annika's favorite thing ~ parties with just the girls.

Reading to Nickles.  
She doesn't care whether he listens well or not!
