Anna's 3

On Saturday Anna turned three-years-old. She was so very excited. Anna was not excited in the least for her first two parties so this one was definitely fun for everyone.

On Friday Matthew's folks, Oma & Opa, came up from the southwest part of Wisconsin. It was nice to have them up for the weekend. They did a lot of little jobs to help get ready for the party.

Oma and Anna made some cupcakes for the party and Opa helped Matthew hang Anna's birthday banner. Matthew makes a banner for the kids' birthdays every year. Anna stated that she wanted a tractor on her banner so that's what she got. Anna also mentioned how she wanted a hot dog party so that's what we ate.

We had my folks and sister over and some other friends and family over for a hot dog party at lunch time. Anna enjoyed playing with the SIX other little girls that came over. I was very thankful that the weather held out all day for the outside party we intended to have.

We had a super fun weekend and it was just such a thrill to see Anna's pure excitement over everything. She called it her "3 party".

Happy Birthday Tootsie, we sure love ya bunches and bunches.
