Birthday Day!

Yup, today is Anna's 10th birthday!  No denying it, no matter how hard I try to make them stay little they keep getting bigger!  After school (and homework) today we gave Anna the gifts from us.  It was a warm (86!!)!  
 The boys gave her gifts from their things too.  Super sweet!

 Her "big" gift from us was all the gear she would need to compete in a walk trot event later this year.  She has come such a long way in her horseback riding lessons! 
 She chose a ham with home made macaroni and cheese casserole, of course followed up by more chocolate cake with strawberry frosting! 

And now for the silly questions I have been asking all the kids on their birthday.  The current year answers are first, then 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, and 2013 answers.

Favorite place to go:  (I forgot to ask!!!) (

How old will you be when you grow up:  20 because she won't be a teenager anymore (25, 20, 53, 34 - Same age as Mom, 16)
How old will you be when you get married:  22 like mom (she didn't have an answer and wasn't sure if she would, 30, 20, 20, 17 - and she said she would marry Mason)
How old will you be when you have a baby:  she isn't sure that she will (30 if she gets married, 35, 25, 40, she said she didn't know if she would have a baby)
She is 4' 6.5" and Mason is about 1" away.  She somehow keeps growing enough to stay taller than him.  

Hard to believe our baby girl is now 10!  Life has taken us on many adventures over the years, but how those adventure have shaped us, I wouldn't have it any other way!

Keep on being you Anna!  We love you to the moon and back!

Movie in the House!

To celebrate Anna's birthday with family we decided showing a movie would be a fun way to celebrate, and a special treat!  After a pizza dinner, the movie Mrs. Doubtfire was started.  Anna had a great time watching the movie that we were showing via a projector so it was giant!  Popcorn and candy too of course!  
 A yummy chocolate cake with strawberry frosting for all that wanted some!
 Make a wish!  (And yes, she got all 10 candles out in one blow!)
 After the movie was over an others had left, Anna opened her gifts from family.  She enjoyed all of them!
