Anna


Happy 15th Birthday!



Exactly one week after Ivan's birthday, Anna celebrates her's! To keep up this year's tradition, here are 15 random facts about Anna:

- Mom's shortest labor..."hit the ground running!"
- didn't meet a stranger until age 10 [smile]
- at 3 years old, she cut her bangs extremely short (in an attempt to look like a guy she liked!)
- always wanted to be name Kelly...as a little girl she thought this name sounded so grownup
- quoted all of Psalm 23 at two years old (yes, our Mom is amazing!)
- enjoys babysitting
- a few years ago (before Ivan came of age!) sang at the top of her lungs while mowing
- once desired to get hurt bad enough just for the chance of a hospital visit
- very competitive (let the firstborn win!...never!)
- the "pink nail painter" according to Alanna
- would love to be a professional photographer
- continual right hand service to many individuals [smile]
- singing harmony comes naturally for her
- great at cardmaking and painting
- dream "vacation" is Haiti


I can't imagine life without my sister who feels like a twin. Through the past fifteen years, hundreds of memories have accumulated, and how special it's been to have a sister right under me! Growing up together has totally been a blast!

We love you, Anna!

In all thy ways acknowledge Him and he shall direct thy paths."
