I'm sure it's getting a little old hearing about Anna-Kate's birthday! I have never put anything up on what she's doing, like I do with Thomas.
She is not really a picky eater. Her favorite food is probably broccoli. She loves pretty much everything. I try to encourage her to at least try everything on her plate. She is a little stubborn with that but still eats pretty good. Usually it's in spurts where she eats a ton for a few days and then she goes through another spurt where she doesn't hardly eat for a few days. She will never turn down chocolate though! She absolutely loves it!
She loves to "call" her friends and tell them about her day. She will call her "best friends" Ben, Kristen or sometimes her imaginary best friend. Yes- she has an imaginary friend! Anna-Kate usually calls her "Kate-Kate" which is actually Ben's nickname for her! Haha! Last week, we were shopping for Derek's birthday present. He wanted a particular book and I was searching high and low for it. Anna-Kate asked for my phone "to play games" on it. I handed it over and didn't think much about it. A few minutes later I heard, "hi daddy, we are looking for your book. Mommy can't find it!" I looked at the phone and she had CALLED Derek and put him on speaker phone to tell him what we were doing! She then told him about the rest of the gifts we had gotten him!
I guess I know she can't keep a secret now! She gets that from Derek! :)
She is such a joy in our lives. I love how sweet and caring she is and how that balances with her spunky and playful side. She loves to joke around. In fact, one of her new favorite phrases is "I'm just kidding!"
This is such a fun age, even though it comes along with some of it's own frustrations and "growing pains", there are so many laughs and sweet moments!

When they get to school, they pick out their name and put it on the bookshelf!
Here she is with her teacher, Mrs. Penny! So excited!
(a short bit because I'm out of shape!) and then we went home so Thomas could take a nap! He ended up sleeping about 3 hours. It was such a quiet morning that I decided to take a short nap too!

It's hard to see, but Derek is in the row behind all the guys with the "bare" heads. He's sitting next to a girl with long hair.
Finally a picture of me and Thomas! It's hard being the one who takes all the pictures!
Walking out! Derek is the last graduate you can see. He's walking right next to the seats. Derek said walking in and out was his favorite part. I didn't get a picture of him walking in, so here you go Derek!
It's about time we had a family picture!
So proud of you!!
This has to be one of my favorite pictures of our family!!
