The Annas

This morning Anna's friend Anna -- yeah, confusing, I know -- came over bright and early to play. My lazy child was still in her favorite new hippo pjs. Anyways, I left them alone for 2 second and Anna #2 (who happens to be exactly one week younger than my Anna) got into the Goldfish and decided to share the wealth. As soon as I came back into the room, they both shot me knowing little malicious smiles.
The Annas play so nicely together, it makes me want to ask if Anna #2 can move in permanently. My Anna is so much happier with a friend around and I feel like I can get a ton of stuff done when she's distracted. She should have been a twin. Hm, who does THAT sound like?
As you can see, Anna #2's visit inspired a new hairstyle for Anna #1. I personally think the double stick out ponytails are a good look...

...I'm not sure Anna agrees. She kept looking at me all day like, "Seriously?"

Free Balloom

For those of you who don't know already, our "nice car" (2003 Explorer) was totalled in a car accident two weeks ago, so we had to buy a new one. Josh talked me into a minivan. I actually cried for about five minutes when he first suggested it, but quickly came to grips with the fact that I'm not 17 anymore and was able to move forward with the purchase. To be honest, I kind of love the new ride. It's all shiney and spacious... and it's a Honda! What really sold us was the free balloon that came with any $30,000 purchase. The other bonus is that we get to keep my 1996 Accord with 163,000 glorious miles on it. We were planning to get rid of that one first, but we just can't seem to shake that car no matter how hard we try! Anna's been having fun with her big red balloon and has been all giddy whenever we get in the minivan saying, "New car, new car, new car" over and over. So, here's a pic of Anna with her bonus balloon and one of the new hair styles we've been trying out to keep her staticy mess under control. I also thought I'd throw in this cute photo of Anna passed out after church. Not much has changed in the last year with respect to how hard she parties in Sunday School.
