Annika is pretty excited to announce that she will have a brother or sister.  If you ask her if she wants a brother or sister, the answer is usually brother.  If you ask her what we should name him/her, the answer is always the same.  Two.  So, look for two towards the end of October.

Easter Morning

A couple of weeks ago I tried to take Annika to see the Easter Bunny.  She became very scared and wanted nothing to do with him.  So yesterday when I mentioned the Easter Bunny was coming to the house to bring her presents, she did not like that idea.  That all changed this morning when she saw her basket and began looking for the eggs.  She loved every minute of it.  She loved it even more when she realized there was candy in the eggs.  Pretty great morning!

Easter Eggs

We decided to let Annika dye eggs again this year and she loved it!  I wasn't sure how she would do.  Last year she was not sure what to do, and made a HUGE mess.  You can look at that here.  So we were a little more prepared this year.  She still made a little bit of a mess, but that was part of the fun.  After the first couple of eggs she really got what she was supposed to do and seemed to really enjoy herself.  Until the last egg.  When she put it in the dye, it splashed up and got all over her face.  Derek and I thought it was pretty funny.  Annika did not.  Fortunately, her being upset didn't last long and she was asking for more eggs.
