Many years ago, when I visited my dear friend Kaitlin in Idaho, I started becoming good friends with her younger sister, Annika.  Our friendship has since grown and we love being around each other, laughing, talking, playing piano duets, or just spending time.  Today, she is actually my height or taller, so I cannot truthfully call her my DLF (dear little friend) but I will anyways :)  

Here are some pictures of our misadventures over the years :)

Making peanut butter balls, January of 2009.

Annika is keeping an eye on her younger brother Isaac (but didn't catch him in time!) as he snitches some chocolate :)

Swinging together, summer of 2010.

Standing tall with the Statue of Liberty in Sandpoint, not NYC :)

Sharing a joke on a fence, December 2011.

Frolicking on the trampoline, summer 2012.

Ditto :)

A quick nap after the frolic :)

At a dance, summer 2012.  (I might add we both got bangs around the same time :)

Annika is brilliant at....
-managing children
-shopping wisely :)
-giving strong hugs
-quoting silly movies
-being my fellow "eggless it" :D  (neither one of us can eat eggs)

Thanks for the years of laughing uncontrollably, cooking, cleaning, bouncing, swinging friendship, Annika!
I love and miss you bunches!

What True Prayer Is

"Prayer is a sincere, sensible, affectionate pouring out of the heart or soul to God, through Christ, in the strength and assistance of the Holy Spirit, for such things as God has promised or according to His Word, for the good of the Church, with submission in faith to the will of God."
-John Bunyan
