Happy Fathers Day, daddy!! You are the BEST daddy a girl could ask for. Thanks for loving me so much, and taking such good care of me. I love you with all my heart, and I'll always be your little princess. Love, Anika

Did I mention that Anika was spoiled by her Aunt Nicole and Uncle Scott when they were here? :) We were at Ikea, and they couldn't resist gifting Anika a super cute stuffed elephant we saw there. Uncle Scott cleverly dubbed her "Ellie". Ellie is bigger than Anika is. It is SO cute to see her play with Ellie. She can't get enough of her! I think our girl has a new best friend!

Kisses for Ellie... :)

Thank-you SO much Aunt Nicole and Uncle Scott!!

Uncle Scott and Aunt Nicole!

Anika FINALLY got to meet her Uncle Scott and Aunt Nicole. They came to visit for a few days last week. It was definitely worth the wait!! Anika had a BLAST!!! It was a jam-packed visit complete with a trip to Multnomah Falls, Cannon Beach, and the Oregon Zoo. (Unfortunately, all of the photos from those adventures ended up on Uncle Scott and Aunt Nicole's camera, so I will try to post them once I get some copies...hint, hint. :) :) ) She has never laughed so hard...between Uncle Scott's funny antics and Aunt Nicole's songs Anika had the time of her life. She just LOVES her aunt and uncle and already misses them! Thanks for coming! Can't wait to see you again! We missed you Uncle Randy, Aunt Nicole, and cousin Greta!
Wow. The last few weeks have been extremely busy here in the Vos home. The most exciting happening was on June 8 when we had our court appointment to finalize Anika's adoption. What a great day!

Checking out the paperwork that declares her our daughter forever! Pretty cool!

Grandma Faw and Auntie Shelley were there for the big day, too!

We love you more each day, Anika Grace Vos, and are thrilled God has blessed us with you as our daughter!
