A "Bella" Kind of a Day!

Ironically, and yet appropriate-, today was the prettiest, warmest day we've had so far this year! Ironic, because it was also my little friend and former neighbor, Bella's 5th Birthday! Her party was delightful,,,,,,,,and full of good natured children, friends and family! Here she is, in the Birthday Crown I made her,,,,,

This photo is Perfect! Bella stepping out of the house, posing for her friends and family (look at the pose!)--a BIT hesitant,,,,,,,and yet, self-assured. . . I think she got that from her Mamma.....the former Paegant Winner..........Her Mamma WAS there,,,,,,whispering in her ear- to stand "just so." To anticipate her audience.......Make and entrance,,,,,,,,and she did! I smiled and choked on the Tears......This was a Jana moment too!

I Love you Bella Girl! Happy 5!

Create your OWN Cupcake Masterpieces...........Too cute, Bella spent a good deal of time creating One of a Kind Cupcake creations and then? Delivering them to others........(her little BF delivered a Creation to Moi).........BF's are the BEST at Any age!
(Mini Cupcakes provided by "Simply Sweet" Cupcakes here in Snohomish! Yummm!)

Cupcake Design is serious Stuff!.......

Bob and Bella
Blowin' out the BIG Cake Candle......
Ya think these kids were "Jacked Up" on Sugar or Whatta?

Matching Aprons from Sondi.........
I Love this image for SO many reasons!

Thanks to Auntie for All of your efforts, for Dad Bob for manning the Grill....
For all the kids that were SO well mannered and fun to watch!
It was a FUN afternoon!

I type this with tears in my eyes and both happiness and sadness in my heart. Bella's Mommy should have been there......the Elephant in the room, if you will. But, I know, actually she WAS/IS with us all,,,
,,,,in heart and spirit.

Happy Birthday Beautiful Bella
(You can't read this yet,,,,,,but know........We all love you, support you and know that the energenic angel laughing and smiling that sits on all  our various shoulders at times,,,,your sweet mom, guides us along the path to help you Grow!)

Happy "Bella" Day! Hugs love and a "Cupcakey/Princess" Bus on the Cheek!

  3. Oh, Shell,
    So sweet. So sad. So dear. Love Bella. Love her dad who is still being a dad. Love you for having such a huge heart and help celebrating Bella's fifth birthday. Sometimes it takes a village. I think this is one of those times.
