Seventh Heaven

For Bella's 7th birthday, we took an exciting trip to "Heath Island." We took a plan ride (refreshments included) and then we went down to the magical island. They, of course, had a limbo contest, dug for treasures, played musical island leaves, and lots of other fun things. We had so much fun. She was so excited to get a fish at her party. She named her Dorothy.

Ivy, Alexis Caudell, Syndee Franks, Alyssa Smith, Bella, and Mr Tyler Moon. (What a trooper being with all those girls.)

The morning of Bella's birthday, she was so excited to open her presents that she hopped in bed with us to open them first thing. She got some hunting clothes (which she had to use that day),
some money, a DS game- Lego's Star Wars, and a few other fun things.

Halloween 2011

My kids were adorable this year. Bella was a dog (thank goodness cause it was so cold out there.) She actually got a Tangled costume (since she cut her hair like Rapunzel) but it was just too cold. Bella was Princess Lea. She was awesome. She loves Star Wars- that's my girl.

A bunch of us went and walked downtown and went trick or treating in the morning... then we went to the church Trunk or Treat. And if they didn't get ENOUGH candy... we went to the school's Trunk or Treat (but that was kind of a bust) :)

Big Buddies

Bella's 1st grade teacher is amazing and does so many fun things with the kids. She invites a 6th grade class to their school and each kid is given a BIG BUDDY. They have the same buddy all year long. Bella's is Cole. He is so sweet and quiet like Bella... I'm so thankful for the time and effort that was put into this program. They do so many fun things together each month and look forward to seeing what else they have planned.
