Happy Birthday Bella June!

Chocolate Cake!

Donuts and Mickey Mouse Club House to start a girls Birthday!

I wonder when I will not feel sappy and emotional on Bella's birthday! I know everyone said the time will go by so fast but where is the stop button I cannot believe my baby is 2! Since her birthday is December 23rd i am each year so mindful of Mary I mean can you imagine giving birth in a stable a STABLE not a plush room at Lakeside Women's Hospital with room service and nurses. A STABLE full of stinky animals-what a gift the birth of our Savior and I am so thankful for that gift! Many of times I have felt sorry for Bella having a birthday so close to Christmas then I am reminded of the greatest gift in our Savior that I quickly cry and become so overwhelmed with grace and thankfulness.

Bella at 2 you are full of life, BUSY beyond imagination, independent, strong willed, smart, funny, and BEAUTIFUL! You are our greatest blessing and it is joy and honor to be your parents. We love you so much and pray every day for wisdom in raising you and pray that you know and love the Savior whose birthday you almost share! Here are a few pics from our day today! Happy 2ND Birthday Bella June and here is to many more! WE LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK!

Since Boo's birthday is December 23rd we celebrated early on Nov. 1st with a great fall party at Parkhurst Pumpkin Patch. We had a hayride, pony rides, roasted hot dogs and smores and enjoyed a prefect Oklahoma Fall day while celebrating our Bella! Here is the day in pictures!

Bella started Mother's Day Out on Tuesday and Thursday last week! We are so blessed she is loving it, she is so social ( wonder where she gets that from) and active that I think it is a prefect fit. She has two of the most precious teachers and they adore her makes me smile every time we get there and she is racing to get to her class! I am also loving the time each week to get so much done! We both love it! Crossings Community Church continues to be such a blessing in our lives in so many ways!

Bella's Got Bling!!!

Josh has wanted Bella's ears pierced for a long time and I did too I am just a baby and did not want to do it! So on Sunday Daddy was brave and took her while Mommy waited outside the store! She looks so big and is even MORE cute than she already was! Thanks Daddy for my diamonds you Rock!

Checking out the loot from the Easter Bunny

WOW Cool stuff EB!

We had such a blessed and amazing Easter Sunday. We hosted it at our house and had the blessing of having Josh's mom and dad and his grandparents, my parents, my sister and her family, my grandmother and my great aunt! It was a full house and I would have not had it any other way! We enjoyed a great meal, several ATV rides ( even my grandmother went on one!), and of course an egg hunt. My only disappointment is I was a terrible photographer and got very few pictures! We are blessed people to serve a Savior who loves us enough to die for us and rise again! Thanks for a great reason to celebrate with our amazing family!
