A Morning with Princesses & Fairies

For Bella's 3rd b-day we took her to see some special friends.
She was extremely shy.

Then she saw Minnie mouse and warmed up.

Then when Tinkerbell called her Tinkerbella
they became instant friends.

She gave her a hug

and stood by her all by herself!

Bella's Birthday Party

hApPy BiRtHdAY!

When I pulled this picture out of Bella
at her 1st birthday party, I cried.
My baby is 3!

mini cupcakes

Birthday buddies- Sydney & Easton

Bella needed no help this year opening her presents!

I love this picture of Easton-
"Get this thing off my head!"

I made a hat just for Jason - haha

once Bella opened this gift she was done with all the rest.

It doesn't look like it but she is blowing the candles out.


We had a great time!
Thanks everyone for coming!

Beach Buddies

Bella and Sydney had a fabulous
time at the beach together!

Hand in hand these girls were fearless!

I love their footprints in the sand

Beach babes!

I can't wait for Bella to have a sibling
she struggled with sharing this chair with Camille.

Her face say's it all

It was really funny because later Camille
came over and plopped right down on Bella's lap.
Bella was like "what?"
It was good practice for what is to come:)

it's a small world after all

My heart melt watching my daughters excitement.
The simple joys of Disneyland

It is official, there really is a baby in growing in my stomach. We finally heard the baby's heart beat. There really is a good excuse for the gut I am getting. (I hate this stage where you just feel fat not pregnant.) It seems a little more real to me, but just a little. I think when I find out if it is a boy or girl and actually see it for myself, that might help it seem real?. The shopping always gets me really excited! Boy or Girl? In the beginning I wanted another girl but I will take either! I just want a healthy baby.

Sea World

Bella did not like the Shamu show.
She cried and hide behind grandma.

Waiting in line for Atlantis.

Brock, Aaron, Brandon, & Heather. (or Heaven, that is what Bella called Heather)

My favorite, the dolphin show.

Grandma Nakken and Bella Boo

Bella and Uncle Aaron
(who had to get stitches well he was out here)

of course a little fun in the sun and sand
although there wasn't much sun
