Reason to Celebrate…

Stella Closseup CR

I had a birthday on Friday.

I love birthdays.

Birthdays are full of traditions at our house.

We always get…

Breakfast in Bed

I had skinny pancakes, and a special egg from my dad. 

My dad makes the best eggs.

After breakfast, I got to put on my new dress.

My mom always makes me something neat to wear on my special day.

We take to time to snap a few photos.

My mom says she wants to remember me on this day.

I love to have my picture taken.

Laugh 2 CR

I woke up to all these decorations in the house.  It made me feel so special.

I am six now you know.  I will start kindergarten in just a few weeks.

My mom says that I am not allowed to go, and that I can’t grow up.

I just laugh.

After my photo shoot, we went to Cold Stone for lunch.

It is tradition to have ice cream for lunch.

My daddy even got to meet us there.

Elizabeth Grace my new bunny got to come along.

She is part of my present.

The day before my birthday, I went to:

Stella's Birthday

Build a bear.

I love my rabbit so much, that I sleep with her, and take her everywhere I go; including out for ice cream.

When we got home from lunch; my mom made my cake and got the table all ready.

We always have a very special birthday dinner.

My mom made my favorite; homemade mac and cheese.

I helped her decorate my cake.

I wanted a pink butterfly this year.

After a very special dinner…

It was finally time for presents.

You will never guess what I got.

New Camera CR

Yep, my very own camera.

Presents

I was so surprised.

I think I take after my mom, because I love taking pictures.

Then it was time to…

Make a wish

I had the best day.

Birthdays are the best at my house.

It is so important to my parents that I know why we celebrate.

We celebrate because I am special, and a very important part of my family.

…and that is reason to celebrate.

Ok, so I've decided that in about 10 years, I'm totally making Ian ask Stella out on a date! I think they'd make a cute couple;)

I've figured it out! Jane's eyes are the same color as Stella's....light blue/grey with a dark ring around the outside! Glad Stella had a good day!
