Hello friends

life update April 27 Bella turned 12

 

As you may have notice my website has a new look and feel and I can actually blog directly from my phone now. I am so excited to share about how great Bellas bday went this year. 

Bella wanted to see Avengers EndGame and go to Applebees for dinner that is what we did.

Bella shared brownies with her 5th grade class.

 

Gifts was clothes, graphics novels, Funko pop along with a makeup bag filled with girly nailpolishes, hair accessories and lipglosses

Bella sat still for th entire 3 hours without having to go pee.

I was impressed she went 3 times to the bathroom before we left. 

Bella had a great day and asked me to thank our friends for all of the Happy birthday wishes.
