Bella's 4th Birthday

What a great birthday celebration we had for Bella. She had her friend birthday at her gymnastics center and it was a Nightmare Before Christmas birthday party. As weird as it is, Bella is in love with this movie and constantly sings the songs from the movie. When I asked her what birthday party she wanted, she was very firm on that she wanted to have a "Jack" birthday party. We were so lucky that Bella's coach, Coach Janet, volunteered to host Bella's birthday party. We had such a great time. We also had a family birthday party for her at Rain Forest Cafe.

Favorite Color: Pink and Blue
Favorite Foods: Strawberries, mini pancakes, Boost drinks, Cliff Bars, ham sandwiches, cantaloupes, and anything with chocolate.
Favorite Activities: Gymnastics, preschool, dance, and playing with her toys.
Favorite Movies: Nightmare Before Christmas, Tangled, Aladdin, and Bolt.
Favorite Shows: Dora, Bubble Guppies, and Backyardigans.
Favorite Trip: To Disneyland and especially visiting Jack Skellington's home at the Haunted Mansion.
Big Accomplishments: Started preschool, asked to be on Team Pawesomes for gymnastics, moved to Dallas, and she can spell her name.
Favorite Books: Splat the Cat series, Fancy Nancy, and Pinkalicious series.

Bella is such a sweet and loving little girl. She loves animals and loves to play with Jinxy. She loves to color and ride her bike. She is quick to make us laugh and is always there to give you a hug when you are sad. We are so grateful to have Bella and look forward to watching her grow up.
