hApPy BiRtHdAy BeLLa!!!!

Dear Bella,
I can't believe you're 5 years old today! Where has the time gone? It seems like just yesterday you were 8 weeks old and we moved into Laura's basement. Even in my darkest days, when you were a tiny baby, I would hold you and know that everything was going to be ok.
I am so thankful for you more every day. You teach me so much. Just the other day you told me you knew what the word testimony means, because you have a testimony of Heavenly Father and Jesus. Nothing could make me prouder of you!
Your family loves you so much!
Love, mommy & daddy Breakfast and presents in bed per tradition

*Wish me luck in the next few days. Tonight we are taking all the kids to CPK for dinner and tomorrow Bella is having a birthday party with 11 kids in the gym at the church. I'm really nervous about that for many reasons. The biggest reason is because I really have no idea what the kids are going to do besides a pinata and cake and gift bags we made. So if you have any ideas for 5 year old party (boys are invited too) please let me know.

Amy, your birthday posts always get me teary...you're such a great mom. Good luck this weekend. The kids will love anything at the party, just do games like red rover, duck duck goose or musical chairs. Five year olds love stuff like that. It will be great.
Happy Birthday Bella!

You ARE a great Mom!! I love your birthday traditions!! I can't believe Bella is FIVE! WOW!!

I was going to suggest the same games as Bevany (above)! A couple other easy favorite are red light/green light & simon says. You could even have them do races. Just keep it simple. Pin the tail on the donkey is always great, too!

Good luck with the party!

My husband saw you at the Fitzone the other day. How long have you been going and are you going to keep going? I just started this month, but have really liked it so far.

Kristen,
Yeah I did see him. A friend of mine has been going there for 6 months and lost a lot of weight. She always talks about it. So I thought I'd try it out this month. But most likely I'll stay at Gold's. I only pay $15 a month and I like that better than $100 a month. I'm still going to go a few more times this month. So I'll look for you.

I love the breakfast in bed off of the Red Plate--we do that too! We used to make our girls wear the birthday hat (a top hat shaped like a b'day cake with candles) but they all refuse to wear it now. Would you like it?
