A few extra!!

Stella Ross is 4!

I cannot believe my BABY girl is 4 years old.  We started our celebration on her birthday eve with a trip to Club Tabby for a make-over.  Stella Ross LOVED it.  It was so much fun and Stella Ross was so excited (especially with the make-up!).  Then we had lunch at her favorite restaurant, Logan's.

On her 4th birthday, Christmas, Day, we celebrated at home with more presents and a puppy dog cake. We had a fun time celebrating this special girl who makes every party more fun and brings SO MUCH sunshine to our family.  

Here are some things I want to remember about Stella Ross on her 4th birthday:

  • Favorite food - BUTTER, any fruit, broccoli, scrambled eggs, enchiladas, cake, ice cream
  • wants to be a Veterinarian when she grows up
  • LOVES stuffed animals, but sadly not baby dolls :(
  • favorite past time is singing and dancing.  She knows EVERY word to EVERY Top 40 song down to the Itsy Bitsy Spider.  She especially loves her microphone and disco ball
  • will share anything she has, especially with her big brother.  She adores Rafe!
  • loves to cook
  • enjoys taking care of Garfield, Bowser and the puppies
  • has a heart made of gold 

Stella Ross we love you SO MUCH and are so proud of you!!  Always follow your heart.  It is one of a kind!!!!

The BIG gift!

We have been giving Stella Ross and Rafe hints as to what we were getting them for their Christmas gift but neither one of them EVER imagined it would be a trampoline!!  They could not WAIT for their Daddy (with the FLU!) to put it together.  Once it was completed they jumped and jumped and jumped.  This is a dream come true for Rafe.  He may never come inside again!

Christmas 2013

 We had an unbelievably wonderful Christmas!  I have NEVER seen two children more excited and anticipating Christmas morning.  In fact, Rafe woke up at 4:00 Christmas morning ready to see what Santa Claus brought.  We did manage to hold him off until we woke his sister up at 6:30 then it was a race down the stairs to see.  Rafe has been waiting and waiting for Beats by Dre headphones and Santa delivered.  Stella Ross has been anticipating an easy bake oven and we baked and baked Christmas day.  Thank you, Santa, for making these children BEYOND happy!!
