Bella's 4th Birthday Celebration

 Bella's birthday was a lovely day!  I made a few little decorations for the house so it would really feel like a party!  :)  I hung balloons from the ceiling, and made tissue paper pom poms.  Bells loved them!  Her birthday cake request was a "ballerina princess pink cake."  So I searched Pinterest and saw a few things that I tweaked.  :)  She was thrilled!  I love how easy they are to please at 4.  

 I made Bella a new quilt for her bed.  Since she moved into a twin bed, she hasn't had a quilt to use.  We just pile on the baby size quilts.  She was so excited with this PINK glittery butterfly quilt.  Again, so easy to please.  Now I want one.  :)

 Bella got to go to preschool on her birthday - which is the highlight of Wednesdays and Fridays anyway.  :)  She got a crown, and a whistle from her teacher.  She also took a special treat for her class.  

 I have been selling the last of my baby things on KSL.  I have been looking for either a bench for our table or a new bigger table for our BIG family.  I lucked out when I found this baby Tuesday for $120!!!!  A new oak table with 2 leaves and 6 chairs!!!  We fit SO much better now!  It makes the kitchen feel a little smaller, but we are cozy.  Bella's dinner request was mashed potatoes and gravy on the new table.  :)  
 Then we opened presents!  Here are a few pictures.

 This is her reaction to her new quilt!  She was so excited!

 After each present was unwrapped and EVERY piece of wrapping paper/tape was off of it, the present was neatly stacked in a pile right by Miss B.  She really cracks me up!  

 Now, CAKE!!!

 Bella loved all the cards, calls and texts!   She felt so loved all day!  :)  

Happy Birthday B!!!  Love you Button!
