Stella's BirthDAY

Stella turned 4 years old on March 26, 2012.  Since her special day fell on a Monday, she started the day off with our traditional special breakfast in bed and cupcakes at school.  Cheerleader parties were all the rage this year, so she chose a cheerleader cupcake cake to share with her friends, and she and Cille dressed the part.  Here she is at school celebrating with her classmates...
 Make a wish!
We postponed her annual bash until the next weekend and had a quiet celebration at home that afternoon with Mawmaw and Pawpaw.  They picked her up from school and took her for her first mani-pedi.  She absolutely loved it!  (Unfortunately, I forgot to send the camera so there is only this one blurry pic from Damon's phone!)
After she arrived home, it was time to open some presents.  Wait a minute...if the surroundings don't look normal to you, that's because I left out a major change that happened for our family in February.  After lots of prayer we decided that it was time for our family to leave LaPlace and move to Baton Rouge.  We spent February repainting and recarpeting our house, then we moved out of it and put it on the market.  From February to May we were in a rent house on Golfview Drive, a mile or so from our old house.  The girls adjusted really well to the change, and these pictures will give you a glimpse of our time in the rent house...
Stella opened up Play-Doh while Daddy assembled her scooter in the background...
She also got a Cinderella bride dress from Mommy and Daddy, to help her get ready for her gig as Uncle Chad and Aunt Alaina's flower girl...
She danced the night away with Pawpaw...

DIP!!!!
Then it was Daddy's turn...
Finally it was time to put on some jammies and eat some SUGAR!!!
You can never make too many wishes, right?
Cille thoroughly enjoyed the cake...
And so did the birthday girl!


More birthday fun to come!
