Bella and I took another trip to Columbus last weekend to see my family. Aunt Lenore and Uncle Joe stopped in on Friday to visit. We had a great time! Bella was plenty of entertainment for us all! My great friend Brooks Herring gave Bella a bubble bucket a few weeks back and I've been saving it for a "rainy" day. Well, Friday was great time being that Aunt Noe had her camera! ;) Bella got a kick out of the bubbles and I loved actually being behind it for once! Thanks Aunt Noe for the pictures and to Mom for all the goodies this weekend! We love you all! OH PLEASE NOTICE MY MOM HAS RETIRED AND IS MAKING CLOTHES FOR BELLA!! YAY.. I LOVE RETIREMENT!
Last Saturday, July 26th was 3 year anniversary of my Dad's death! Man, I can't believe it's been 3 years! Some days feels so much longer than others. He truly was the great man. So full of life, family and Jesus Christ. As I think of all the great times we had together my most missed memory would be riding around in his silly "tracker" when I would come home from college or NYC listening to "oldies but goodies" (as he would say). Nothing beats those great talks! As I watch Bella grow, I think of how awesome of a grandfather he would have been and I'm reminded of what great standards he set for me! I hope the man that I one day marry will be half the man he was! This picture was taken on his last Relay for Life! He was so sick that day.. yet still managed to walk half the track a lone.. I would like to say on that day he took his victory walk! As sad as I get thinking of him being gone, I am even more grateful that he is in a place of pure delight with NO PAIN and PLENTY OF VICTORY WALKS!! :)

Here are some random pictures I have taken of B lately that I think are cute! She makes me laugh so much! Some things she loves these days are:
Coloring,DANCING, singing, Dora the Explorer, playing in my makeup, her baby dolls, Cadie,coloring on MY WALLS and HERSELF, putting on jewelry and of course being outside! She can be such a girly girl and then end up in a pile of dirt the next minute.. she keeps me on my toes! I love it!
FYI: THANKS TO MRS. GINGER BENSON FOR THE CUTE PINK HATS FOR B AND I AS WELL AS A PAIR OF STEMLESS WINE GLASSES FROM WATER COLOR FOR MOMMY!! WE LOVE YOU!!

Bella and I have been spending a lot of time lately with Harper and Brooks. Brooks is one of my closets friends however it seems between our 2 busy lives with babies we can never get on the same schedule! Harper is almost 13 months and you would think he was Bella's age! He is the same height and weight as Bella and so smart! They really play well together and its fun for Brooks and I to get to see each other too! Brooks is expecting a sweet little girl, Julia soon and I can't wait! We are so excited!

Bella spent the weekend with NaNu (my mom) in Columbus so I could go to the beach with my great friend Annelise. We had so much fun on our girls trip, however I think Bella had more fun! She loves my Mom!! Its probably because she gets spoiled and my Mom showers her with great food, kisses and lots of outdoor fun!
Ms. Robin Creegen stopped in one day with the girls to see Bella and got some cute shots of her! Apparently Bella loves the camera now because all you have to do is say.. CHEESE and she gives a huge over size smile! I LOVE IT!
Paul, my Mom's husband was also working outside this weekend and Bella seemed to jump in and help! Mom said it was super cute and she was a big hand.. (A.K.A I'm sure she was in the way!) However, the pictures were sweet!
