La Petite Belle's Anniversaire (French for Birthday)

I've been a busy belle lately.

Today, we celebrated La Petite Belle's eighth birthday at the zoo. What a beautiful morning and day!
Here are a few pics:
La Petite Belle with her good friend, Maddie, and Mama Belle
How many Hannah Montana items can one girl get in one day? Apparently, quite a bit!
Best view of an animal of the day ... I seriously could have reached out and touched his face.
I know all the animals were happy to see us go.

Lunch at an Italian buffet - Pizza is La Petite Belle's favorite food.
La Petite Belle,

You have changed our life. We couldn't imagine it without you. You have truly brought us tremendous joy and made our little family complete. We love you with all our heart.

This is just a peek into her vibrant personality.

For example ... Here's her display of emotion at four years old, during an extremely exhausting Christmas photo shoot. She was a diva then ...
and now (acting ability inherited from her father).

What you left out is the fact that when we shoot videos, we do them out-of-sequence, then edit them later. She thought I was literally doing it all wrong, evidenced by her repeated comment, "No daddy, that's not what happens next."

What a great video! She is really a ham, isn't she?

Your daughter is as beautiful as you Mama Belle!

Happy Birthday La Petite Belle!

Looks like much fun, Muchas Gracias!

Wendi @ Every Day Miracles said...

Aww! What a sweetie. There is just a certain look in her eye that makes me suspect she is a bit precocious...

Andrea @ Mommy Snacks said...

Birdie said...

Oh so sweet! Happy b-day to the wee belle! Are you serious though? She was really in Nacho Libre???

Rachel said...

Bonne anniversaire? HBD, La Petitie juene fille? It's been a long time since high school French. Why was this video shot? She's a natural. Looks like a wonderful day. I'm planning my girl's 16th soon.

Linda - This was a sermon opener last year ... get it? Being thankful in all things.

Birdie - Are you serious? This is in no way "Nacho Libre." I wish.

Wendi - "Precocious" would be an understatement.

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

Laughing hard right now at the Nacho Libre thing...that is too funny.

She is SO gorgeous, Mama Belle. She definitely looks like a spunky one...I can tell she lights up your life. Happy Birthday!
