We got snowed in for Bella’s 13th birthday today, but thankfully we did get to celebrate together as a family this evening. We also had a little early birthday cake and gift-giving last week with her Grandpa and Grandma Shoup.

Her big gift this year is a big baby Taylor guitar and guitar lessons!

To top the evening off, we had lots of friends and family chime in and give her some words of wisdom, well-wishes and encouragement, too…

If you want to send a video for Bella, too, send them our way now and we’ll be sure that she sees them! We are VERY THANKFUL for all the wonderful family and friends that Bella has in her life.

She has blessed us beyond measure and know that she will only continue to do so as she grows and matures into a young woman.
