Bella FINALLY Meets Her Texas Aunt!!!

Bella finally got to meet Aunt Karla (my little sis) today. Because our adoption process took longer than expected, she did not get to meet Bella when she was here this past July. So, Karla used her airline miles to come for a long weekend.

Uncle Dave picked out the Beanie Baby Unicorn for Aunt Karla to give to Bella (We named it 'Dave'):

And then this evening, we had Sam's family birthday party complete with a Coldstone Creamery Cake compliments of Grandma:

And, Texas Cousins, guess what? Your mom got to experience a ND October night with snow! We'll post pictures tomorrow!

Love, Paula
