Happy Birthday, Bella!

When we adopted our dog Bella, we arbitrarily chose May 1 as her birthday. For two years now, my munchkin has been asking to have a birthday party for the dog. Maybe I was feeling a little guilty for not having had our usual Christmas cookie-decorating party this year. Or, maybe I'm just insane. For some reason, I said yes.

One of my piano students said the party would be a Bella-bration. I told him I'd give him credit for the name this year, but next year all bets are off!

The girls played Pin The Paw On The Puppy, Tug o' War, and Dog Food Relay. For the relay, we divided into 2 teams and transferred dog kibble from one bowl to another, one little piece of kibble at a time. That tired them out nicely! We made Shrinky Dink dog tags and decorated pupcakes. Aren't they cute? The ears are Tootsie Rolls that I softened for about 5 seconds in the microwave before we molded them into shape.

It turns out that it's a lot easier to have a Bella-bration than to pull off a cookie decorating party in the middle of the Christmas bustle. This could turn out to be a permanent Lowe holiday!

Found these on pinterest, and made the cupcakes for my daughters 2nd bday tomorrow. They turned out so cut! Thanks for the tootsie roll ear idea.
