Out & About with Stella.....

When I went to get my mail on Friday I had two packages....SQUEAL!!!
The first one I opened was from April at Straight From the Heart. I was the winner of her monthly giveaway. It is a beautiful travel mirror with lots of pink jewels on it. I LOVE it April...thank you so much!
The next package I opened was from Marilyn of Marilyn's Simple Pleasures. Look what my friend sent me, some of her bunny cookies. She even makes these for a local gift shop in her town. Aren't they ADORABLE???? Thank you so much Marilyn. We LOVE them! Stella had fun helping to open the gifts. She knows blog land friends are the BEST!
On Saturday we went to our local park. They were having a benefit to help some of the people affected by the tornado that hit in our town on Feb. 10, 2009. We watched this band. I didn't get their name but they were really good.
Lexi and Stella had to pose in the bee face.
The Jump-n-Jive team performed twice during the benefit. Stella had to jump up and get right into the picture while they were performing. Sit down Stella, we can't see....
This is Lexi and one of her partners during one of their routines.
It was a fun day at the park. After leaving the park we went to Lake Murray. Come back tomorrow and see those pictures. Hope you are having a great Monday.

It sounds like fun day. I know Stella had a ball. It was a nice day on Saturday too compared to today anyway. It is 39 right now! Glad you liked the cookies. Have a great Monday.

Hi Darlene! Oh how nice to get all those goodies! Those cookies are so pretty! That Stella is really something, isn't she? I know she was having so much fun with ya'll! No matter how hard she tries, she'll never be as good as little Lexie!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

What great packages you got Darlene-such nice goodies. I've loved seeing Lexi as part of Jump-n-Jive whenever you show pictures of her routines. I'm really glad Stella got to go and watch her perform in person. Looks like you had a really nice day and beautiful weather too.

OK, Lexi would have laughed at me today. I jumped rope for 1 minute and I thought I would pass out. It is part of my new work out routine! ;(

The Quintessential Magpie said...

I'm just stunned that Stella didn't out jump all the jumpers of the jump rope herself! ;-) LOL! Love this, and look at that cute Lexi jumping her heart out!

Love all of your goodies, Diane, and Stella is SO right. Blog friends are the best!

XO,

Sheila :-)
