Bella’s Golden Birthday!

11 Dec

I started this blog just after Bella was born, and here we are, 11 years later! On 11/11 at 11:11 am, Bella turned 11!

Since its a big one, she wanted to invite her entire class for a swim party. We brought them over to our local ministry center because that pool has two slides and a couple of ledges to jump off. I was cringing more than usual because I was responsible for the safety of not one, not five, but 16 children!


This is the lower of the two ledges. The other one is over twice as high! a handful of the kids were brave enough to jump from it!


Bella wanted a Darth Vader cake, so I did my best! Since we can’t get black fondant here, I melted chocolate chips and then piped my own Darth Vader helmet. It wasn’t the greatest, but it did the trick, and Bella loved it!


We also ordered pork bbq sticks and rice from one of Bella’s favorite restaurants. Add in some sodas, candy, and chips, and we had a party!


That party was actually on the 10th, so on her real birthday the next day, we let her choose where she wanted to eat supper. My girl chose the DimSum House and Chatime–two of my favorites! I promise, I did not influence her decision at all, but I was more than happy to oblige! We order a bunch of dumplings, fried rice, noodle soups, and some chicken. For dessert, we all got bubble tea from Chatime and headed to the arcade.




A bonus for Bella’s Nov 11 birthday—Everyone celebrates something! While we’re cheering for Bella, the US is celebrating Veteran’s Day, and in Korea, it’s Pepero Day! I bought some for Bella for eat on her day.


We also discovered something on her birthday….
