How did this happen...4???



Stella turned 4... don't know how that ever happened. One day she was a baby... now she is a full on little girl. She wanted a "tangled" birthday party. I got online with her to look up some cake ideas... that is the last time I will ever do that! She saw the one she wanted... and so I got stuck making the most challenging cake possible. It had me stressing for weeks... and busy as a bee for 4 days trying to make the monstrosity. But, it turned out well (meaning it did not tip over and actually tasted good... she enjoyed it and I felt like I had accomplished something I didn't really think I could) Although the cake looked no where near as perfect as the example I had to go off of... it was good enough for stella... and therefore good enough for me. On her actual birthday we had an enjoyable evening as a family... making sure Stella knew we loved her and thought she was special. On the saturday after her birthday, her friends came over, sang her happy birthday, gave her some presents (all things that go over really well with her) and then we went to bouncy bratz for some running and jumping. In her mind I think the day wasperfect. In my mind... it was a little mind boggling. I still cant believe she is 4... that means I dont have much time before she starts kindergarten... and that seems like it is when it is all over. My baby is getting so big... For her birthday we got her a fishing pole... which she loves... and dance lessons. She has been showing off her dance moves all the time. The other night during family prayer I noticed her tapping her feet one at a time. After the prayer was over, she looked up with a big grin and said... "I was doing toe drops!" Funny little girl! She was also spoiled by her grandparents. She has all the princess dresses and accessories she will ever need. She is one happy little (big) girl:)

At 4 years old Stella loves:
Princesses
fairies
barbie fairy secret
Tangled... and long hair (she points people out in the grocery store with long hair... she admires it soooo much... she loves to get her hair wet in the bath - to help it grow)
helping her parents in the garden
helping her dad weed the lawn
babies
long dresses... to the floor
cheese roll ups
dance class

Oh she and Stella are into the saaaaame things. Emmy is wearing her little mermaid "wedding" dress in bed right now. lol She mixes it up with her Alice in Wonderland dress and her Tangled dress as well. She used some of her money to buy a Tangled barbie doll at the disney store too. SUCH LITTLE GIRLIES!
I must say that not one day goes by that Emmy doesn't talk about Stell and/or Sterling and tells me they are her best friends. Precious. We miss you and love you and if you are still in the area please let me know. We were supposed to meet for ice cream or something but I didn't hear from you guys. Call me/text me! 803-582-9573

Yeah, OSX has a high-DPI mode that scales everything up
and uses the extra pixels where it can, but I believe it only
supports Retina resolutions.

Ok, so if we are heading together with the top forms of Superman
and The Hulk, Hulk would not stand a possibility, even with kryptonite.
Obviously none on the Hulk followers have heard of Superman Prime, Superman one Million, or the completely unstoppable Superman Prime 1 Million.
It isn't going to matter how smart or strong the Hulk can get, because Superman in individuals forms is totally unstoppable. He's above Galactus or on par with him in those forms.

SUPERMAN Each of the WAY.

I'm not italian, and i actually got absolutely nothing towards them, but I listen to girls stating that italian men are soooo sizzling, and gorgeous, with product appears, but these exact same girls are with fellas that are not italian. And when they are italian, they undoubtedly do not appear like models. I mean I can recognize the aggravation of women once they see guys ogling at models/skinny girls, and it makes me query no matter whether my physical appearance is suitable or not. So my question is are males of other ethnicities less attractive? can it be a fantasy of every lady to become with the italian dude?

A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
I believe that you need to publish more on this subject, it may
not be a taboo subject but usually folks don't speak about such topics. To the next! Kind regards!!

These are just some of the many decisions you will need to
