  1. Hello Arabella & family, I love the birthday pictures you took of us having a fun birthday! I loved spending my birthday especially with Arabella. I got my Arabella love hugs and a big present bag filled with things she picked for me. A wooden carved squirrel tape dispenser, A weiner dog note pad for my keyboard and a totally cool cotton kitchen hand towel beautifully embroidered picture of owls in their tree with leaves falling to the ground. Luv, luv, luv. Thank you my little luv bug, Arabella, princess of the enchanted forest. Grandma loves my best girl and buddy and I love to read your stories about what you did with your day. Thank you to your mom, Gretchen, my great daughter, for helping you make this page. Thanks to your daddy, Keith, for being such a nice dad. I am so lucky I am in your family!!! I can't wait to read your next story. Talk to you soon. Grandma loves you so much and can't wait to see you soon. Hugs, Grandma Susan

  2. "Green butterfly went up a hill." - I read this note to Arabella and asked her is she wanted to write anything in response to you. That's all she wanted to say. Thank you - she loved hearing your comment read to hear and so did I!

  3. Yay!! I am so glad she and you enjoyed reading it! I plan on keeping up with her stories. She picked the nicest gifts and I was glad she came over to my place with dad to hang out at my house. I had the best birthday party and I love the pictures!! Love to Arabella and you & Keith. Take care, Love Mom , Grandma

  4. Good morning Arabella. I hope you had a great weekend doing fun stuff and visiting grandma Susan' house. I had so much fun doing puzzles and card games and reading to you. Plus the strawberry shortcake

    Grandma is hoping for a new story soon. It is so much fun to read them!!! I wonder if you would ever like to be a storybook writer when you grow up??

    Love, Mom, Grandma Susan
