Birthday Surprise

Lisa, our friend (of many years) in Virginia sent Bela a birthday package.  The box was taped well for protection, so Bela had to work to unveil her prize.  I already knew what was in there, but I didn’t tell!

The outside was really pretty.

Bela is counting the days until she can pack up and get this autograph book filled at Warped Tour.  I can’t wait to take some pictures of her being a fan girl!

 

 

Fan Girl!

Ysabela nearly scared me to death yesterday.  We were sitting across the desk from each other when she checked her phone, took a breath and screamed!  I jumped like I’d been shot from a cannon.  I thought she had seen a spider or something!  It turned out that the text was to update her about Warped Tour.  One of her (many) favorite bands—Pierce the Veil—had signed on to appear!  She already has her ticket for Denver, so she is READY!

She's a fan girl for sure!

Bela and BVB

My daughter is a devoted fan of Black Veil Brides.  Andy is one of her many favorites.  She somehow found an address for his parents.  Before Christmas, she sent a fan letter to the address hoping it would reach Andy Biersack.  When I checked the mail today, a letter from Andy’s mom, Amy, was waiting for her.  It was so cool—it even had a Batman stamp!  Bela saw the stamp peeking out from under the rest of the mail and said, “Whoever sent that letter with the Batman stamp is the coolest person ever!”  I chuckled to myself since I already knew who sent it.

Bela was ecstatic when she opened the envelope!  I would like to thank Amy for her kind response.  It made Bela’s day!

Check out the cool stamp!
