"To bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." Isaiah 61:3

Bella=Beautiful!

Over 14 years ago, Grandma Lucille crocheted a beautiful dress in the pineapple pattern for our Elizabeth (soon-to-be-16 year old). The dress was made for Elizabeth to wear to Grandma Lucille and Grandpa Fabian's 50th wedding anniversary. She was so cute that day in this dress. Grace also got to wear it once...she was very hard on it...so it was only a one-time wearing. :)

So, as I was going through my hope chest, I pulled out this beautiful dress and thought "This will fit Bella!" When I showed it to her, she patted her chest and said "Bella, petty."

Yes, Bella, you are pretty...downright beautiful, if you ask me!
