Thankful Thursday...Stella Style

Today is a very special thankful Thursday. Today is Stella-Blue’s birthday. Today the tiniest Kraus turns five. What can I say about Stella? Where do I begin?

Stella's birthday breakfast!

Stella is my constant companion. There is hardly a few hours when we are not together.
The tiniest Kraus, just a day old.
She is the funniest of the Kraus kids and Maizie is her best audience.
She's ready for her close up
She is very helpful.
Helping Auntie Rey paint

Helping Daddy clean up the leaves

She has her own sense of style. She will wear what she wants and she doesn’t care if she looks like she belongs in a retirement home or on a don’t list with a black bar over her eyes, she is going to wear it; the more layers and accessories the better.
Just a few of her many styles
Stella is also the nastiest of the Kraus kids. She will moon you for no reason or lately moon you and fart (classy little lassie) and she does it all with a huge smile and giggles.
Always looking right at the camers
She is the reason I was able to become a stay at home mom. I don’t recommend heart disease as a means of getting there, but she always has a plan.
She even had fashion flair at two
She is not only the funniest one of the three, she is also the mouthiest. I am sorry to say that most of the time I can do nothing but laugh at her. Her squeaky voice yelling at me combined with the hands on her hips and foot stomping, I just lose it.
Show those baby blues
She is a fierce caregiver to her babies. DO NOT mess with them, it will get ugly.
She's my girl, she loves the sun
We cannot imagine the Kraus House without the lovely Stella-Blue, she had made our family complete.

We love you Bean!!

  4. She cracks me up! What a spitfire :) Hope she has a wonderful birthday!

  5. Dear Krauss' We remember Stella Blue's incubation and her debut all to well. We rode the waves with Ted and did a lot of praying for you 'the H'. Stella Blue stands true to her beautiful name. She is a superb fashionista, a cutie pie, and quite the good sister (mooning is par for the course, you need something for her wedding tribute montage). Anyway congrats Krauss House, one and all, and God Bless You Everyone! Happy Birthday Stella.
